2 Emergencies At JFK 10 Feb

Sun Feb 11, 2007 3:29 pm

I was flying tonight and heard NY Center putting aircraft in holding. One aicraft had an emergency and was on the runway at JFK. A second aircraft inbound to JFK was airborne and was making an emergency landing at JFK. This was around 10PM eastern on 10 Feb.

Anyone have any information on these?

Thanks ...

One of the flights was an AA A300 inbound from STI last night. The indicator light in the cockpit showed that one of the landing gear had not locked into place for landing, but the gear was down. Emergency equipment was on hand, but the flight landed without incident. I don't know what the other incident was.

I still can't find anything on the 2nd incident. I'll keep looking.

The 2nd one was an Atlas 747 freighter with hot brakes...stopped on 31R while brakes were inspected, taxied in on own power...

It was very interesting to hear NY Center stacking aircraft into holding on such a beautiful night. I wonder how many times this happens at civilian airports (multiple emergencies)? At a military base, it is common to have two fighters diverting with problems.

I would imagine this situation is extremely rare. First time i've something like this happening in a LONG time.

What was the cause of the hot brakes? Did they land long? Did they return shortly after takeoff for some reason and land heavy? It just seems that a properly executed landing should not result in hot brakes unless there is some other extenuating circumstance.
...are we there yet?

Two emergencies at the same time is pretty rare but given the amount of traffic that flies into JFK, it is surprising that it doesn't happen more often.

Does that explains the 7 hour delay on the JFK-SDQ route today on the A300? Schedule Departure was 12:40, actual departure 19:43.

Regards.

emergencies are interesting. sometimes, depending on what runways we're landing on, we won't know that something us going on until 10 airplanes call us in the hold. a dead giveaway is when airplanes aren't released after 10 minutes or we get second calls asking for diversion instructions.

other times we just look out the window and see fire trucks rolling for something. the most recent one was a DL MD-80 that suffered a compressor stall. before that, an AC EMB-175 landed with it's nose gear actuator broken. that caused the gear to turn 90* and ended up in a pretty interesting landing. the crew did an amazing job, they kept the nose up for a good 2000 ft before dropping it and stopping in another 500.


all in a day's work though...
