    Matt got to talk to her briefly last night, her English is improving. She is off the market though, my friend keeps a close eye on her. I will try to get a pic of her. The one I took sucked and had my friend in it as well.

    The two that I am closest to. JFK and LGA! However JFK has a great amount of variety. LGA as DNA said is easy to get around!

    For me its SWF.
    I have flown there many times and have done photography there too. The ALSFII approach lights at the top of runway 9 are an awsome site when landing at night! Its the only airport in the area where you hold short for a C-5 doing touch and goes.

    JFK !!!
    The beehive hummm of the JT9D and GE CF680C2,the thunder of the JT8D-17,the rumble of the PW1830 and the high ,thin whine of the PW 545A are all music to my ears!

    For me it's JFK as well. During the high schools I would take the bus to the Pan Am World Port and go to the rooftop to watch aircraft movements, departures and arrivals. Then during my early college years I worked part time on the ramp for one of the service companies. I just about did everything ... From baggage handling, de-icing, to working topside on the 747 cargo birds just to mention a few. I was never bored. Every time the Concorde would arrive or depart I would stop and watch. I got opportunities to visit and sit in various cockpits ... My favorite was probably the DC10 because it seemed to be bigger and comfortable and loved those big windows. I wish I only had a camera with me during those days. Today I live near by JFK and enjoy everything it brings for aviation enthusiasts.

    I was born under the Canarsie approach , and my love of flight and most heart felt flying dreams and aspirations were spawned at JFK, when I first flew in under my own steam in a freight dog DC-3 back in 1994, on the Canarsie, descending on a hot September night over South Ozone Park I had tears in my eyes, when I did the same in a 747-400 BCF 20 years later I felt the circle was complete, I love that airport, it is my field of dreams.

    I love me some JFK. Every time I go there, it is well worth the 90 minute drive. Not only is there a ton of traffic, there can be a ton of variation as well. I love that one of the world's most significant airports is in our backyard.
