Air One Grounded


A fair and accurate representation of the Cessna Cutlass which served as Air One.

WTIC-AM has announced the permanent grounding of the well-branded Air One traffic plane flown since 1980 by Mike Alan.

The station says it is moving toward ground-based traffic reporting saying it is just as accurate and perhaps even more accurate than air-borne reporting, because the use of traffic cameras gives a fuller picture of morning and afternoon commutes. Like many other aspects of what we now refer to as legacy media, new technology is simply making old reliable tools obsolete.
