    UN week is coming!

    And no thread yet? Or am I just missing it?

    When is the consensus on when the notables should start arriving? I'm hearing the weekend of the 23rd, but isnt that a little late?

    Who still has 'exotics' in use like IL62, 707, Tupo's, SP's, ect?

    Thanks!

    I was watching the news and the President is scheduled to arrive and attend the UN meeting Sept 19-21.

    According to the UN website here is the agenda:
    Meetings of the 66th Session

    I was looking at that as well, Mark. I suspect the big arrival weekend will be Sept. 17-18, with POTUS arriving Monday or Tuesday.

    I can't wait. My biggest desire is for a Russian Tu or Il, any of them and for some 707 action all else will just be icing on the cake...

    We've had all of those in the past few years Manny, and I suspect we'll see more this year. Unfortunately, one that we won't see this year:



    It was destroyed in fighting at the Tripoli airport a week or so ago. The matching A340 is still in one piece, but I'm not expecting that back this way any time soon. Glad I shot them when I had the chance!

    I'll remind you about it every UN Week until I'm too old to remember! I should really be blaming my own bad luck, but it's so much easier (and entertaining) to blame you and Justin

    A hooker? Please let it be a hooker!!

    Russia sounds awesome. I was thinking about going there last year, but didn't want to go alone.

    One word... Group trip to MAKS 2012

    Moose, you're killing me with that one :-( Very sad indeed. Especially seeing it on the Nat Geo special on UN week (well, secret service, but it covered UN week)

    That is one visitor I am okay without seeing, I'll have front row seats to every arrival this year. Score!

    Here's a look inside the A340, and a slideshow.

    Moose, with the cloudy sky you would have been better off erasing the images as everyone knows it will never get on Jetphotos or Airliners.net.... Why did you bother? You can still delete it if you are "BROKEN UP" about that airframe! I am just saying!!!!
    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".
