Caught this short bit on JFK Ground shortly after 10:00 local tonight.

I've captured some of the Center and Ground and all of the Approach and Tower comms concerning this flight from the point that the emergency was declared onwards. I've removed unrelated comms from the Center and Ground but left it in for the Approach and Tower, just removed dead air throughout.

There's a funny moment if you listen carefully just after they land and another pilot asks the tower what kind of emergency it was.

Surprised that the emergency services were so laid back.

Thanks for finding that.. I caught the initial ground, tower & departure, but couldn't figure out where they went when handed off to Boston Center.

And of course, by "where they went," I mean that I couldn't find them on any of the available Boston Center archive files. I think the one I needed was out of service.

Unbelievable.  With four air marshals, you would expect that at least one of them would establish communications with local forces by mobile phone after touchdown.
