    Stunning shots especially the detail on the CRJ-700 tail and the SWA turning into Rwy 13 arrival.

    Great shots Eric! Your SWA 73 banking turn is impressive. The 13 approach was fun spotting yesterday. Reminded me a little of the old Kai Tak airport approach.

    I was surprised to see that the new AA tail colors and eagle logo on the CRJ are decals and not painted on. That livery is one that needs to be viewed up close to truly appreciate it. Eric captured it well with his detail shot. I still have to process mine from Kids Day.

    No mention of the Trump B757 nearby. Evidently, he stores it at LGA. Its last listed flight was a while ago from DCA. Curious if the Kids' Day Area is used as parking for autos or to store aircraft the rest of the year. Anybody know? Also noticed during the bus ride, the stump of the old Control Tower jutting out from Terminal B (CTA); looks weird without the rest of the old Tower. Why wasn't the whole building removed?

    That area is usually overnight parking for Delta & American who have more overnight aircraft than gates. This way they can depart the first bank of flights, and get the second bank ready while the "third" bank of flights is still in the air inbound to LGA.

    Ref Trumps 757 Mr Trump has been using LGA as his base for his 727 and now 757 for over 20 years. As far as the former FAA Tower the base or stump as you saw is part of the D Concourse used by American Airlines, and due to the architecture of the concourse it would be impossible to remove. The reason the main upper part was removed it blocked controllers in the new FAA Towers view of the intersection of LGA's two runways, so kind of a pretty good reason to remove it despite its historical value.

    Cheers

    Here are some of my static display captures from Kids Day. Still processing my 13 arrivals from the event.



    I was really impressed up close with the detail in the new Eagle icon. They use high quality decals with a high gloss finish.














    Trump was backlit from the event, but I gave it a go





    "Smiley" loving all the attention...
