    Well folks I have not seen VP-BDJ at LGA since late June and I believe DT is in town which draws me to two
    conclusions. Either the Boeing is undergoing heavy MTC somewhere or its being parked at another airport for now,
    maybe JFK or HPN. Comments Welcome !

    she's not at HPN. flew up there today and couldn't for the life of me find here. most likely she's undergoing heavy mx... but where?
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    According to flight trackers, he flew to Jacksonville on June 26 and hasn't flown since.

    What's going on down there? Maintenance facility or something maybe? He's not getting a new plane, is he?

    i sure hope he's not getting a new bird... we'd definately miss the 727 at LGA.

    What if he gets an L-1011 and keeps it LGA? I'd much prefer that. lol

    Maybe Ron has an idea of what's goin on down in VQQ.

    I can't help but wonder if this has something to do with the day they where in position on 13 a few months ago, cancelled takeoff clearance and returned to the ramp with a MTC problem and did not depart later.

    If Trump is getting a new plane my guess is a BBJ which would sure look nice in a scheme similar to his 727.

    And I don't know if any MTC or Overhaul facility in JAX, there is one at Lake City, Florida (LCQ) approx 100 miles to the west but I think there primary function is repainting. I know US and UA have both used them in the past.

    i would love an L1011 at LGA again! then again, a BBJ would be a nice tenant also.

    1939 = 7:39pm GMT. We are minus 4 from GMT, so that's 3:39pm, no?

    Yes, NY is at GMT - 4 right now - it's GMT - 5 after Daylight Savings Time ends.

    Damn you, Trump. Eluded me again!

    Dave Lu was out there with me at Herman MacNeil Park. I called Senga and asked him to track it for me, as it was 4pm and already late. Senga said that according to the tracker, it had still not even departed yet. So I came home.

    So it seems like the plane has been in Jacksonville for two months. Probably received some serious maintenance, and maybe even a paint job. Perhaps we'll see a new paint scheme!
