    Looks like the parking rules are already in effect, since it's departed JFK and is now inbound Stewart.

    Will there still be a lot of specials inbound next Saturday and Sunday, or are they expected to arrive ahead of the general debate? I was planning on heading down next Sunday, but don't want to head down if most are coming this weekend.

    Forecasts are looking like north winds... So can we expect the 4s to be pretty heavily used? That configuration doesn't exactly favor photos does it?

    Oh, right; I'm primarily a reader, so I don't necessarily think about photo locations or lighting. Though I believe in north winds, the 31s are used more often than the 4s anyway.

    Another list reports the Namibia F7X is at Dulles. Time to stay woke. A lot of leaders will do meetings pre or post in Washington, so there might be some stuff kicking around the Northeast before next week begins.

    Unrelated, there was a coup in Burkina Faso this week, so that particular 727 is probably doubtful for this year's edition.

    With the Pope addressing the GA on Friday would some heads of state come in early? And i believe TFRs in effect from Thursday through Saturday morning till he leaves!! And it looks like he will be doing the POTUS travel mode by using a helicopter to fly from JFK to Downtown Heliport!! Wonder if they will utilize the HMX-1 helos or did they fly in his Papal AW139 which is actually flown by the Italian AF!! Now THAT would be cool!!

    First 4L/22R has to open. It's been closed since last spring for replacement. Reopening is officially scheduled for Tuesday morning, though that could slip a bit.
