PANC traffic update request and question (General)

submitted by atccheif to /forum/general

If you are not too busy, I am requesting an update of traffic at Anchorage. Also, I was wondering how you go about doing traffic updates, is there a database or do you just do it yourself? Thanks!

Ok, lemme get back to you in a day or two.

Regarding HOW, I used to fly to every airport in the world and write down what I saw out the window. But that bankrupted me, so after I got out of debtor's prison I created several spider-like robots to climb the fence and photograph everything. But eventually I was caught and went back to prison, serving multiple sentences in the US, UK, Canada, Sweden, and Thailand. After that I switched to drones, but got in trouble for airspace violations and went back to prison yet again. I'm actually writing this to you from prison now.

(Actually, I made all of that up.)

I have a few different methods, none of which are perfect. Ultimately, I may start paying FlightStats for bulk data, or something like that.
