Departing Santa Fe New Mexico

fholbert asked:

Listen to what’s going on. IFR departures are backed up six deep. An IFR arrival just went missed approach and VFR aircraft are departing without delay. I had to laugh.

this is pretty crazy, but i do have to give the controller some credit seeing that he was pretty much all by himself

Yes but the visibility was high. The valley slopes downhill quickly to the south. Albuquerque was 2500 BKN.

Yea, he spent more time on the phone with center than on the radio with us. I edited most of that out. He was giving it his all however.

The tower controller seems to be a one man show. He needs some help.
