I know this is not as exciting as last nights EWR visitor but there is a Champion 727 coming to LGA this
evening, Champion 2690 from DTW eta 1908 lcl. I will post an update when it shows enroute, will
probably park at the MAT. Still trying to figure out who is doing the Dodgers charter after the Mets game.
A DL 757 ferried in to take the Mets to DEN but can't find anything for the Dodgers.

Ron, you think that 22 will still be the arrival runway at that time? I'd love to get out and shoot this bird, but if it arrives on 22 and goes straight to the MAT there aint a whole lot of photo opportunities to be had.

Josh, with the forecasted winds looks like land 22, depart 31 the rest of the evening. Only place I can think of
is the Park in College Pointe, would probably be a little backlit so probably not worth it.

Have no idea when it is leaving but it did spend the night in LGA at 5 Towers. If it is
still there when I go in at 1300L Monday I will update this.

Well the 727 finally departed LGA at 1824L today 7-28 with the same flight number it arrived with 2690 operating to BED Bedford, Mass. This also confirms my guess on why it was here, brought the Minnesota Twins to play the Yankees, the Twins start a series with the Red Sox on Friday. I took today off so I missed the departure.
