    JFK 5/25/14 - Good Bye to "Boxing Kangoroo"....

    Today Qantas 744 VH-OJU (Lord Howe Island) came without "Boxing Kangaroo":





    "Boxing Kangaroo" - was very special to me, because of this airplane I was introduced about special/rare planes late last summer by some fellow spotters @ mounds and I got instantly addicted to this hobby.

    It was nice to meet today afternoon a group of spotters @ mounds...Bob from CT, Manny...

    Another special from today - World Cup 2014 Brasil:





    That's all I've edited from today....

    I hope some other guys that were @ mounds will share their photos from today.

    Will definitely miss the Roo. She was also one of my first specials. But hey, it just means another hull free for a new design altogether!

    Nice catch on the Emirates special. Surprised that boxing kangaroo lasted as long as it did.

    I saw that before "kangaroo", VH-OJU was also an "One World" special...I do hope Qantas will come up with something new on this one.

    Did edit some more pics from yesterday afternoon. Nothing special, just some new reg #'s for me.













    got much better NY Jets JetBlue:

    VH-OEJ will soon be sporting new decals for the 2014 Australian Football team for the World Cup. I've already seen the tail, and it is nice. In a similar vein to the boxing roo. I have heard some talk that she will be limited to the SYD-SCL routes, with a tag onto Brazil for a time, but that is purely unofficial.
