    Mystery B744 Seen on Sept. 22

    I was spotting at Brighton Beach on Sept. 22 and made only visual contact with a B744 heading for a 13L arrival. I never saw these markings before and saw no flag. The tail fin was white with a red spot in the center. The lettering was indistinct. It might have been a cargo flight or even a diplomatic aircraft. Does anybody have any idea what it could be? It is not shown on Passur, so I believe it was a military flight.

    We had a group (8 to 10 of us) hanging around watching them load up, nobody really bothered us. A little before 4pm, someone with a "Staff" shirt told us to head toward the bus as the ramp had to be cleared by 4, but with the size of the lines still waiting to board the open airliners we knew that wasn't going to happen, and she walked away without another word to us. We even had a guy in a Port SUV pull up, and rather than chase us to the bus, he started asking about A.net and other aviation web sites, said he takes photos too. The plane departed around 4:20, and we were on just about the last set of buses, there were only a handful of visitors still on the ramp when we left after getting the photos.

    I reported the Cedarjet when it was still with Approach. I forget which runway the Jordanian landed on. These reports were done from my office as I was listening to the LiveATC stream and calculating the maximum per hour capacity of the B58 stop at Adams and Joralemon.

    Great photos from all, really enjoyed the whole thread. The F-22 refueling was just icing on the cake. Whanks to Woz for pointing me in the right direction :-)
