    AA DC-3 Flagship Detroit Visiting JFK/LGA/EWR Again

    The Flagship Detroit Foundation's Beautiful ex AA DC-3 is returning to NYC next week to make AA Station visits at JFK, LGA, and EWR.

    http://www.flagshipdetroit.org/FSD/Flag ... _DC-3.html

    Bascally this will be a repeat of last year and unfortunately the DC-3 will only be accessible to airport employees, and possibly departing passengers in the AA Concourses at JFK and EWR as last year it parked on AA gates their whereas at LGA it inside the AA Hangar. At all 3 airports a brief sightseeing flight will be offered (for AA employees) which means the 3 will make 2 landings and takeoff's from all 3 airports. I don't have a detailed schedule but will post what I know/

    Mon Oct 13th; Ferry in to JFK, I assume late afternoon arrival.
    Tues Oct 14th; JFK station visit. Will make sightseeing flight mid day and will ferry to LGA late afternoon.
    Wed Oct 15th: LGA station visit. Will make sightseeing flight mid day and will ferry to EWR late afternoon.
    Thur Oct 16th EWR station visit. Will make sightseeing flight mid day and ferry out. Here is a little more info.

    For those of you not familar with classic bird here are two of my short video's from last years visit.

    And finally a word about membership.

    http://www.flagshipdetroit.org/FSD/Join_Us.html

    The lowest price membership fee of $100 includes flying on any ferry or re-positioning flights. Anotherwords current members should be allowed on the flights from JFK-LGA and LGA-EWR. Sure is tempting isn't it ?

    AA777 (who has flown on this bird) feel free to make any additions or corrections to my information.

    Regards

    LGA777

    hi Ron, you beat me to this. I heard about this today at work but was told it was coming to EWR Tuesday night and doing the employee trips on Wed. I'll have to double check tommorow.

    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    I have some additional info on the DC-3 visit. As I type this she is enroute to JFK. Like like last time the DC-3 is trackable on Flightaware, it's the reg without the C, anotherwords N17334.

    http://flightaware.com/live/flight/N17334

    She will be parked at JFK at AA Gate 16, but will be accessible only to airline/airport employees. I had originally posted that I thought departing AA passengers might have access to the aircraft, I learned today that is not the case nor will it be at EWR. The DC-3 will remain at JFK until approx 1500 Tuesday Oct 14th when it will fly an approx 60 min r/t sightseeing flight. Plans are to depart JFK to ferry to LGA between 1630-1730. At LGA the aircraft will go immediatly inside one of AA's hangars.

    On Wednesday Oct 15th she is schedled to depart LGA around 1500 for an approx 1 hour sightseeing flight, then will probably depart for the ferry to EWR around 1630-1730.

    On Thursday Oct 16th same schedule for EWR as the past two days at JFK/LGA.

    I hope to see some nice shots of this classic airliner on her second NYC visit since restoration.

    Cheers

    looks like she landed on the 31s, i remember flying a freightdog trip in the 3 back in 94,it was about 10 pm,when we arrived via the Canarsie approach,and i wondered what the neighbors beneath me thought about the gentle rumble,rumble overhead,as we descended over South Ozone Park,13L bound, probably didn't even give it a second thought,though one guy jumped in his truck,and drove to the airport when he saw us come over,to check out our tall ship,ok enough,i will stop now.
    The beehive hummm of the JT9D and GE CF680C2,the thunder of the JT8D-17,the rumble of the PW1830 and the high ,thin whine of the PW 545A are all music to my ears!

    Ron, thanks for the last post.

    I happend to swing by the airport at the last minute and was pleasantly reminded that she was inbound.


    got a few shots, will try to upload later.
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.
