    So sorry to hear about your stroke! Hope the recovery has been going well. Unfortunately, I haven't figured out how to post photos to the forum yet. Once I figure that out, I'll have them up haha!

    Me as well. I have hundreds of Kodacolor photos taken in the 80s & 90s from the old Pan Am Roof, from the British Concorde Terminal & from the hill by Rwy 22L but I have no way to transfer old photos to digital to post. After 9-11, I got chased away from my spotting spotting areas. Thanks Allied Barton & Argenbright.

    India 1 enroute to maybe ADW or IAD; not JFK. The Russian IL96 departed JFK & is heading west.

    I was hoping they would. Israel speaks on the 27th, so they still have some time before they need to be here.

    Appreciate the update! Unfortunately Japan's 777s are going to DC because Suga is attending the Quad summit with Biden, Morrison and Modi in person and sent a pre-recorded statement to the UNGA.

    Curious if VIP aircraft can only stay 2 hours atvJFK, what happens if one stays longer? Is it fined or towed? Surprised none landed at EWR to discharge delegates.

    The Russian IL96 was there longer than 2 hours yesterday (around 3 hrs). Three UNs ago the Iranian A340 stayed much longer than 2 hours when he came back to pick up their delegation. Yesterday after Russia and Italy left, the Sky Prime A332 (over 2 hrs on the ground too) was all alone at the south staging area.

    Did Senegal land on 31L? I was on the garage, never saw it.

    Any other VIPs expected or is that's pretty much the end?

    Usually the Port Authority is pretty strict on the two hour limit with limited exceptions. I think they start to fine aircraft past that two hour mark. I'm convinced, though, that they lifted the rule this year because, as previously mentioned, almost every gov't aircraft that was at JFK last Sunday was there for at least three hours. Like Mario said, there were a lot of other aircraft that were here for longer than two hours too.

    Newark is usually pretty light on UNGA traffic. They usually get Burkina Faso, Niger, Togo and Ethiopian, none of which came at all this year.

    Nope, they landed 31R according to ADSB Exchange.

    I believe Israel is the last one. Everything besides Libya and Israel has left to my knowledge.

    Air Senegal arrived 6:37a on Rwy 31R as HC407. She is scheduled to return on Th. from Dakar. I think the Israeli delegation used a chartered B788 from LY, probably 4X-ERB to visit. The expected new B763 is still at TLV according to sources. Lucky, you were allowed to hang-out at the garage roof. On my last visit, 2 Allied Barton vehicles harrassed me & made me leave(ended my spotting for good). I guess some spotters show credentials.
