« on: July 30, 2011, 01:15:12 AM »
AAL107, a B772 inbound from Heathrow, reported a "hydraulics failure on short final" to the Kennedy Local Controller. The aircraft had to subsequently be towed from taxiway zulu after a short delay. This incident happened during SWAP and a period of especially severe convective activity.
