    UN Week - 2016

    Looking forward to this year's UNGA and hopefully a productive one as the various delegations start to arrive in a few weeks. Hope the Qatar delegation comes in with their 748, and the Mexican delegation with their 787, and who know's what else may show up.

    Here is the link with info on the 71st UNGA

    Thanks for starting the thread Mark, I don't get out much these days so looking forward to seeing you all out there! Got some new glass to try out as well

    I have to wonder if they'll be on 13R as much this year, that was crazy last year(but at least there are spots for it)

    Thanks for the heads-up. I've heard that if you have only one day to get out, Sunday 9/18 is probably the best bet. I have a commitment that evening in Connecticut - if I stayed up until about 5 p.m. that day, would I catch a lot of the good stuff, or does it tend to come in later? How about Saturday 9/17? I'd really love to catch some Russian planes if possible.

    If you only have 2 days to play with, the Saturday and Sunday before the opening debates are definitely the days you want to be out.

    There is no guarantee you'll see the Russian metal. It's called praying and hoping, just come out to have a good time and maybe we'll get lucky with a Tupelov/Antonov/IL, you never know...

    Very unlikely to see any UN traffic until Thursday or Friday of this week, with the bulk arriving Sat/Sun and Air Force 1 usually on Monday afternoon.

    TFR is up, starting the 14th.
    It's hard to take chances but sometimes it's better if you do

    Thanks for the response, megatop. It's very early for a weather forecast, but at this point NOAA is calling for Saturday to be the better of the two days, so if that continues to track I'll probably go for Saturday. Fingers crossed!

    Were there 2 Amiri's? I believe a USAF c17 and c40 came as well.

    Let the games begin! Looks like the UNGA visitors are starting to trickle in. I was able to catch the State of Kuwait 748 from a spot near work.

    Wow that A345 is really the best looking A340 to date I think. Too bad they didn't have it when the Thai Government was using the MD-11 and A346 for VIP flights.
