    Here are a few mediocre shots. Only had the G11 with me today. Fred will have the good stuff later I'm sure of it. ;)
    Word is, it will depart sometime on Sunday.

    F/A-18A+ model from Fort Worth, TX

    Nice, John! It's probably just a training mission. They have to get a certain amount of hours/sorties each month. If the pilot has friends/family in the area, or just wants a weekend in NY, they check out a jet, get a couple of hops in, and spend the weekend.

    Yes, he came in on 14. I was sitting at my desk and heard a distinct roar, it took a second to realize what that screaming sound was, only a second. I ran outside to see him almost overhead, heading towards the south side of the tower. He passed the tower and then headed North, maybe 1/4 mile past Conklin. He then made a hard left turn so that he was flying on his side and made a wide sweeping turn to align himself with runway 14. A few seconds later he landed. I debated for a second if I had the time to run back in and get my camera, instead I just watched come in, which was nice for a change as I see most exciting things through the viewfinder on my camera.

    Nice shots John, here are a few that I took from the other side of the fence:




    and one of the Equine plane that came in on Wednesday:



    Unfortunately, I do not have access to the other side of the fence. I tried taking a few night shots, they didn't come out very well. The plane was in a dark spot so it was difficult to focus on.

    Yup Joe, that's me. Embarrassed to be seen without the 7D, but I didn't expect to shoot anything today with the crappy skies out. That monopod helped with the slow shutter speed on that lil camera. Lol!
