    JFK Approach Shots.... taken from New Jersey

    I am very lucky to live near Sandy Hook, NJ. It's nice to sit on my back deck with camera in hand, not the best quality but the commute home is great.







    Making the U-turn for final approach into JFK.








    I waited, and waited but finally someone went near the moon.






    Occasionally you get one with gear down, not bad considering they are still over NJ.

    Sea Bright just south of the Hook is also a great place when they are using the 13s, nice and low descending for the Canarsie VOR,nice beach too,or was before Sandy, will see in a few weeks.
    The beehive hummm of the JT9D and GE CF680C2,the thunder of the JT8D-17,the rumble of the PW1830 and the high ,thin whine of the PW 545A are all music to my ears!

    Great shots, AJ! I'm curious, what is their approximate altitude at that point?
