  1. Before this goes any further let me re inter ate my main point from above. There was absolutely no communication between the ARTCC and pilots that said the controllers would be leaving. Somewhere above I said that all I got was a note from the controller that said he was leaving and he was gone the next second. Fault me for my misinformed views above but there is absolutely no reason for this to happen.

In fact there is no ATC online in Boston...it went from being fully staffed to totally vacant in 5-10 minutes. I realize that the "event" was over at 00Z and this was about 20 minutes after but do you have to willfully
