    Any suggested spots for photographing 22R departures at JFK?

    Got some photos from bayswater once but they were only ok. Same with from the mcdonalds in rock park right over the 2nd bridge going down cross bay to Rockaway.

    With regards to photographing 22R departures:
    - During the morning hours the best place would the Bayswater
    - During the afternoon after the sun crosses the runway the best location is Broad Channel American Park which is located just before the Cross Bay Bridge toll plaza on the right side if you are driving south on Cross Bay Blvd.

    You'll need at least a zoom lens that extends to 400mm for both locations to get reasonable shots.

    Here are a few shots:
