    You will have a nice view the only thing that can foul you up is the smoke plumes that come out of the COVANTA incinerator. They are located right next door to Nick Falzone and the crew at N90.

    I'm thinking about planting myself somewhere near the Eisenhower Park Special Activities Building or the parking lot across the street as I have been shut out at KJFK.

    Well, the word from NASA is that Wednesday is official...but again, it all depends on the weather. Today was official at one point too...

    Wednesday still tentative. NASA will hold another weather briefing tomorrow morning.

    WASHINGTON --NASA managers, in coordination with Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum officials, tentatively selected Wednesday, April 25 as the date to ferry space shuttle Enterprise from Washington’s Dulles International Airport to New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.

    The decision was made at the conclusion of the Enterprise Ferry Flight Readiness Review (FRR) and is dependent on the outcome of a weather briefing Tuesday morning.

    A large region of low pressure dominating the east coast has made it difficult to reliably predict an acceptable day for the flight.
    No rain or wind problems currently expected Wednesday, but mostly cloudy to overcast conditions could mess things up if the clouds get too low.
    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

    I just wish they'd tell me which runway they will use at Dulles so that I can get set up to watch her leave :)

    That's the thing about water...it always wins. So does gravity. So, if you drop something heavy on something hard, it breaks. :D

    Hello,

    So, if the North proposal/plan would happen, is it true that JFK would only get the landing, no fly by? In the first post with the plan it mentions JFK getting both flyby and landing no matter what, is that not happening now?

    Thanks

    So is 31L set in stone? If the sun happens to be out the lighting will not be good in that case, nearly directly tail-on between 10 and 11. 22L lighting would be MUCH better that time of day. Perhaps some good cloud cover would be of benefit if they use the 31s.

    It shows a JFK flyby on the map as well. Hmm.
