    Columbus Day Weekend.

    Who's heading out to JFK. I'll try to get to Cargo Plaza or Bayswater, only because I don't have enough zoom for anything else.

    I will not be out. I will be busy catching up on the 1500 shots I have taken earlier this year and never put up or had a go with.

    Re: Columbus Day Weekend.

    I may be out this weekend...it's Columbus Day already? Damn, out of work a few weeks, and I've lost all track of time :D

    Of course, it's not really Columbus Day - that comes on October 12. It's one holiday I never forget. It's my dad's birthday (his middle name is Columbus, btw). Growing up, we always had off from school, and his union contract at TWA gave them their birthday off as a holiday, so we were always home together.

    Re: Columbus Day Weekend.

    I might be out Saturday. I want to try to get out earlier to catch some departure shots, but I'm not a morning person and unless they're departing on the 4s it's really a waste. If I end up heading to LI anyway, I might do the same I did last time, and do some afternoon spotting from about 3pm on.

    Re: Columbus Day Weekend.

    I was thinking of trying Planeview park this weekend, but if most people are heading to JFK then I just might have to rearrange my plans. Anything good scheduled in this weekend, Saturday or Sunday?

    Hmm, I actually hadn't thought of hitting LGA; I haven't been there in a few months. Are any of the US special schemes scheduled to hit LGA Saturday?

    Actually, disregard; I confused the numbers for Pink Delta and Habitat; it's Pink Delta that'll be in this weekend, per this post: http://nycaviation.com/forum/viewtop...p=68197#p68197

    I'd like to catch Pink Delta with the new logo, since I've already caught her with the old one a couple of times.

    Re: Columbus Day Weekend.

    I got yet another terrible picture of Pink Delta today. It got foggy about 30 minutes before she landed. In the middle of the afternoon. RVR greater than 6000 my ass. I've caught her three times and yet to have a decent pic to show for it. :(

    I shall have to try again tomorrow...
