Summary
261 Max plays ATC audio and discusses a fatal Bonanza crash near the Westchester Co. Airport. He discusses things the pilot and controller might have done differently. The pilot declared an emergency about 22 minutes into the flight, though he’d been having engine issues for nearly 20 minutes. It also took him over 2 minutes to follow a vector toward the airport. Poor weather also played a role.

Summary
260 Max talks with Rob Mark about a listener based at KPWK who usually departs runway 16, and turns within 1/2 mile of the runway, because KORD is straight ahead. This puts him in a better position for returning to the airport, provided he lands on one of the other runways. Rob and Max talk about why the FAA recommends landing straight ahead, and the training one should do before turning back.
