Doug White's Speech and Reunion with the Air Traffic Controllers

Doug White gives a moving speech at a National Air Traffic Controllers (NATCA) ceremony in 2010. He honors the air traffic controllers who helped to save his life and the lives of his wife Terri and daughters Bailey and Maggie after the pilot of the King Air 200 (N559DW) they chartered died suddenly. Doug also honors pilot Kari Sorenson for his invaluable input on how to fly a King Air 200. In his speech, Doug talks about how the controllers used their ingenuity and split-second decision making to instruct him on how to land the plane. He describes their actions as standing in sharp contrast to government bureaucrats, who are far too slow and ineffective at solving problems.
