What realistic occurances would make you jsut leave work or school and just run top speed to the airport?

My list, so far, includes:

- Plane crash at LGA

- L-1011 or DC-10 enroute to LGA

You?

If my schedule permits, I tend to go to NAS/JRB Willow Grove when I know something exotic is supposed to come in. The last time that was in effect, I caught two F/A-18 Hornets coming in.

I wish I lived closer to an airport/air base without having to pay any tolls!

A Concorde returning would get me there :D
Oh wait, you said "realistic" - well, I did leave work to watch Air Force 1 (the C-32 version) arrive at FRG. Of course, my boss was also out there that day, so I couldn't get any grief for it.

Sun? :)

I remember leaving work sick to catch the first Swiss Air A330 that was arriving JFK in old colors but new SWISS titles. I've taken a few other sick days for similar hot/new items.

DL 762s are not that uncommon. We even get the 75th Anniversary here and there.

Oops.

Any 737-200 would get me very excited as well.

Any other airline than WN, COX, ASA, DL Conn, and USX, and any other airplane than a B737, CRJ, SF 340, and B1900.

Can you guess which airport?

A runway accident at LGA.
US Airways returning to JFK.
A 741 classic (meaning 3 upper-deck windows) in passenger service.
