Software upgrade may have caused 400 U.S. flight cancellations: FAA

Published

on

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said on Sunday that a software upgrade at an air traffic center in Leesburg, Virginia, may have led to more than 440 flights getting canceled on the heavily populated U.S. East Coast on Saturday.

Travel at airports affected by the glitch resumed normal operations by Saturday evening after tens of thousands of passengers were affected by flights up and down the Atlantic Coast being canceled or delayed.

In a post on Facebook, the FAA said it had disabled the new features added from the upgrade until it completes its investigation.

There is no sign that the automated software that was upgraded has any “inherent problems,” the FAA said.

Beto O’Rourke’s ‘war tax’ policy proposal is straight out of ‘Starship Troopers’

Published

on

Amid an overcrowded Democratic presidential candidate field, it's hard to distinguish yourself from the pack if you don't slot easily into the scale that runs from "pro-corporate centrist" to "left-populist." If you're former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke —  who falls somewhere in the middle, politically, and somewhere towards the top, looks-wise — you pull a militaristic policy proposal out of your hat that recalls some of the most campy pseudo-fascist sci-fi ever written.
