  1. Audio begins a little after 3 minute mark (3:10) on this recording...

  2. "Oil on the windshield" - YIKES!!!

  3. Controller doesn't seem to be very engaged or seem to understand that the plane lost its ONLY engine and can't maintain altitude. Her first priority seems to be to clear him for the GPS approach which wasn't helpful. Then She laughs when the pilot says he is going to land in a field. And being below minimum vectoring altitude shouldn't mean she can't still provide vectors to the runway.
