    You guys are the gods of the spotting world this week. Great stuff! Love it all.
    Makes me wanna rethink the standing offer I have from a friend
    for JFK ramp access. Screw that- I'm gonna see if he'll taking me out to the active. BTW,
    were you shooting from a vehicle or outside?

    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    The only way I think one can get ramp access is to get a jet ski and run out of gas near the field and walk across the ramp! Hmmmm.....I wonder whatever happened to that guy.

    I sure hope they didn't actually prosecute that guy for trying to get assistance after his machine broke down

    It looks like he plead guilty to a violation of trespassing (a far cry from the felony the PA originally charged him with) and was given a conditional discharge.

    Hey Mark, I was at the mounds for those last two heavies- Finnair and AF A380 Super. I think I saw you there. Should
    have come over and introduced myself. It was a challenging afternoon for spotting since the tower was switching back and forth between
    22L and 13L. When I got to 22L they switched back to 13. Sometimes you just can't win.

    Nice photos. The RAM in that banking turn is great. Maybe I'll see you out there some time.

    I was in the car with MA plates so I am sure you saw me. For JFK it was the first time I got to shoot the Qantas, RAM, and LOT planes so it was nice. Also here are some other pics I took from my trip this past weekend from the Empire State Building.
