slate: slapstick in the skies

slate looks at the FAA’s slipshod recording of air traffic reported incidents. originally the article came to me as a piece about mid-air near collisions, but it turned into focusing on the difficulties in gathering air traffic data.

since the illustration was done prior to the completion of the story, i feel i owe air traffic controllers an apology for making them look like slackers. that said, i like how it turned out and that i got to draw laguardia’s beautiful air traffic control tower, building 88 (which i have learned from this gq article, is a piece of junk on the inside. consider me not surprised).
