I was at work today and had a radio on me. Operations didn't say anything about it so it leads me to believe that everything and everyone is okay. I'll try and find out more. Unfortunalty I'm home now.

I saw that too, but I was in a hurry to get over to our gate in T4 for our charter flight...

Nothing on the local NY news, so I'd assume it's nothing major.

It's not even known if this was for sure an emergency landing. It could have just been a fuel leak.

Could have been a faulty indicator light... that's the kind of "emergencies" that happen very often in commercial aviation.

There were 2 planes taken OOS for mechanicals that day...

Just curious how do you sum it all upto a fuel leak. I know its just a guess but out of the 10000 things that could have happened why did you choose that one?

The emergency was just a #1 failure after takeoff.
