    Looking at FlightRadar24 I noticed a Russian Special Flight Service IL-96 taking off from 13R/JFK; going SW; I’m guessing to IAD. Plus a Kuwaiti A345 and an unnamed 738BBJ; both on the taxiway...

    Air Koryo YYZ?

    So Flight Radar alerted me to an Air Koryo about to take off from Toronto; Glitch? Or, is there a spotter lucky enough to get a pic and give some info?

    Lemme tell ya; if I could buy the Inwood Golf Course, you better believe I'd set up a spotter's lodging there. I'd charge at the Gaye, too, for non-guests. Who wants the food-stand concession?

    Is the new and improved garbage dump (ski slope/park) open yet? That's a great area to catch the Canarsie Approach. It's right by the Pennsylvania/Fountain Avenue Avenue exit/entrance, on Shore...

    Weird when the shoe is on the other foot. Even if it was over 60 years ago. I'm curious if the Luftwaffe used any of the P-38 technology during the war. Or, even after.

    Any link? Is this supposed to be built as a stand-alone or is it replacing one of the terminals or hangars?

    Externally ground breaking in terms of destinations and being the first (in most cases) of introducing new technology. Really awful in customer service. The Pan Am Worldport was a mess. Food served...

    I'm curious, Speedbird1, were you a regular spotter at JFK (the rooftop) back in the early '80s? Have I already asked you this question?

    I spotted and traded on the roof-top from '78-'83. Who else was there around that period? Most of my excursions took place on Saturdays and Sundays.

    Judging by the live news-feeds it looks like the ceiling/top of the fuselage was on fire before it landed. Sounds silly, but, I wonder if a majority of the empennage was lost beforehand as well. I...

    I have to be honest, I wouldn't even care about not catching the LH 748 after seeing and/or getting a pic of the Tu-154. And a cosmonaut training (?) aircraft at that. I'm quite jealous.
