    Hi Jeff.. Looking forward to perhaps meeting you in the field... but just one aside here - FRG is a fine airport to visit - bizjets, helicopters, warbirds, and very occasional blimp or airliner, but re-positioning UN flights are decidedly uncommon.

    Best Regards,
    Tom

    There is also a UAE A340-300 (albino) parked between 13L/31R and Rockaway Blvd.. tucked away. Its been here before though and quite possibly not UN linked.

    If I'm not mistaken, I saw one of the white + silver ring Qatar Amiri Flight A330s at JFK last week.
    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.
    I trust you are not in too much distress. —Captain Eric Moody, British Airways Flight 9

    Saw it today, really nice looking... but horrible place to shoot it, even if you shoot through the fence, you have ramp warts all over the place

    Here are my first catches for UN Week 2011





    Qatar sunk in on 22L I think just as they switched runway configurations.

    Where did you shoot the Kuwaiti from, Mark? I was over at Firestone with Luke, looks like we had a similar view of it.

    I was in the Costco parking lot right across from Panera. Then after words, Manny, Eric and Scott showed up as well as the clouds. Headed over to the mounds for a few shots, but not in time to catch the Qatar.

    Any ETA on The President on Monday? I saw on CNN that he has a 10:30AM news conference in the White House Rose Garden.

    SGB 6402 "Sky King 6402" is a Boeing 737-400 that has just taken off from Havana, Cuba enroute to KJFK.....possibly not UN related. He is overhead Marathon Key Florida now at 10:15 Eastern Time. Arrival into JFK is planned for 12:30(ish) Eastern Time. Could be N916SK???

    That's it for now....

    Manny - ahh haa. Thanks for that! I did not see anything filed into JFK / HPN or SWF today of note......most will come in "invisible" to flight trackers though, so no telling what came in today, really!

    Wishing I was out east!!!
