    My first spotting around JFK 7-16-13

    Using NYC Aviation maps I gave it a shot last night. It seemed like the Heavies were landing and departing away from me. Harder than I thought, perhaps early morning (pre dawn) would have less traffic. I have a lot to learn but I will be back.

    I guess I am not allowed to post pics. How do I delete this whole thing?

    Your choices are to simply copy and paste from Flickr... it has a FORUM option... or to simply use the JPG link and surround it in img tags like I did... You are welcome to EDIT your post whenever you want.

    Welcome aboard, Michael, those are some nice shots you've got there! For me, evening is the best time to spot at JFK since there are so many international heavies arriving at that time. Morning has a bit of a slower pace but also a very different type of traffic. There is a lot of South American traffic early in the morning, while the Asian carriers start to arrive later in the morning. Evening brings the most diversity by far though. Looking froward to seeing more of your work.

    Welcome! Great shots! As stated already, use the forum options, as regular HTML code will not work on the forums.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the help Manny! Thanks for the welcome everybody. I will be back again and hopefully catch those incoming flights in that Costco/Burger King Area. I looked for the Mounds but must have missed it. Was it behind a park?

    The Mounds is located behind a school. Until you're within half a block or so you can't really tell anything is back there. Beware of the bugs. There are lots of mosquitoes and, if you go up on the mound itself, ticks. Be sure to bring bug spray and to wear long pants if you want to go up on the hill. Many of us have been spotting from the field this summer, just be sure to stay clear of the soccer players. Anywhere along the far edge parallel the parking area should be good and in the afternoon there is a little bit of shade.

    I think you had the right idea for posting your photos from Flickr, you just need to click the BBCode button at the bottom to format it properly for the forums here. Do that and you can copy and paste the code from the box, just like you did.

    Well done Michael !!!
    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!
