    UN Week - 2018

    The main debate at the UNGA starts on Tuesday, so let's get this year's tracking thread going.

    Some very early arrivals have trickled in so far earlier in the week. One of the Dubai 744s (MMM) did a drop at JFK and went to Stewart. I've seen a couple of the Qatar narrowbodies (HSJ and MBK) also bounce off JFK and go to Stewart. There have been a pair of Reach Tango (VIP support) missions that I've noticed, one to JFK and one to Newark. One was a Dover and one was a Charleston, but I don't remember the serials offhand or which was which.


    The Colombia 734 (FAC1209) had been at Stewart since Tuesday and went down to Andrews this morning.


    In a good news/bad news arrangement, it looks like AF1 is going straight to Newark late tonight from Missouri, so good that it doesn't create any of the related hassles at JFK, bad that those who wanted a JFK picture won't get it (at least on the dropoff; the pickup could very well be Kennedy).


    Any other updates from today will be made as edits to this message.

    1600: Mexican G550 (3910) popped off Andrews and headed south. QATAR 332 (A7-HHM/QAF3) over New Hampshire; New York possible in about an hour. A SAM G550 went to Teterboro earlier in the afternoon, as well.
    1620: Qatar now in the descent for JFK. NAMIBIA Falcon 7 (V5-GON) descending, looks like Teterboro in about 20 minutes. EGYPT 342 (SU-GGG) just off the Maine coast. Expect JFK in about an hour. (Missed it by that much - Namibia went to Newark.)
    1740: Didn't think I'd be watching the screens on the Friday prior, but here we are. One of the Qatar Exec G650s (CGD) took an odd route, but appears to be joining the JFK arrivals stream [NOT JFK, one of the NJ airports]. On the ground in 15. DUBAI 2, B744 A6-MMM just departed Stewart, stopped climb at 5K, and is probably being vectored to shortly arrive JFK on 22L.
    1830: ref below - From media pictures, Zimbabwe delegation arrived yesterday aboard B762 P4-CLA. Reposition Stewart.
    1845: KUWAIT 739 (KUG97/9K-GCC) off the Maine coast. Usually goes to JFK. Figure about 90 minutes. Stewart is the usual reposition for them.
    1900: The Namibia repositioned from Newark to Teterboro, which seems like a great use of everyone's time to not have them go to TEB in the first place.
    2200: No one got the memo that Friday was supposed to be quiet. QATAR 342 (HHK) arrived JFK. The Egypt 342 and the Kuwait 739 both went up to Stewart (looks like the Egypt isn't getting the super special secret long-term JFK parking this year). Dubai 2 is headed for the Atlantic. Weird 777 N777UK is inbound to American airspace. Point of departure for the Triple was Le Bourget.

    The new Zimbabwe president already in New York, not sure how he got there but not with the Air Zim B767.
    The Swaziland King will more than likely arrive in his “new” A343 3DC-SDF.

    Yes can confirm Zimbabwe used the B767 P4-CLA left Harare on 19th.
    A Vistajet Global on route out of Gambia possibly Gambia 1 departed 10h00 Z
    A6-RJU on the ground in Cape Verde arrived 05h00Z as Angola 1 - just airborne 11h25Z
    CS-TQX currently airborne out of Equatorial Guinea around 11h00Z heading north up over Nigeria.

    No more 707’s, or Il-62’s alas...
    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!

    Saturday
    0830: Turkish AF A400 16-0078 arrived JFK. The Vista Global from Banjul is going to Teterboro (No Il-62? Boo.). GHANA 1, their Falcon 900, is also filed into Teterboro for a 2046L arrival this evening. The Ceiba usually uses Newark, but assuming it doesn't fuel stop, the arrival will be right around sunset.
    There's also BBJ T7-PAL out of Le Bourget that looks to be headed for the ocean. Doing the math, should be about a 4pm arrival if it's coming to New York. [nvm, it's descending for Dublin(?). I'll keep an eye if it resurfaces.] A310 HZ-NSA is also out there, but it's filed into Cleveland, so it's unrelated.
    0915: Looks like we're also getting a CAP. There's a Milwaukee-based KC-135 about to join the usual racetrack.
    1020: C-17 inbound JFK on a Reach Tango. 02-1098, which is McGuire-based.

    Afternoon session: The McGuire C-17 departed around noon. BBJ2 N737GG stopped by. Origin was Stansted, reposition was Dulles, but I don't know who it was operating for. A332 VP-CBE also visited. It came from exotic Cleveland, and headed back to the west. Royal Jet BBJ A6-RJU operated as ANGOLA 1 and had an Angolan flag decal. Reposition SWF. TURKEY G550 TC-CBK arrived without pinging or anything. Last one was the QATAR 748 in full QR c/s, A7-HHE. Also repositioned Stewart. There was a CAP up all day, but only the first guy was visible before the overcast rolled in. Of note, the VIPs all used either 31L or 4L.

    1900: BRAZIL Legacy 2583 and COLOMBIA BBJ FAC0001 have landed JFK within the past hour.
    1945: PANAMA Legacy HP-1A is over eastern North Carolina and heading this way.
    2100: The Panama went to White Plains, which I think is their usual. The Brazil is repositioning Islip, also their usual. The Colombia has also departed. I want to say they're a usual Dover client.
    2359: Royal Jet BBJ A6-RJV is near Abidjan calling DRC001. It'll be here sometime tomorrow morning.

    Sunday
    There seem to be some data issues going on at the moment, so it's like the old days of, say, 2012 all over again! Thanks for the updates out of Africa. I noticed a bunch of those heavy biz coming across, but it's impossible to tell unless they're using a bespoke callsign. For those unfamiliar with the conversion, EDT is at Zulu - 4 (and thanks for giving the foreign updates in Z).
    0930: PERU 735 FAP356 arrived LGA. LEBANON is coming on MEA 332 OD-MEE. Call MEA1, ETA JFK 1700L. The Ceiba CS-TQX is off Cape Cod and will be on the ground in 40 minutes. EWR typical for them. [EDIT: Yes, Newark.]
    0935: Big One! CUBA IL-96 planned to JFK 1230L as CUB106. [Edit: Just airborne 0940L, so that ETA looks good.]
    0940: The Swazi (eSwatini?) 340 landed in Morocco about 2 hours ago. Should hopefully give them time to fuel and still reach here before sunset. T7-PAL, that BBJ from yesterday, is about to coast out from Ireland. If it's coming to JFK, it'll be in the mid-16 hour. Coincidentally, the Palestinian President made an official visit to Dublin yesterday. The Iran is a little later than the ETA above - will be in the 1400 hour. It's still in the Greenland-Iceland gap.
    1020: Swazi now airborne; expect in the mid-16 hour.
    1045: The DR CONGO Royal Jet (A6-RJV) is about 45 minutes out. I also see a Global that appears to have come off Cotounou that's near Cape Verde at the moment. No other info. A C-17 as REACH 565T is on final to 4L.

    Evening update: Don't think we had anything that wasn't flagged here already, so strong work. The REACH from the morning was Charleston's 09-9205. Cubana was CU-T1250. Saw the DRC/Royal Jet, Iran, Korea, and both Turkeys. Swaziland and the Lebanon/MEA both arrived 4R. One of the Japans went to JFK (20-1102), while the other one went to IAD. The Nigeria wound up stopping in the Azores and arriving around 1815. The Palestine went to Newark.

    Repositions: Cuba - Stewart, DRC - Stewart, Turks - Stewart, Lebanon - Stewart, eSwatini - Stewart, Japan - Dulles, Iran - Westover.

    1940: The BRAZIL 319 (2101) is setting up for a JFK approach.
    2000: CANFORCE 1 (Challenger 144618) has arrived Teterboro. There's also a plan in the system for the Bolivia Falcon 900 to go from TEB to ILG (its usual) later this evening, but unclear where it is right now. Also got the MALI on screen; about 30 minutes out from wherever its going (was Kennedy - arrived 2045).
    2100: The GREECE G-V (678) is off Cape Cod and heading this way. Likely to either TEB or HPN. The eSwatini 340 has departed; it's a Stewarty-looking track. (Update: Aye.)
    2120: HONDURAS Legacy (FAH-001) on final for JFK. The BOLIVIA Falcon 900 (FAB-001) is crossing behind him, but bound for Teterboro.
    2125: Le sigh. MEXICO 787 over southern West Virginia headed this way. ETA JFK is 2230L.
    2145: It'll be Teterboro for the Greece. Forgot to note this earlier - this is the last ride for the Japan 747s. They're getting a pair of 777s that will go into service next year (one has already been delivered, one is still in outfitting).
    2150: There's a Chinese-reg BBJ approaching JFK, B-3999. It's off Paramaribo, which is, uh, not near China. This gets the official shrug emoji from me, but I'll note it here nonetheless, since it's interesting.
    2210: Nigeria out. They usually go to Dover.
    2230: Nigeria to Dover. Mali out and going to White Plains. Mexico on final for JFK. Brazil out for Islip.

    The Swazi A343 airborne out of Cassablanca about 30 min ago.
    Nigeria 1 5N-FGT also over the Atlantic just off Morocco about an hour ahead of the Swazi.
