    Whoooohaaa, that PAA 72 is not a usual is it???????
    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    I was talking to a cop who was there watching the planes... YES I SAID COP!!! NYPD officer enjoying the planes.. He told me that he has seen it one other time before.

    And here is a "lil" story if anyone is interested....

    While spotting I saw some NYPD cruisers with their warning lights on coming out of the marine terminal area... With a bunch of black cars. Then i happened to notice 2 pedestrians walking on the parkway, east bound. The convoy started to go east also, then out of nowhere the second car after the cop stopped short(it was a Chevy Impala) the cop proceeds slowly.. Then gives 2 bursts with his siren, slams it in reverse back up to the convoy, then at the same time the impala slams into reverse peeling out going back. They then waited a minute and continued on. It was very interesting indeeeeeeeeeeed :shock: heres the cars, in order.. I know it has nothing to do with aviation but i felt like i was in a movie lol

    I went out late this afternoon and got a few good shots.

    surprised to see this around 4pm.


    Heard Cactus 12 over the scanner, this is what showed up, I guess fresh out of the paint shop.

    I was out at LGA with a friend of mine in the afternoon... had two cops from the NYPD come over...we chatted for like 15 minutes about aviation, airliners, Flight Sim, and I even told them about this Mad Dog that was coming in at the time... but we decided not to shoot that much more because I wanted to get over to JFK...and we did. Got to the "alternate 31R spot" because my friend says he hates the Costco spot with a passion. Saw Canyon Blue come in...all those other arrivals (didn't get too many good pics though which sucked) and then as it got dark, two more of my friends joined up and then thats when they switched to landing on 13L. We went over to the Cargo areas until 9 pm watching the arrivals and such... real cool! I miss that spot!

    It was great seeing Chris and Erik out at Planeview on Sunday. I missed the Pan Am, but got one of these myself:



    Haven't see this before - an American Eagle RJ in special "Make A Wish" markings:



    Saw a bunch of biz jets as well:







    It was great weather, and great spotting, hope to see you all out there again soon.

    Wow. I spent the weekdn at the LGA Wyndham Hotel, and had a 5th floor view facing the airport.

    While Chris was at Planeview, I was taking pics from my hotel window. I've only edited one so far. It's a really bad edit of it, but jsut an example:

    You got that Emirates at LGA? I'd be surprised too! :D

    I assume you were at JFK, right? Nice shots!
