I saw a headline regarding this last week, but never read the full details of this story until now. The more I read the details, the more shocked I am by what happened. This seems terrifying for those onboard. The NTSB is now investigating this, even going so far as to call it an “accident.”
(audio is in the link above, thank you VAS Aviation)

Oh my God, these guys even shared my video in their news post... :-o :-o

What I find interesting is they almost got to cruise level before realizing of the damage and turning back for JFK :?

I'll personally be following any further investigation about this.

Perhaps while they're at it, the NTSB can also investigate the crappy radio that DELTA TUG 2 has at JFK. ;)

Seriously though, I thought this incident happened a while ago, because I watched the clip of this maybe a week to 2 weeks ago while trying not to spit out my coffee listening to JFK Steve.

Side note: Thank goodness you don't have any clips of JFK Arnie. That guy.... wow.

BL.
