    As announced on TV with a brief clip, our portion will now air this Wednesday. I'm sorry for the changes...I wish I had control over it.

    We will have coverage and the clip of it here on the website, so don't worry if you can't get to watch it!

    Guess Tiger Woods' mistresses are more important. :mrgreen:

    Even though they announced on the air that it would be on today, it seems as though they pushed it back again because two of the anchors had the day off. I'm sorry for all the delays even though it's out of our hands and we only relay was is given to us.

    HOWEVER, two NYCA members were on the show! How? they had a clip of Sully on, and both emshighway and LGA777 were standing right next to him on the ramp at LGA. What are the odds?! Good stuff guys!

    Too bad, but glad to get something positive out of it!

    Word on the street is that it will air tomorrow (Thursday) around 8:15... Any truth to this?

    I seemed like they just laughed at us. He might paint a wall if it was there? :(

    Phil, I applaud the effort, Sorry they did that to you and your great site.
    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    Before they learned what it actually was, they were asked what they were expecting, hence the paint remark. Then they see us, talk to us, and follow up later.

    Al wasn't very cheerful or friendly, but Ann loved talking to us about photography, and actually was staying to talk to us about travel and politics when it was all over....the crew had to keep telling her "Come on, let's go Ann!".

    Regardless of Al's attitude, it can still bring a lot interested people into aviation that might not otherwise have known.

    They say any publicity is good publicity, right? I agree it was a little harsh, but let's be honest, to most people going out to an airport and spending hours "looking through binoculars" and taking pictures of airplanes flying (something most people equate to hassle and headache) is not on the top of their list of things to do...
    It's not like they completely knocked the hobby, they just found it very odd (which admittedly it probably is) and which is what the segment was on. If anything you'll draw people that have the "bug" but didn't know that there were groups that actually went out to airports to spot and that other people were into this. Too bad they didn't the names right though...
