    Today will be a good day it seems from a very brief scan of what's crossing the Atlantic and or over Canada and looks to be headed for our region...

    Mauritania BBJ:

    Egyptian A340-200:

    VP-CAL 777-200LR:

    Venezuela A319 went to SWF:

    Seeing a photo of the Ceiba Intercontinental 767-300 at EWR...

    Some A310 out of the London area airports headed our way... I imagine HZ-NSA:

    Copying here to keep it on the bottom page for easier reloading:

    For housekeeping, I'll be putting any updates for today in this response.


    1107L: Cuba Il-96 [CUB102/CU-T1250] over North Carolina; ETA at JFK about 1150. No info on the onward. [Departing 1408 as CUB106; heading NE at 7K, hoping Stewart. Dropped off track, but was the same SWF routing as all the others]
    1129L: Egypt A342 [EGY1/SU-GGG] is right behind one of the Swissairs, ETA around 1420.
    1139L: Global ZS-OAK about to depart 31L. Unknown if it's operating for a government, but slightly exotic nonetheless. [Looks like the repo went to Stewart]
    1145L: Mauritania BBJ [MRT1/5T-CLC] just off the Azores. [Looks like a 1700ish arrival, might get held up if there's a Pope hold] [Final 22L 1701]
    1147L: Angola 2, a Falcon 7, on final 31R [VQ-BLP, thanks to Ben for the photo confirmation] [Repo SWF, dep 1345ish]
    1150: Cuba on final 31R
    1212: TJK, RTFThread!
    1218: Switch to the 13s upcoming.
    1224: Vietnam 772 [HVN1/VN-A143] over Suffolk County, on the ground in 20 minutes. [Final 13R, 1239] [1458: Departing 13L - Went to Westover/CEF]
    1234: VP-CAL (thanks, Gordon) ETA around 1845. It's right behind the late Iberia. Turkmenistan similar, probably in the mid-1800 hour.
    1250: A345 out of Doha [answers on a postcard, but let's assume A7-HHH] over Turkey, if it's headed here, ETA 2200ish. Also a 744 just out of Brunei [same deal, V8-ALI assumed]. Will have to make a stop, and it's really far away.
    1314: Saudi 772 [SVA7239/HZ-AKF] inbound ETA 1405 [filed back out to Saudi]
    1354: Saudi BBJ2 opf Lebanon [LEB1/HZ-HR5] inbound ETA 1530. [1443 update: Appears to be on a more EWR course than JFK] [1530: Arrived EWR 11]
    1415: Egypt final 4R. This 13s/4R split has to be annoying. And Saudi is on final 13R.
    1420: Guys, let's keep this thread tidy - edit one post to give updates. A zillion responses every 3 minutes makes this very tough to follow.
    1629: AAL9420 [B772/N776AN] airborne with the Pope. ETA around 1700. [1703 - Final 13R, calling SHEPHERD 1 Heavy]
    1631: Chile 763 [FACH1/985] over Ecuador, ETA 2200ish.
    1635: Iran 343 [MRJ2/EP-AJA] has popped up east of Boston; ETA probably 1715-1730. [Final 22L 1722]
    Evening wrapup - thanks to everyone who posted alerts and photos. UAE(Dubai) BBJ2 A6-HEH arrived 2105, departed 2310. Nigeria BBJ arrived 2210 (reposition Dover). Chile arrived 2230. Turkish 332 arrived 2245ish. Turkmenistan and Iran both departed in the early half of the 2100 hour. Turkmenistan to SWF, Iran believed to be Andrews. Mauritania is also out, think to Stewart. From another list, the Uganda from last night is at DOV. VP-CAL went to Newark.
    2330: Amiri/QAF8 is the A310 (A7-AFE) that came out of the London area.
    Looks like I missed the Mali BBJ (TZ-PRM). Repo to HPN.

    Does all this activity during the week mean the weekend will be lack-luster? The ONLY day I can be out is Sunday - I'm pretty certain at this point that I'm not going to see anything worth writing home about...

    I was planning, and still am, to be out Sat-Tues. It is looking like it may be light on the VIP traffic, but I'm hoping there will still be some planes trickling in.

    It's a 13/4 split. I'm at HoBe as they're using 13r for landings.
    Hoping to get lucky but Egypt 1 just checked in for 4r

    It seems like everything is coming in before the weekend. How does the spotting look this weekend, or will most of the VIPs be here before then?

    I think a lot are here for Friday (tomorrow) for the Pope. Inconsiderate bastards should know some of us are at work!

    I'd say there are still plenty of UN visitors yet to come.
    It's hard to take chances but sometimes it's better if you do
