Question of the Week/Month 57:21

We have feedback in the hopper related to air traffic controller training, specifically at a busy tower when the controller working was in training and the training controller had to step in and over key the trainee. Do any of you have a story where you could tell someone was training? What happened? A funny meme, click here. 58:20
