I had a camera with me at work the other day and I thought those who track ACARS messages might be interested in seeing the system in action....so I took this short movie to show what an ACARS ATIS request looks like in the plane.

and this one shows an ACARS request for SIGMETS affecting the eastern United States, plus the Data Link systems pages that shows the frequencies our box uses.


...sorry for the camera movement but we were in and out of the tops, light chop all altitudes....

thanx for sharing...... now the stupid question: where did you hide your scanner in the cockpit?
lol...no scanner in the cockpit, already enough radios in there to keep track of....maybe an Ipod or laptop sometimes(so I'v herd :D ) but no scanners.


Hey, thats cool! What kind of aircraft were you in?

The airplane that day was an EMB-145. I got the idea to take the videos as I wanted to recored one to show family that "Area 51" is in FMS nav databases, but I didn't have the nerve to post that one on the internet! ;)
