Continental 1162 have no fear, cross 22R, good luck.
« on: July 22, 2010, 06:49:20 PM »
Happened just before 11pm at KEWR July 12, 2010 (just before 0300 Zulu, 2010-07-13)

I have heard that piece on channel 9 on United 828 landing at that time behind FedEx on 22L.  The portion that is blocked , garbled or missing on that clip was the dialog between tower and the aircraft that was in "position and hold" on 22R with all lights on.  That dialog was just after the call from Continental asking abut the aircraft on the runway.   If I remember right it was something like that "Please turn off lights, because you are scaring the aircraft crossing the runway". 

I was laughing so hard, I did not notice when we touched down.  People around me probably thought I'm nuts.
