    Kevin,

    All the information you need for spotting at JFK is nicely laid out in the spotting guides link above. You must have a car and prepare to shuttle between the different spotting locations because JFK Tower is notorious for changing ops with the slight change of winds and just when they see that one aircraft you want is on final. It's there way of saying I got you.

    You will be able to enjoy some of what JFK has to offer but be aware it is not exactly easy or great to spot at JFK via public transport. It's doable but it can be painful.

    Kevin, if you're really, really nice, somebody around here may offer to chauffeur you around. It never hurts to ask if someone else will be out and can drive you around (offer a few beers in return, and you're sure to get a yes). And if I'm around the weekend you're here, maybe it will even be me (but I don't get out as often as I'd like. Just ask Manny, we've only met in person twice...).

    Where are you joining us from? What's your usual local airport?

    EDIT: Just figured out what your username means. D'oh!

    Thanks Anitix
    If you or anyone is about that week I would be very grateful if you could show me around and Im sure that I would be able to smuggle out some of my countries famous beverage ,Its not true what hear about us Scots we have been known to buy a round of beer when it comes to our turn
    I would probably be looking at either Saturday the 25 or Sunday the 26Th as I fly home on the 29th if anyone is free either days let me know as I haven't made any solid plans for our trip to NY (might even be persuaded to by Lunch )

    Many thanks Kevin
