    Made it to LGA ... finally

    Hi guys!

    I finally had a chance to do some spotting in NYC. My wife was in town for a conference - I tagged along and had Friday 9/28 (the day before kids day) to go and find some planes

    I decided to spend the day at LGA because it seemed much easier to get to good spots by public transport. I would have liked to make this post earlier but it took this long before I had time to give to the pictrues.

    I was hoping to get some AM shots of 22 arrivals, but they were running the expressway visual to 31 so off to shea stadium I went on the 7.

    The worlds's fair marina was great. It also gave me a new respect for you guys that get those bank shots! For me, the weather was marginal, I was there a little early in the day for 31 (had to leave around 2:30) and I was at the limit of my equipment.

    Most of my bank attempts and landing shots with the GWB in the background are at 100% crops.

    Here goes anyway!

    Nice light for AC

    Spirit with GWB

    A little crossing traffic

    And now for some sad attempts at banks!

    Overall I had a great time! Thanks to Phil and the folks at this site for the spotting maps!

    Hey Dan, some nice shots there...I don't recall seeing too many from here with the GWB in the background.
