    Was sunbathing Fri. PM at Coney Beach, Sept. 20, suddenly, heard a loud roar. Saw an Osprey V-22 accompanied by 2 US helicopters. Couldn't see the liveries as the sun was glaring. Was this a dry-run for Air Force One on Sept. 23? The aircraft were flying along the coast, east to west then turned towards Manhattan. I guess I was the only 1 to see this.

    Yes, thanks great work. Very exciting to see a new livery. Anybody see Air Force One? I dozed-off Monday and missed it. Did she arrive JFK on Rwy 31R. What time. Is she staying overnight or returned to Andrews?

    Sergio that last shot is awesome! Apparently they "escorted" about 3 GA aircraft out of several areas yesterday.

    It was probably an HMX-1 training run. They use V-22's now instead of CH-46's.

    Yes, it was the rehearsal, which always takes place 2 or 3 days before the President arrives. HMX-1 did the full Presidential landing, with 2 MV-22s landing and shutting down (andthe third MV-22 peeling off) followed by the 2 VH-3Ds. Everything then spooled up and departed, and all 3 MV-22s returned again to land, sat for a couple of minutes, and then left. The choreography is a little different now because the MV-22s travel perpendicular to the long axis of the rotors instead of the VH-46s, which travel along the rotor axis.

    Just a little "other side" of UN Week!! Finished my medical appts at 1 today and walked from 68/1st down to East 34 Street Heliport. With all the dignitaries still in the UN you couldnt go down a street around the UN from 53 to 34 and not see a motorcade/protection detail idling including what looked like Obamas on E42 Street between 1/2 Ave (minus The Beast of course)!! In front of one building on 2 Ave and 44 Street there were about 15 govt agents in a circle discussing something. I'm thinking it was probably pizza or Subway!! At the heliport there was one Sikorsky S-76 there that departed around 3PM and I did see a few TSA agents there. I gather they are doing the screening for the week for outbound copters and iunbound must stop at a designated airport, FRG again?
    And what AMAZING weather? Sitting by the river by the heliport the ceiling and visibilty was unlimited!! Just beautiful!! Did look like the LGA Runway 31 arrivals were coming in from the East over Manhattan then over the Harbor banking left to fly over Brooklyn/Queens!!
    Good spotting all!

    Great shots everyone. Mark - love that Air Zimbabwe 767 in front of the Triple Hangar. Proves that you don't have to have sun for a great picture. Not sure what it is about it that makes it stand out - perfect exposure, the atmosphere with the history in the background and the rainy ramp surface - exceptional
    Wanted to thank everyone for the great company over the last 5 days - I had a great time and enjoyed meeting you all. Can't wait to process my images - I left after Air Force One arrived to catch my flight home and obviously missed some great captures on Monday afternoon - would have loved the TU154. Can't imagine anyone having the balls to fly across the Atlantic in a TU154!!

    The very unfortunately callsigned ***01 is on approach for 22L. Traffic callout was for a 757.

    [EDIT: Ha! The forum censored the post. It's Foxtrot Alpha Golf 01]
    [EDIT2: It's the Argentina. I've missed it yet again.]
