    JFK - 8/8/2015 (Eastern Airlines)

    Howdy,

    Making here first appearance, it was a pleasant surprise to see Eastern Airlines (N276EA) show up and bound for JFK last night. Unfortunately it was a 3:30am arrival. I did manage to get her arriving at the gate, but once she arrived she was swarmed with all the ground equipment. She departed off RWY 31L around 9-ish this morning. Here are a few shots from this very early morning outing and departure!

    Thanks Rich! I set the alarm for 2am and headed out around 2:30am just incase she popped in a wee bit earlier. You wouldn't believe it, but a around 4am, T5 was already jumping with folks arriving for their early morning departs. I guess the city and JFK never sleep. :P

    Nice to see those colors out and about
    The beehive hummm of the JT9D and GE CF680C2,the thunder of the JT8D-17,the rumble of the PW1830 and the high ,thin whine of the PW 545A are all music to my ears!
