As Avianca Flight 52 prepared for landing, a series of traffic-related delays kept their aircraft circling above JFK Airport longer than expected. Although the crew was prepared for bad weather and a wait before they could land, they weren't prepared for what came next-- and neither were the passengers onboard. Join Stephanie as she shares a story about how essential communication is in all aspects of aviation safety in this week's episode of Take to the Sky: the Air Disaster Podcast.
