[Maybe our Star Family did this so that no planes would be in the air? Can’t say it was a plane if none can fly during the time they showed up! T]

JFK, LGA and EWR Are Experiencing Delays of 30 Minutes to 1 Hour after Smoke and Odors Occur at TRACON Center
(CBS) CBS News has received reports that normal operations have resumed after a halt of all departures and arrivals at New York airports.
The FAA website reported earlier that all three New York airports have halted takoffs and landings due to fumes, smoke and odors at the regional air traffic control center.
New York TRACON controls the airspace above John F. Kennedy International Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and LaGuardia Airport.
Reported departure delays are about one hour, while arrivals are delayed about 30 to 45 minutes.
“Local fire department is on scene,” says Jim Peters of the FAA. “A few controllers stayed behind to handle flights remaining in the air. However, with limited staff most flights will be held at the gate or put into holding pattern.”
Peters expects possible major delays in the region as soon as the situation is resolved.
