    Just got back home to Philly and I have to say, this was by far the most fun UN Week I've ever had. Thanks to all for the great company, great conversations, and by all means great memories that will keep me going until next year. I remain humbled by the depth of aviation knowledge possessed by this spotting community and feel privileged to be a part of it, and friend to all of you.

    I won't be gumming up the thread with the shots we all got but may post some people/gear shots as I edit them.

    Anyone there today when the sonic boom scared the crap out of the whole South Shore?

    Nice overview of some of the traffic at SWF this year: https://instagram.com/p/BKnS2NdAZRk/

    Looks like the Iraqi 77L snuck in.

    Thursday:
    Early AM: Senegal, Egypt, and Colombia have all relocated to JFK before 0900. A USAF C-17 also landed JFK just before 9 on a REACH-T callsign. The Australia BBJ went from HPN to ADW. The Japanese PM is due to travel to Cuba today, but I don't know if that's already happened, or is still to come later this afternoon.
    0920: Venezuela 732 0207 is off SWF and not on a reposition track, so it's heading out of our area. I believe this is also the "unknown jetliner" between Pakistan and Kuwait from the post above.
    1000: Brazil E145 2584 and Chile 763 985 both arriving JFK.
    1005: And another ma'a salama, this time for Egypt! SU-GGG is passing Martha's Vineyard.
    1025: The G450 P4-BFL operating for, I think, Guinea-Bissau departed TEB. [EDIT: And is coming to JFK via roughly Bridgeport. Probably should have taken the GWB]
    1030: Dana hunu, Ethiopia! ETH8509 (B763/ET-ALJ) off EWR.
    1035: The Monaco F7X 3A-MGA is off Cape Cod and heading to the area. It's used TEB in the past. [Nope, at FL430 past Montauk. Not New York-bound.] [EDIT2: Monaco has convinced Potomac Tracon that they're actually a country and are arriving ADW. Fun fact: at approximately 7 square miles, Andrews AFB is 9 times the size of Monaco]
    1040: Sayonara, Japan! B744 20-1102 just off JFK. This is bound for Havana. The other Japan 744 went directly to IAD on Sunday, and I haven't seen it come up to this area at all.
    1045: And there goes the Colombia 734 (FAC1209) from Stewart. Another "wait 'til next year" frame for me.
    1120: AAAAAAAAAARGH, the other Japan (20-1101) departed JFK probably around 1100. Can't believe I missed this one again.
    1140: Adios, Colombia! Their BBJ is cruising southbound from JFK.
    1305: Mangi dem, Senegal! Adeus, Guinea-Bissau! 6V-ONE and P4-BFL both departing JFK in the past half-hour. Also have a Canadian Challenger (CFC3702/144615) descending for TEB, and the Bolivia F900 also inbound TEB. About 10 minutes away for both.
    1340: BBJ VP-BOP as LGT1 is on approach to JFK. Be sure to adjust your white balance. I believe this is carrying the Palestinian delegation.
    1400: G550 HZ-SK6 arriving JFK. Unknown if UN-related, but still probably worth highlighting any foreign biz jets.
    1500: Iran 340 EP-AJA just off ADW; should arrive JFK around 1525, likely 13L.
    1505: Honduras Legacy repositioning to JFK; Bolivia Falcon departing TEB. The Bolivian is headed for Gander, so looks like New York was just an intermediate stop on Evo's Big Adventure. [EDIT: Geneva after Gander.]
    1630: Cote d'Ivoire a'Irbus off SWF for what appears to be EWR. VP-BOP has bopped off JFK eastbound. AF2 went LGA-ADW earlier this afternoon.
    1650: Djibouti F7X J2-HPV reposition from SWF to JFK.
    1730: Adios, Honduras! Haze grey and underway back to Tegucigalpa. [EDIT: Err, underway to Andrews]
    1815: The Uganda G550 is on its way up from Dover to JFK, and I got a quick sniff of the Jordan G650 which was off ISP and went to LGA, I think.
    1820: Better late than never, I suppose. Mali BBJ TZ-PRM is descending for JFK having come from Bamako.
    1905: You go, TU-VAS! The Ivorian 319 is off EWR.
    1910: Khoda hafez, Iran! EP-AJA is south of Block Island and heading away.
    2010: What's shakin'? Djibouti! They departed JFK about 20 minutes ago. The pair of Turks (A332 TC-TUR and G550 TC-ATA) are both just about to arrive JFK from SWF. The Iraqi 772LR (YI-AQZ) is also off SWF and should be at JFK in about 15 minutes.
    2045: VQ-BNZ, Jordan's G650 (registered in Bermuda, as one does), was indeed at LGA, but is now airborne over New England.
    2050: Vistajet Global 9H-VJH, opf Sierra Leone based on the SL001 callsign, is inbound JFK from PNE. Don't think I've seen that one as an overflow airport before.
    2125: The Mali has made its usual reposition to HPN.
    2205: The Monegasque Falcon (yes, that's the proper adjective) is finally going to TEB, only 12 hours after I first thought it was going to. Fun Fact 2: At 827 acres, Teterboro airport is 1.66 times as large as Monaco.
    2225: Kwaheri, Uganda! 5X-UGF has departed JFK. F7X A6-MMF has also just departed JFK under its usual MJE001 call.

    Today's speakers: Cameroon, Cyprus, Sierra Leone, Lithuania, El Salvador, Iran, Kiribati, Benin, Cote d'Ivoire, Madagascar (the excellently-named Hery Martial Rajaonarimampianina Rakotoarimanana), Palestine, Norway, Israel, Monaco (but he only gets 30 seconds), Lebanon, Iraq, Vatican, Bulgaria, Rwanda, Liberia, Burkina Faso, Macedonia, Marshall Islands, Libya, Guatemala, Angola, Venezuela, Serbia, Greece, and Malta. There are available slots, but no speakers scheduled for Algeria, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Cuba, Netherlands, South Korea, Equatorial Guinea, and Paraguay.

    Senga, thanks! I knew that blue bottom was familiar, I just couldn't place it.

    Hi Matthew,
    The Unknown a/c is N673BF B762. The second unknown a/c is (was) FAC B734. I see the the FAH E135 has titles on it now.

    Awesome update Matthew :) Much better than my old spotting logs :)

    Last night the Turkish A330, Iraq 777 and Mali came in and departed. Not sure if anything else came in or not last night after those aircraft.

    Matthew, .... Thanks for the great info and updates. It's greatly appreciated.

    Here are a few more, with still more to process.

    FRIDAY
    One that I didn't notice moving last night was the El Al 763. 0100 was pretty much the deadline to depart and still make it back to Israel before Shabbat, so it looks like they'll be in the US until at least tomorrow evening. Last year, they parked at a T4 hardstand.


    Before 0930: Only one that I noticed moving was the Pakistan G450, J-756, which went to JFK.
    1030: Get the Hellas out of HPN! Greek G-V 678 departed about 15 minutes ago. Call is HAF352B.
    1450: I-TALY, an A345 arrived JFK. No points for guessing who it belongs to.
    1645: RA-96017, the Russia IL-96, is on the move from ADW, likely coming to JFK. ETA ~1715.
    1700: HZ-NSA went back to Newark.
    1730: Arrivederci, unknown country whose delegation is using I-TALY!
    1925: 767KS opf Chad and one of the Saudi BBJs are at JFK. [EDIT: HZ-MF1]
    2030: Da svidanya, Rossiya! IL-96 RA-96017 blasted off 22R with a 4-engine roar. Sweet vindication for me.
    2035: The Chad 762 is taxiing out.
    2045: Was wondering when this would finally show. A319CJ A6-CJE inbound from the Cleveland Clinic on an Emirates callsign. Due JFK around 2115.
    2235: Nindaare, Burkina Faso! B722 XT-BFA has departed from EWR.

    Speakers list today is Albania, Guinea, Niger, Central African Republic, Comoros, Yemen, Haiti, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, Moldova, Samoa, Belgium, Mauritius, Russia, Armenia, Germany, North Korea, Hungary, Sweden, Mali, Botswana, Indonesia, South Sudan, Nicaragua, Laos, Jamaica, Solomon Islands, Lesotho, Andorra, Vanuatu, Saint Vincent, Tuvalu, Sao Tome, Venezuela, Uzbekistan, Ecuador, Azerbaijan, DR Congo, and Morocco.

    I barely made it out for the Italian Air Force A340-500 as it was totally unexpected. I did not get my alerts for it as they have apparently change the hexcode from when it was undergoing maintenance and test flights before entering VIP service. Thank goodness I had the IAM Code set for an alert so I logged it and noticed it after the fact. This aircraft was on my most wanted of new planes.

    Thanks Mark,
    The IAM is the 4th newbie this year for me. This are some nice shots as well there. Maybe we will get another surprise.

    SATURDAY:
    1010: Nigeria BBJ repositioned from DOV to JFK.
    ...and that was about all. The Nigeria departed right around Noon.
    As of this afternoon, the UAE 319 was at the northside cargo area, the El Al 763 was on a T4 hardstand, and the Saudi BBJ was at the ramp formerly known as the triple hangars.
    The Kuwait 739 9K-GCC arrived Stewart last night, positioned over to JFK this evening and then departed.

    SUNDAY:
    0950: Ecuador F7X FAE-052 departing LGA in a direction that doesn't go over my house. Looks like it arrived from the north earlier this morning.
    Also combing through some logs from yesterday, the French Falcon opf Togo departed TEB in the 0700 hour Saturday morning.
    Evening: Aside from the Comlux (Thanks, Gordon), it looks like the Mali came down from HPN around 1730, loaded, and has now departed.

    Curious about the whereabouts of the Ecuador Legacy. It went to FLL after its LGA dropoff, and their FM spoke yesterday.

    The Comlux 767-200 that was up at SWF is now by the deicing hangar at JFK.
