    Has anyone ever successfully completed a HoBe-Inwood dash? Sounds impossible.

    we've done the Bayswater to HoBe dash several times. my favorite is still HoBe to Mounds in less the 8 minutes and you get to the top of the mounds just as the plane you want is about to pass by but you still get a great shot.
    It's hard to take chances but sometimes it's better if you do

    HoBe to Bayswater is where the boys are separated from the men!

    Great stuff.,.. glad you all caught it. I was almost certain they wouldn't get 22R as there were nothing but Jumbo, Heavy and Super taking off on it right before it came in.

    Now how in the hell can anyone get from Howard Bitch to the Mounds in 8 minutes. All those lights on Cross Bay make sure that's not possible(for me). Anybody here using one of those red light changers you can get off the Net?

    lol, I agree, that doesn't seem possible. Most of the time on Rockaway Tpke now, it takes 10 minutes just to get from Costco to Brookville Blvd. Sandy really screwed up the traffic patterns here.

    but it did happen. JFK was landing 13R so we shooting in Howard Beach, plane we wanted was cleared for 13R approach and then was changed to 22L and we bolted in a 3 car caravan to the mounds.

    Since the Sandy the trip time from Costco to the Mounds is 10 mins? Sounds like Sandy helped the traffic patterns!! haha!! Last time I was at Costco it took me 10 mins just to wait for traffic to clear so I could get out of the lot.

    It was for Wunala and, if I remember correctly, ERIC was the lead car. If anybody asks the other two were pursuing him for a citizen's arrest.
