I went out for a run tonight around 1940 eastern time and shortly after I heard an airplane coasting in overhead (I live under the end of the FLCON arrival on the NE side of ATL). I looked up and saw a 767-400 dumping fuel, much to my surprise.
I looked up the arrivals on Flightaware and could not find any air returns to ATL this evening- the only 767-400 arrival around that time was a JFK arrival.
Does anyone have any info on this? Not sure why a JFK arrival would be dumping fuel unless there was a pretty major malfunction, and its ground track didn't show any oddities.
Maybe some of you out there with your wonderous connections can find something out??
