    Qatar's VQ-BSK B748 JFK pics

    Greetings,
    I,we picked this newbie up at JFK today. We almost missed it do to 3 different runway assignments 22L then 13L then BACK to 22L. It was maddening. VQ-BSK was being vectored for 22L initially but due to a SWR A330 emergency the pilot eventually opted for Runway 13L (Instead of going into a holding pattern. Then after the SWR landed the Controller suddenly instructed the pilot to go BACK to 22L and he was almost passing through through the approach course). I would have missed the arrival if I had crossed Rockaway Blvd. When I heard the initial runway change all I could do was get in my car and go. Anyway I would have really preferred that they flew in the 747SP come in (VP-BAT) but oh well. I am glad to see others are utilizing the scanners and knew what was going on as I did not have the time to yell to everyone.

    Wish I could have joined you guys, unfortunately work took priority. I had to settle for a night shot, not the greatest since the winds were still kicking.

    Thanks for the compliments.

    That's a nice shot mark especially since most of the action this place is happening the rear you for the bets part of it.

    That B748 livery looks like a heavily modified version of the old "State of Qatar" colors
