I was driving up the ramp to the Goethals bridge yesterday when a AWE a320 passed overhead landing on runway 4R at EWR. Less than 10 seconds later an AA MD80 or some similar model passed above as well. I thought that was way to close so I figured the MD80 would go around. Traffic on the bridge was slow so I looked out toward the runway and the A320 was about to touch down and the MD80 was still right behind it. I had to pay attention to the road for the next few seconds so I didn’t see exactly what happened but I looked out again and didn’t see the MD80 in the air anymore so there was no go around that I could see. FA confirmed this saying that the 2 planes landed at the same time.
I didn’t think there was enough space between R and L runways for a simultaneous landing but could it be that the MD80 was on 4L?
