Touch And Go At JFK?

Tue Nov 01, 2011 9:19 pm

Hi all:

I'm sitting in one of the terminals at JFK and just witnessed a DL 767 do a touch and go. I watched him land and turned away briefly. When i looked back out the window it was rotating and lifted off. Can anyone confirm if a DL 767 did in fact do a touch and go and if so why? No aircraft have departed from that runway before or after this 767 so i am sure my eyes aren't deceiving me! However there is always the possibility they did. FYI this occurred at approximately 17:09. Thanks!
Please direct your attention to the flight attendants in the cabin...

Quoting safetyDemo (Thread starter):

I wasn't there, but maybe the initiated the go around rather late, so that the airplane touched and then lifted off again. We call that a rejected landing.
