    JFK 8/21 Review (3 Specials inside, 12 pics)

    I decided to take advantage of the beautiful summer day and catch 3 special visitors. When I arrived at the mounds, the white curtain was gone and a another spotter was also there. During the 4 hours i stayed at the Mounds, we had 3 go arounds. The first one involved a Delta 763 being too high on final, the other two were B6 A320s that went around due to traffic on the runway. During these 3 go-arounds, they were using the VOR DME approach to runway 22L and departing 22R. Overall a great day of spotting and hope you enjoy.

    Nice catches, Luke.

    Incidentally Air Comet and Air Pullmantur have been operating to JFK every Wednesday and Thursday since the end of June. I thought it was only a two week charter flight but it seems like it has lasted. I can't tell when it will end since the flight doesn't show up on the schedules.
