First, who is "downtown"? First time I've heard it and the callsign hasn't made it into any of the lists I use.

Next, Speedbird (747) just reported mod-severe turbulence at 2000' , about 12 miles out from 4R. One plane gone around.  Now (1935) just moderate windshear on the approach.

 Could this be reference to a reporting point, such as the flight was over "downtown"  Manhattan? I notice on some helicopter
chart descriptions they refer to "downtown" and "Statute of Liberty-Ellis Island" inset charts for NYC.

Downtown is DOW (Best Jets International (Minneapolis, MN))

We have been seeing them pretty regularly out here on the west coast.  Don't remember off the top of my head what they specifically fly, but they are business jets.

Along the same lines, does anyone know the three-letter code for Dot.com? I've been hearing that callsign quite a bit here in the NY area...

It's a service offered by FltPlan.com for flights to remain anonymous. Instead of flying under their own N-Number, they can fly under a flight number from FltPlan.com for a fee.
