An FAA "oops" causes some problems, time to update!

airtrafic_08-27-08-thumb-400x300The FAA sees this week’s software glitch that disrupted about 600 flights and 60,000 passengers to be a wake up call that things need to change for American’s outdated air traffic control system.

The two computers (amazing only two) that help disrupt flights to controllers are updated multiple times per day. One of the files in one of the updates was corrupted and caused it to crash.

Saying that in one 24-hour period the FAA controls over 300,000 flight plans, only having 600 affected isn’t too bad (unless you were one of those passengers).
