I've got pictures of all the excitment, including one that you can clearly see the tread seperation taken on one of its flybys where it went right over my head. They will be in the queue momentarilly.

They were better of not going to EWR anyhow, weather is crap up there! They would have just held there instead  Smile)

That's cool. I will be sure to check airliners.net data base for pictures of this incident   

Edit: Does anyone know the aircraft registration #?

Yea, I saw this on CNN too. Why all the news coverage? This happens at least everyday to just about every airline. It's really not a big deal.

I am curious -- the topic reads: AA 757 Hydraulic Problem Over MIA

where did the topic starter (Elal106) get this information? and this is not hydraulic problem? (just blown tire?)
