UA 246 by mic pilot
It seems like this incident took place near teddy intersection at approx. 7000 msl? That’s just a really bad place to be flying if you’re not talking to ATC, with or without a transponder. Teddy is major point on the arrival and anyone who's flown into ORD has heard of it. The Flight Aware...

It's $19.99 a bottle; quite a bit less than WX Block. Is...
