Thats an ugly configuration. Good luck to anyone going through NYC tonight

Anyone know if they are still landing that way? Metar shows 4R RVR so I am thinking not.
But 180/15 means a good tail wind for 4R

I understand enough about JFK to realise that a 13L ILS is abnormal, I know it affects normal operations at LGA, EWR and TEB. But if they still have two runways in use, one for arrivals and one for departures, why does this cause delays at JFK (more so than usual)?

The strangest I've ever seen was aircraft coming straight down the hudson at about 2000-3000 feet on a clear day (some already gear down) and then making a hard left right around the George Washington Bridge and going into 13 at LGA.

That’s the River Visual approach. I remember they used that a lot on the weekends about ten years ago when Runway 4/22 was closed for maintenance. I haven’t seen them use it for a long, long time.

This is a rumor that I can't substantiate, but apparently the only person at JFK qualified to fix the localizer was out on a furlough day.
