    Basically anything and everything that flying or driving will not help to achieve a successful outcome. The bane of my aviation existence and a nightmare that keeps haunting me.


    Twelve years later and I still am getting screwed over the two below. So close so many times just to have them slip away.

    I'd have to say damn near any 727-200 is on that list for me as far as airliners go, though I'd be geeked to shoot anything mentioned so far in this thread.

    In fantasy land I'd love to get out west to catch an F-117 still in the air on the military side of things.

    - Druk Air A319
    - Japan Gov't 747-400
    - Anything from Air Koryo
    - Anything from Iraqi Airways
    - Peach Air A320

    Fasil, I wouldn't forget that day...You missed not only "Spirit Of Hong Kong" but Kallita with yellow DHL tail too(you remember?)...Spotting...sometimes is a mix of joy and frustration...And I caught finally "Spirit Of Hong Kong just a few months later...But you could consider yourself lucky because you got Etihad A340 F1...some here still waiting for that one....

    Anything Air Kroyo. I've seen lots of 747SPs but never gotten a good photo...I'd give a LOT to get an L1011.

    They also visit BDL pretty regularly to pick up helicopters from Sikorsky.

    Can't say I have a list, but I've been after a few of the Alaska special schemes. During my trips to LAX I always hope to catch one or two that I haven't shot before. Otherwise, any unique visitor that pops into JFK or any of those rare species of birds that come in during the UNGA week!

    One lady I've been after was the bronze Atlas. Last time I saw her at JFK was over two years, and I was fortunately to catch her this year departing off 22R.

    WestJets Disney Magic Plane and the USAir Arizona Cardinals a319, because they are my favorite football team.

    Edit: I was lucky enough to get Saudi's 747SP and Bahrains 747SP. What a cool looking airplane.

    Welcome aboard! Given your list, You'll want to be around for UN Week next year. This year we had both Japan 744s and 2 Iraqi Airways planes.

    A chance for you in NYC? I have no clue. Maybe for me in AMS or FRA. Looks really stunning
