    Hi CathayA340,

    Yea its ICAO/IATA FTTJ/NDJ I would think the flight originated somewhere in Chad. I don't know where though. They have a VIP MD-87 that came to the UNGA a few years back but hasn't been back since.

    Back at home at last...

    Had a great time spotting around JFK with all the local (and not so local) photographers. My score for the UN traffic was quite good, while I missed some good ones due to being ill placed or too late for it. Nevermind, maybe next year. Being my first ever visit to JFK, regular traffic was also of interest and I managed to get quite decent photos on this subjects too.

    My personal highlights:





    Thanks for the company at Panera, the Mounds, etc .. Nice to know you all, see you soon guys!

    Cheers

    I have never been hassled at SWF, even when I have parked myself on the side of the road for several hours waiting on a departure. Lots of locals come out to watch the planes up there, and if I run into one, I always chat them up. Usually they learn something and it makes them less suspicious of me. The airport is far less militarized now than it used to be, so MP's aren't really a concern as long as you stay away from the ANGB area. I actually feel more comfortable spotting on-property there than I do spotting from the few off-airport spots there are.
    For that TU-154 shot, I felt it was best to approach the guard in the shack instead of just walking up to the gate and grabbing my shots. He was totally cool with it.

    In terms of being hassled, Saturday morning was rough. After that, things seemed to settle down.

    To add on to what Ben shared.
    I have been shooting SWF since 2002. Its actually the airport I enjoy visiting the most in the area. I have flown myself in there many times and also have shot there countless times over the years. Its small airport with a laid back relatively low level of hostility and aggression towards people watching/ photographing planes. SWF is a fun airport to shoot at.

    My general "Mantra" carries over. Don't make a spectacle out of ones self, for an out-of-towner behave accordingly, respect Police AND Security (Most importantly yourself). Please consider a few of us (I think) have been shooting there for many years well before and will even after while others come and go.

    Hi Ron,
    Before Colombia got the BBJ do you ever recall seeing the FAC 707-300 or the F-28 they have fly into LGA in years past?

    Senga saw the F-28 here once in the mid 1990's or so not able to get a photo. The 767 has been here once or twice and I think this was my third or 4th time seeing the BBJ including 1 arrival right in the middle of Kids Day a few years ago.

    Totally agree. That one time I was stopped was because I was taking pics through the fence by the south end where at that time they had a hangar for the evac copters!! That was back in the 90s.
    I loved sitting up on the road that parallels the runways and watching the aircraft, especially the C-5s, land and depart!!

    Does anyone have any info on when President Rouhani is leaving New York? If possible I'd like to try and get a shot of his A340 leaving Andrews. Thanks to all the NYCAviation guys I met up with last Saturday (Jason, Ben, William) for helping me out. A rough incident with PAPD and the fact that I couldn't find a single hotel room on all of Long Island sent me home for the night, but I will hopefully be back up soon!

    He is right there was no hotel available last weekend. If I were him I would've slept in the car.
