Possible Emergency for FI630?

Just checked FlightRadar24 and noticed that Icelandair 630 from Boston to Reykjavik turned around a few minutes after takeoff. I checked the squawk code and it looks normal. I’m listening to the approach and tower ATC via liveatc.net. Updates will follow below.

Update (11:02PM EDT): ICE630 has landed safely on 33L parked at gate E3A. No word on what the situation was but I will keep an eye on local news or airport info.

I heard earlier that it may be a landing gear problem, not sure though

International airlines here always want to take 15R (closest runway to intl terminal)

What are you using to listen to at Atc?

Me too, just checking if there was a better source.

No word from ICE630

No more activity for now, not sure if the aircraft will leave tonight…next flight isn’t until late tomorrow afternoon around 3-4PM, but I will keep an eye out

I guess they´d get a lower Vr, wouldn´t they?

Honestly something happened east of Plum Island. It stopped its ascent near that area.
