    JFK 10/25/13 My spotting fail with FDNY! (Got lucky)

    So while trying to catch FDNY, I tried looking for AF1...Apparently an Invisible plane... I took a ride around the terminal to see lan 787, jetblue 321, and a couple other things... on my way back to cosco... of course theres crazy traffic on brookville and rockaway so i get a backlit shot! great...I don't know why i thought of this...but I remembered she was coming from DR so she had to go to t4! I rushed over there! Thanks to my dad for letting me stay till dusk!


    THE FAIL! TRIED SAVING IT! LOL

    THEN I GOT LUCKY!

    Nice work Jared! Word of caution, be careful posting certain photo's. It's great to have them for your personal collection but I think it's another thing to display them for everyone to see. That's when you'll get a bunch on inquires. BTW during UN Week I did get stopped at that location.

    Nice work, Jared...AF1 can be tough to spot on the ground, even if you know where they park her. Only time I've photographed it on the ground was when 31L was closed, and they used an alternate runway/parking location.

    Thanks William and moose!
    And Moose, those were the good old days...the 31L closure. Good times!
    Sometimes you get lucky, what can you do.
