a fedex dc-10 was 4100 feet above danbury ct around 4:25 today which is really stange for an airliner to be that low here... i even heard a few kids scream! i flight tracked it and it said it was coming from oakland to newark but landed at jfk... anyone know anything?

The panynj.com EWR flight status page has the recovery flight from JFK to EWR, but doesn't mention the diversion. It's safe to assume it had to fly around some thunderstorms which have been parked over much of NJ, northwest Queens and Manhattan for the past couple hours.

there was a lot of stuff flying around those thunderstorms today. thank god for those storms though, the temp dropped maybe 10 degrees afterwards from the high of 101 at LGA today...

it was really hot here today... close to 100 but i dont see why it would fly extremely low over this neck of the woods unless there was some thunderstorms in that area... what a sight it was though!
