    HPN is a gateway airport for DCA - how is it not for New York?

    Better weather today, and another good group of spotters out again. They were using 4L/R all morning, but nothing UN related really came in. Eventually they switched to the 13/22 split, and we started to see some action.

    Russian IL-96, first good shots I've gotten of one - a year or two ago, we were over at Bayswater when he went off on 31L, and I got a distant, heat-hazed shot...today was much better.




    Qatar Amiri Flight A345 (they also had an A330 arrive this afternoon)


    An MEA A330 came in as well - I had just left The Mounds to catch Air Force 1 at Bayswater, and I saw it fly over my head as I was turning onto Brookville Blvd. I'm sure the guys still at The Mounds caught it.

    Air Force 1 arriving.




    After a short stay, they departed (for SWF, I believe) Without POTUS on board, they didn't take a priority departure, instead joining the line to go off 22R (and back-lit shots from Bayswater. )




    While waiting for the VC-25 to depart, we had this German Air Force A340 arrive.

    They can only spread the TSA so thin? Not sure why it is, but that was the official word from the TSA.

    It was great weekend to spend spotting and share stories. I'll post a quick one before heading to work.

    First time for "spotting" AF1

    So where did VC-25 go after JFK? It seems she is at Westover AFB :-)

    Great......no, awesome shots to all. Wishing, again, that I was out east this week. Ahhh well, maybe later this year.
    Air Force 1 comes to Chicago later this week. There has been a C-17 adjacent to our hangar for 2 days now. Keep the nice pictures flowing.

    That German A340 Moose. Was that around 3-4 PM yesterday? We were doing some lawn spotting ;)
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    No Moose, it is your time LOL.. Stole the data from your EXIF so your camera's date is suspect!

    BTW, mine shows 3:58PM

    I think we saw it. Saw the plane right overhead but markings were tough to catch.

    Your camera data appears to be fine as well. Mario is an Optometrist...maybe you should call him for an appointment.
