Mayhem at JFK

So I was on final (4 miles out from JFK runway 4L) when JFK Tower went offline, I was cleared to land on runway 4L but then as soon as tower had went offline I immediately announced that I was on final on runway 4L then a CRJ-200 decided to takeoff when I was 1 mile out and made me go around, super annoying when that happens. I came back around for landing on runway 4L when I noticed a delta flight a few miles to my right so I started to climb to avoid it then I got kicked. I understand I should’ve descended since I was lower than that delta flight (not by much I don’t think) so I believe that is what got me kicked but I wouldn’t have been in that situation if that CRJ-200 never made me go around. I feel like there should be a system in place that gives someone who made someone go around by being on the runway when you’re not supposed to like when a plane is a minute away from touch down a violation. This was in an expert server.


Do you have a replay of the entire event unfolding?

Yup, do I need to upload that?

It may be helpful.

Ok I’ll do that

The game is the game. Don’t need to make anything big about it. happens also in real life sometimes

And when that happens I imagine ATC gives the pilot at fault a number to call.

I mean it’d be concerning if JFK tower went “offline” IRL in the first place


Yeah that would be concerning 😂😂

I agree. We need players to really hold short of runway. It is also not fair for someone to go around and then get kicked, I’ve been around 5 times before and i landed while a aircraft took of😤

What do you mean you got kicked ?

I got a message that ATC or a moderator kicked me from the server

How do I attach a screen recording?
