    Those turbine Bonanza's are really cool airplanes. I like them alot performance wise. However, they look like a Bonanza crashed into the ass end of a PC12 standing still with that long nose.

    I saw (today around 2pm) a B-722 Super Advanced sitting where Trump's jet usually does. It has a dark blue tail with a huge, white "N". Does anyone know who this jet belongs to?

    That 727 belongs to Peter Nygard, some sort of fashion designer. She is a frequent visitor to LGA.

    Unless Nygard has a second plane, I don't think that's it. There's a really big uppercase "N" on the tail. It almost looks like the font for Northeastern Airlines.

    I should also state that I didn't get to see the fuselage. Only the tail and winglets,

    Trump just made a very nice landing on runway 4 and is back home. Great to see it finally land from the tower.

    727s still rule :D
    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!

    They always will. Three engines tail mounted and a wing that comes apart in so many way that transformers are left saying...."WTF?" I love that airplane. It is a shame I was born about a decade late. I'd loved to have at least sad sideways in those things.
