    she'll just be overflying but with the clear skies we should get to see her. Get out the big glass.

    The track shown looks like it will be far south of JFK area or LI / NYC for that matter...

    The track is from Boston down to Sea Isle City near Cape May then down to Norfolk, VA, so I would say that's a direct flight over LI, unless the J55 flight track is too far east.

    J55 overflies the Hampton VORTAC (which is above Westhampton Beach on L.I.). So you'd have to go pretty far East to see this flight.

    Any idea why it's doing such a long flight, other than just testing?

    Link from Flightblogger explains it. http://www.flightglobal.com/blogs/fl...y-to-chec.html

    They did a flight the other day with ZA003 I think for about 13 hours. It looks a bit far east for NYC but it is within NYC Aviation membership coverage. Maybe someone will be lucky and have a chance to see it.
