Southwest Airlines Famous Stuck Mic


As if having a stuck mic on frequency isn’t bad enough, it can be a lot worse depending on what you say.  This Southwest airlines pilot found out the hard way as he was made famous a couple years ago while traversing through Houston Center’s air space up in the flight levels.  The controller tried numerous attempts to intervene, but when you have a stuck mic…you can’t hear anything else as you are constantly in transmit mode.  As the audio progresses you can hear a few pilots check on and are very quick to point out that it was not them with the stuck mic.  This Southwest Airlines famous stuck mic is one for the ages.  I wonder what happened to the pilot?
