    DCA 09-01-2010

    Went out to DCA (Gravelly Point) when I was visiting my brother last week. Borrowed his nifty 250 because I only brought a short lens down.

    08-14-2010 - JFK - Bayswater Park

    Decided to go out today because 1) I haven't been spotting for a long time and 2) wanted to check out the Mounds and Bayswater - both of which I've never been. Went to the Mounds first, nothing doing...

    Re: ANNOUNCEMENT: The New NYCAviation.com!

    Wow, nice job. I've been away awhile shooting studio stuff and some NASCAR but I decided that it was time to spot again and I went to "the" site and found this. Holy ch*t!

    Re: Canon Announces 50D

    Hmm, interesting. I'm still happy with my 40D, I think more MP doesn't make that big a difference to me. The camera I'd like to see them upgrade is the 5D.

    JFK 8/16

    Re: Anyone know where to spot at ORD?

    Thanks Senga for the map. As it turns out, many of those locations are heavily patrolled by security, police, vigilant employees or all of the above. Had one encounter with the police (see the...
  8. ORD on North York Road in Benzenville, IL 01-Aug-2008

    Wouldn't you know my first encounter with law enforcement would be when I'm doing some spotting as a traveler.

    I got a late start (6:45pm) and was really just pre-scouting places before doing my...

    Re: Three questions about spotting at LGA

    Q33 bus from the 74th St-Roosevelt Ave station on the E,F,G,R,V,7 lines will take you to Planeview Park. Just take the bus until you reach 23rd Ave. You can tell because the bus will pass a bus depot...

    Found this flyer. Doesn't seem that it's going to be as involved as the one in Tuxedo. http://www.aviatorsports.com/download/r ... .16.08.pdf

    Doh, I don't get out of work until 5pm at the earliest and even then couldn't get out to JFK until after you're long gone.

    Re: JFK Shootout Sunday 7/13?

    Looking at Google Maps, it looks like either the Long Term Lot station (Lefferts) or Federal Circle would work. I've never been on the AirTrain via the Howard Beach station so I don't know about the...

    Me too. I've been staying in doing too much studio photography and not enough spotting.

  17. Re: Greenwich Residents Monitor Plane Noise - NYCA Quoted

    What a bunch of crybabies! I grew up in Fresh Meadows which I think is the approach for 31 back before the days of 727 hush kits and the noise isn't that bad. And I wasn't a spotter back then so it...

  19. Re: U.S. carrier, 2 staff charged in Concorde crash

    That's a statement that you cannot back up with any fact. Certainly other aircraft types have blown tires on take-off and the aircraft hasn't ruptured fuel tanks and crashed like the Concorde did.

    Re: Anyone flown Delta JFK-SFO?

    Both legs on Delta are 737. I did a quick search on Virgin reviews and it doesn't look good. Sounds like the TV doesn't work much of the time. I also priced the itinerary and it was at the high end...

    Yeah. I've flown B6. Not bad but their loyalty programme is not great at all.

    Curious about Virgin but miles are miles.
