    I assume that you are driving. If you are intested in museums there is a small one at Schenectady County Airport (about 10 miles NW of ALB). I drive by it regularly, but I've never actually stopped...

    There were no news articles in the local media that I saw, so at this point all I can do is guess. Scrapping it seems unlikely since there would be plenty of choices other than Albany to do that. ...

    Thanks for the replies. I assume that it will go out by rail but I imagine that it will need to be taken apart some first. And it still begs the question of its destination. Will they scrap it?

    737 in Albany via barge

    I noticed this at the port of Albany on the Hudson River today. It came by barge and then was lifted ashore with a crane.

    Nice shots! I like the motion blur on the Georgian 1900. Hopefully we'll see some special schemes as US continues to use the A319/320 here.

    Well, after far too long an absence, I was able to get out to ALB in some sunshine today. I don't think that I had been out for a few months. Sometimes life gets in the way!

    I assume that he was shooting through the gap in a gate at the end of Sicker road. It's spot A on this site's spotting guide for ALB.

    Did some checking after my post. It would appear that AVP broadcasts its atis over the VOR frequency 111.6.

    As long as you scanner can tune that frequency, you should still be able to hear it. ...

    My interested was piqued by this as I've always loved the F-4. Apparently, these F-4s are now QF-4s and still fly.
