Air Traffic Control Audio from Prince’s In-Flight Emergency

TMZ has managed to track down air traffic control audio between the tower at Quad Cities International Airport and Prince’s private jet on the morning of Friday, April 15. Prince’s aircraft is identified as “990”–it was a Falcon 990 business jet. When you hear the controller say “CFR will be waiting,” he means “Certified First Responder”–in other words, paramedics.

The pilot radioed ahead, declaring an onboard health emergency. When you hear the controller say “CFR will be waiting,” he means “Certified First Responder”–in other words, paramedics. Note that the pilot did not mention whether it was a male or female passenger in need of assistance. Thanks to Tom for the link.
