It's 6:48am and I'm up. If you're up for driving to LGA right now, I'll be out until about 10am.

Ok, I got back earlier than I thought. The sun got high pretty fast. For 13 deps, once that sun gets high....you're done.

I believe this has to be the shortest spotting trip I have ever seen done by you. haha

What planes did you see? just the usual scheduled ones into LGA?

Actually, MOST of my spottings trips are that short.

When spotting fomr a park or something on the east side of LGA....you can only do it inthe morning at sunrise. And even on a clear day, the horizon can be hazy, making it useless.

So I rarely ever know if I'm going out until that morning when the sun rises, and then I can only do it until the sun gets too high.

I took 174 shots. Only 3 were useable because of low light.
