    Can't wait to see Smiley Jack (Retro Livery) N742PS. He's been seen this week flying between DCA and LGA. Am hoping for an AAL 738 with the new livery but from my recent visits to both LGA and to JFK, we will see the old livery. Don't forget to visit the Marine Air Terminal interior; it is quite impressive. A mini-museum of aviation in itself. Photographers welcome. Hoping UAL participates and those great Geico Skytypers.

    AA doesn't bring the A319 to New York, so I doubt they would fly one in special for Kids Day. And don't expect to see anything from the military given the current budget situation. There has been virtually no military participation at events since April.

    BTW, has anyone heard if the American Airpower Museum or the Geico Skytypers will be sending any of their aircraft this weekend ? Also, does the Kiwanis Club or LaGuardia Airport have an official link or flyer for the event ? A couple of friends are interested in taking their kids on Saturday and I wanted to send a link to them about it.

    Weather looks promising. Wish for a SWA B737 or a UAL B737, but I doubt it. It doesn't hurt to dream!

    They said the C-47 was down for maintenance, but it flew over my house today so they might have been testing it out or probably flying it down to NJ for some maintenance. See you guys around noon tomorrow !

    US Airways PSA "Smiley Jack" still up at Logan as of 5 AM this morning; hoping she ferries back to LGA in time. Weather looks promising. Any word about the Skytypers? Can't rely on Flight Aware. While the PSA A319 was listed as being up at Logan, she was in reality here at LGA.
