The FAA said it will fire an air traffic controller who they said not only went to sleep on the job, but had pre-planned it by making a bed for himself on the floor, complete with a blanket.
The incident happened in February at McGhee Tyson Airport in Knoxville, Tennessee. The FAA said the controller went to sleep for five hours during a midnight shift.
Pilots couldn't reach the sleeping controller, and his fellow employee working on another floor had to land seven planes by himself.
There's also an investigation into a controller sleeping while two planes landed at Washington's Reagan National Airport.
