This drawing is from ATC Happenings' blog. Although the site is lacking pictures, (I'm sure that will change) this one certainly makes up for the void. :)

I'm presently on a YVR (Vancouver) layover and thought I'd post something for father's day. I hope none of the father's out there will take offence to the pic I chose. :) :) :)
He is an air traffic controller at a major Canadian centre and wished to remain anonymous as far as name and the exact centre. But one can quickly put two and two together from his writing. Especially when he talks about a major centre dealing with float planes. Did I tell you I was on a Vancouver layover? :)
Capt Doug Morris,
I'm an Air Traffic Controller in Canada and I really enjoy reading your blog. I started off as a flight instructor and after a few years of that I got into ATC, about 15 years ago. It's a career I really enjoy and dealing with professional pilots is great.
I've recently started a blog myself mostly about work as an ATC and if you have time I'd appreciate if you get a chance to take a look. Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated. If you like what you read and you add my blog as one of your links that would be VERY much appreciated.
Thanks for all the great stories. I look forward to more.
His posts are great and very informative. I noticed he has only two followers, so make his day and sign up. It's always good to have ATC on a pilot's side.
So without further ado, please visit his site.
I also moved the ATC link to the right of this posting where you can listen to the "shop talk."
