    its been like that all week. IL-62's every where. On Tuesday One TU-154 landed followed by a IL-62 and then a TU-154 departed. I was thinking to myself was I really at JFK.

    The Russians are here

    I am so, so, so pissed. I just got back from visiting family in the Five Towns. Before I left Philadelphia, I thought, "maybe I should bring my camera. Even just the point-and-shoot. Nah, what are the chances of needing it?" On the way there yesterday, 9/17, at exactly 12:30PM, as I was driving east on Rockaway Blvd, looked to the left as I passed the DMV and saw, off in the distance, what looked like a 727. And as I got closer, I thought, "it's just a '27." Then as I approached the 22L approach, there it was, a damn Altyn Air TU-154. My wife and son couldn't figure out why I kept hitting my head on the steering wheel. Did anyone know about this, or get it on film?
    Never to leave the camera at home again,
