    JFK - Saturday 2/22 - Planning and (Eventually) Pictures

    Hey, guys!

    I hope to get out and do some shooting tomorrow, for the first time since UN week. I always like running into you guys, and it happens way too often that it turns out a bunch of us were out, but in different locations. I figured I'd just throw a heads up here and see who plans to be around and make a place-holder thread for my images!!

    Hopefully I'll be out most of the day! Here's my plan:

    If runway 31: HoBe departures in the morning, Panera arrivals in the afternoon.
    If runway 22: Bayswater departures in the morning, Mounds in the afternoon. (This is what it looks like right now, based on forecast)
    If runway 04: North Woodmere in the morning, Bayswater in the afternoon.
    If runway 13: The Location Which Is Not To Be Named Where We Always Get In "Trouble".

    (I wish we could tag/mention people on this forum...anyway to activate that, Phil? I know it's possible on the other vBulletin forum I am part of, but I don't know if it's a simple addition or not).

    Look like it will be a pretty decent day, wx wise...so I'm going to try to head out (for the first time since UN, as well) and hit the Mounds for a bit in the afternoon.

    Heading out now. When they do a 22/31KE split like this, where will Emirates and South African go for departure?

    Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I always thought they would use 31KE.

    Today was a nice day for spotting. All day long arrivals on 22L. Some pictures I took today:









    I went shortly to Bayswaters for departures - RWY 4:



    Then I drove to mounds - today came a bunch of guys









    Nothing special, just a day spent in a fresh air and some new registrations for me.

    Nice seeing everybody out there! I'm still looking through mine, though some are as crisp as you can get! What a great shooting day!
    Probably the youngest spotter ever to walk up the face of the mounds.
