I am putting together an aviation history presentation for a training class I will be instructing. I have been scouring the web to no avail for any site that might contain historical air traffic control recordings from the 1960’s or earlier. I know of some hobbyists who record/retain ATC communications and I suspect that practice has existed for years.
I have come upon a gentleman who has an hour of recordings from MIA tower from 1972 and I am awaiting that promised MP3. With Braniff, Eastern, National, Pan Am, TWA, Southern, etc. etc., he tells me its a great hour of nostalgia. Although, ideally I would like to find some older data.
Neither NATCA nor the FAA has been able to provide any leads.
Has anyone ever come across such data? Any ideas or suggestions?
