    JFK 03/12/2012 A Special Surprise Visitor

    I actually started to get bored and decided to go to KLGA for some change of scenery and am I glad I was lazy to leave.

    from Bradley?



    31R





    31L



    13L (it's been a while)



    Oh yeah, and that funny looking A340 came in again

    "RSD008 Heavy"







    And she left as quickly and quietly as she came in... completely unannounced. Used same callsign to depart: "RSD008 Heavy"
    Sorry for the seriously back-lit and heavily cropped image... I was about 1/4 mile away



    I started to head to Bayswater for the departure but Clearance Delivery was debating a RWY change so I stayed around just in case. Well, they eventually got 13R for departure and I never thought I would make it to Bayswater given the distance and traffic. Was I wrong. The line for departure was very long and even as efficient as JFK is, they still took a while, especially delaying some departures for 22R arrivals! UGH! I think I would have made it but... oh well, next time

    It's hard to take chances but sometimes it's better if you do

    Moose? ??

    Anyway, can someone help me figure out the first one? "VP-CSI" - NO RECORD of it that I can find anywhere. Could be Cayman Islands or Falklands... but Falklands should be VP-F** not VP-C** It came in from Bradley ... no callsign, used "Victor Papa Charlie" as identifier.

    I asked some of my friends at Connecticut Plane Spotters if they knew anything about CP-CSI. Could have been getting maintenance at the Bombardier facility at BDL.

    Nice stuff! Glad somebody caught that Russian bird. I saw its tail taxiing to 13R as my flight was taxiing into Terminal 8.

    Unlike Manny (whom I haven't met yet, am looking forward to that) I was luckily on the correct side of that 96. I was out in Bayswater alone and with no idea that it was in town, and was gobsmacked when I saw it take off. I was actually there to catch the Transaero 773, which didn't show up, but I'm not complaining - I got the more interesting Russian by far.
