ATC Problem...passing planes

Recommended Posts

I just got past by a 737 on final. I was on final in 172 I was 2nd to land, there was a aircraft on the runway. A thrid aircraft a 737 announce he was 6 miles on final on the ILS ( he was behind me). ATC told him he was third in line for the approach after the 172 (me). There was the 737 passing me and landed. I am glad our real ATC and pilot do not act like this or we would have mid air all over the country. But seriously is there something I can chage to not have this happen again?David AlbrightFAA Flight dispatcherSingle and Mult-engine rated pilot500 hours Real PIC2000 hours Sim PICSim Test Pilot

This happened with me as well on a couple of occasions. I don't think we could do anything about it, other than reduce the slider of ATC Traffic to lessen the traffic approaching an airport, thus minimizing the instances of this happening!
