    Charter JAL 787 in NYC Area

    Did anyone happen to catch and take pictures of a reported JAL 787, that was chartered by NY Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka?

    Todays' NY Post has a photo supposedly of that aircraft. I am trying to get its tail #. I do have a little info. It arrived late from NRT due to snow conditions in Japan. The flight # JAL 8808. I tried to see it over my house but the ceiling was prohibitive. I tracked it and saw that it arrived on Rwy 22L about 1630 on Sun. Feb.9. I have no idea when it returned to NRT, Hope this helps.

    Apparently Tanaka paid Japan Airlines $195,000 to charter their Boeing 787 jet from NRT to JFK for his party of 5 and pet dog !
