Thread: September 16th/17th. - [email protected]

    September 16th/17th. - [email protected]

    Hi everyone!

    First of all, this is my first post up here - I'm actually a spotter from Brazil who's staying in NYC for a while... I’ve been here for almost three weeks now, haven’t been able to do some spotting yet though. Still, as I might be going back next week I would like to have spent a day at the airport and do some ‘local spotting’. Since I’ve never been here before I’d like to ask if anyone might be interested in going to JFK on Sunday, Sep-17 (the weather’s supposed to be good) with me or could help me out how to get to the good spots (I don’t have a car, so I have to rely on public transportation). Coming from Brazil, my priorities would of course be photographing some local traffic (especially JetBlue’s E-Jets…) but also some international stuff.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated – also, if Saturday is a better day for spotting, that would certainly be an option too.

    For some of my latest shots:

    If anyone wants to contact me privately, my Email address is as follows:

    I’d be happy if someone joined me for a day out @ JFK!!!

    All the best,

    Marcelo

    Welcome to the boards, Marcelo!

    I think that if the weather is nice, we (Phil, me and maybe some others) might go out on Saturday. Where are you staying? Have you checked out the spotting maps?

    At JFK you'll defintely get all of the jetBlue you'll ever want to see, but it can be a pain to access by public transportation.

    Marcelo glad you found the site, I know we were emailing back and forth for a bit. As long as the weather is nice I'll be out there this weekend as well.

    I'll be out at LGA on Sunday morning with Andy Walker from MAN, and depending on what's happening we may head out to JFK in the afternoon.

    Tommy and I are heading to JFK now. If they are on the 4s like earlier, we'll probably be at Bayswater.

    I started a new thread about spotting on the 17th with five visitors from Germany. Anyone want to join us. Not sure yet where. LGA if they are on the 4s till Noon, then JFK. Rumor is that CO's PeterMax will make it's last flight today to EWR (or from) before a maintenance check in Houston. Not sure if they're doing a repaint or not.

    Anyone around can give us a call on 201.481.0647.

    Edit: I was thinking of going out, but it still seems hazy (more so than last Sat.) and I have work to do. Oh well. Maybe next weekend.

    Have fun whoever goes out.
