    JFK is working with 1 runway today!

    fun afternoon watching flightradar24 flights are circling all over the place and diversion galore.

    combo of visibility, wind, and construction.

    fun fun fun!
    Overheard on JFK TOWER - S Turns are fine, U-Turns are bad....

    It would seem that the word "working" is a bit of an overstatement. Things were a mess there all day, spending most of the morning on 31R. They briefly switched to the 4s a little after 11, but that didn't last long at all, maybe 15 minutes tops. Then it was back to 31R only until I stopped listening to LiveATC mid afternoon.

    I remember landing at JFK on the 4's in the 727 on a day that boasted an RVR of 1800 feet and a 25 kt direct crosswind, only JFK !!!
    The beehive hummm of the JT9D and GE CF680C2,the thunder of the JT8D-17,the rumble of the PW1830 and the high ,thin whine of the PW 545A are all music to my ears!
