Wasn't sure whether or not to put this into Tech/Ops but here it goes.
I was driving home north on the NJ Turnpike tonight and as I was passing EWR at about 1145, planes were landing on 22L, but what was different is that you could see them turning only a few miles ahead from the west to line up. I have never seen this before,(except on a 29 approach) and sure enough as I got up to exit 15(about 2 miles north) a Jet Blue 320 was coming from the west and made a 90 degree turn to line up with the runway. I find this odd because usually planes landing on the 22's always go up over north Jersey and then line up around Teterboro or Giants Stadium. Any explination? I would like to also note that as I got closer to the stadium planes were flying over that direction as well.
