    Unlike Manny (whom I haven't met yet, am looking forward to that) I was luckily on the correct side of that 96. I was out in Bayswater alone and with no idea that it was in town, and was gobsmacked...

    Hi Joe, there was another NYCAv'er hidden in the reeds... me. I was about, uhm, 500ish yards east of your position. You took some good shots in crappy light conditions. I put a couple of mine on my...

    Re: What type of camera does everyone have?

    I'm another one of the D200 lovers here. Pair of good old 200s for planes & wildlife, most often with the 300/4 AF-S lens and all three converters -- TC-14, 17 and 20, not all at the same time :) The...

    Re: Misc Seattle with some Canada.

    Great variety! I really like the Otter -- nothing says "Pacific Northwest" to me like a floatplane and heavily forested slopes. And I'll never get tired of Seattle shots with Mt Rainier looming in...

    Bayswater Park sunset shots 4/23

    What does an airplane photographer do when it's super windy and clear and they are landing on the 4s at JFK, but he only has time in the late afternoon when everything is backlit? Take the A train to...
  8. Re: Air Force One and Air Force Two to Visit NYC On Thursday

    Got up at 6 and yes, it was hazy indeed -- I called the JFK ATIS which poetically said there was "mist". Nicer sounding than haze but still an unphotographable soup of humid smoggy crapness, so I...
  9. Re: Air Force One and Air Force Two to Visit NYC On Thursday

    All right! Thanks, that is very useful indeed. I'll most likely be at LGA for the Biden arrival and JFK for AF1 departure. Subject to weather...
  10. Re: Air Force One and Air Force Two to Visit NYC On Thursday

    I'm going to try and catch AF1 and/or AF2 tomorrow. Anybody wants to join me, welcome!

    I would imagine 747 and helos at JFK plus C-17s for the limos, and 757 or smaller at LGA with the VP. If I...

    Re: JFK 04/14 Morning

    I was at Bayswater Pk. the same day and caught some of the same stuff as Eric -- only taking off, not landing. Tried some extreme handholding with a 300/4 and a 2x converter. That pushes you up to...

    Re: Bayswater to Close April 1st (UPDATE!)

    Went Friday 4/2 and got there late for my taste (9.45) as I walked from the Mott Av subway station. Let's just say that the walk is an interesting experience in urban sociology -- one during which...

    Re: Aircraft noise problem in Park Slope? Really?

    Not another Brit in the NYC area??[/quote]

    Nope! :) Made in Milan, Italy -- about 5km north of rwy 36 at LIN. The Tridents & 1-11s were the BA LHR flights. They switched to 757s when I was in...

    Re: Aircraft noise problem in Park Slope? Really?

    Fair point.... however I'm probably the one resident of the area who bought a house here precisely *because* it was under the approach path to LGA. Morning coffee on the roof deck with a 300... yeah!...
  15. Re: Your Airliners.net and jetPhotos.net pictures - January 2010

    Very good exercise in a difficult subject: How to make Southwest 737s interesting. The birds flocking around the eagle would make a perfect illustration for a story on birdstrikes. Get that one on...

  17. Re: Keep an Eye Out: Alitalia Paints First 777 in New Colors

    AZ had the best logo bar none in the history of modern industry, a perfect example of timeless design from 1970 (nineteen SEVENTY! Must be a...

    Re: American Bids $1.1 Billion for JAL

    Time for historical irony: remember the Japan-bashing of the 1980s, when Americans reacted to what seemed at the time to be widespread buying of US assets by the Japanese? It didn't happen. Japan,...

    Really nice. Number two is a classy shot. And the fourth one? I'm guessing Italian AF 767 tanker before engine & boom installation?

    Re: Air France A380 Pics

    Nice and sharp photos.

    I called ATIS at 1100 and it said 22L arrivals, so I didn't go because I was going to go by subway, and Inwood/Bayswater for 31L was my only option. ARGGH. I'm happy...
