    Shuttle is leaving Dulles at 930am. We should get a pass a JFK and then the landing.

    I will be at Bayswater

    Good luck everyone

    Going to Bayswater myself (heading out now). Seems like a cool group of people here, and this is pretty much a once-in-a-lifetime thing, so looking forwards to this

    According to a map in the NY POST, it was to be at about Yankee Stadium at 11:10 then loop around to JFK. Figuring the upper parking lot at Roosevelt Field would be a good viewing spot, I headed that way. While exiting the southbound Meadowbrook at Roosevelt Field, it flew directly over my head, southbound (at 11:10). Missed it by 5 minutes. Did make the upper deck in time to watch it loop on it base to 31L.

    Today was amazing. It flew directly over us at Eisenhower at about 1000'. Thank you guys for all the tips, maps, and scanner info.

    Watched it all up close at JFK, once the pomp and circumstance is done and over with I am going to head over and get up close. I've been soo excited today about this that my ankles have been showing since I got dressed.

    FML. Stuck in an office on 23rd St where my window faces an adjacent building. Didn't see anything. Very unhappy. I kept having friends text me "OMG DID YOU SEE IT?!?!?" and it just made me angrier.

    Darn. And double darn.

    We had about 75 people out at Bayswater this morning - cold, very windy - but definitely worth it!









    Yes, it was an EPIC morning!
