A one hour and 15 minute session as Tower at KEWR. Approach closed soon after I opened, which led to a lot of traffic, and a lot of fun! I was assisted by @IF_Aviation1 on ground, which helped a lot!
Runways in use:
Arrivals: 22L, 22R
Departures: 22R, 11
The hub airline of Newark has some majestic aircraft.
An Air Canada A330 lands, with traffic in line for departure.
A United 777 rotates with company traffic at the terminal
More A330 action, this time by SAS
A close shot of a United 787 with departing traffic in the background
Showcasing United’s variety of aircraft!
Thanks for viewing my photos. To those of you who were flying at the time of me controlling, I appreciate you following instructions (those of you who did 🙃).
I had a lot of fun handling the influx of arrivals without an approach controller, and would do it again in a heartbeat.
Have a good rest of your day/evening.
