It was nice meeting up with with Rafal am running into John M again JFK and glad Blendi came along too. I was glad to have finally met you! The day wasn't very eventful but its always great to be able to get out and chat it up with some fellow photogs. The day had its humor with me locking msyelf out of the car (car locked automatically) when I closed the door. Luckily I had my camera with me and not on the other side of the door when the Austrian 767 landed on 31L. Blendi, Thanks for letting me use you AAA card to contact AAA and thx John for letting me use your cellphone and not letting me freeze to death out there. The funny part was right after this happend the Inwood Park Guy (the second half of Evil Inwood Duo) starts diving around!....I was like oh God not this guy! not now!. He drove past us like times not he went on his way eventually thankfully. We were just shooting 31L while waiting for AAA to come.
When we got back to Costco I had the pleasure of finally meeting Mark Gerrard and Seymour Hills.
Here are a few a/c shots from the day.

It was an odd day - landing 22L all morning, while the winds were 290 - 300 at 15+knots plus gusts. I went by the approach lights on Rockaway Blvd, and could see the tail markings on one guy on short final, he had much crab angle in to keep lined up. Finally switched to 31L& R, and I met up with Senga, Tom T, Rafal & Blendi over at Costco. Another cold, windy day of spotting, but a good day none the less.


thx John for letting me use your cellphone and not letting me freeze to death out there.

Couldn't let you turn into a "Senga-cicle" out there :)

Here are a few of mine:

Aeromexico 757:

I got the Austrian too (and hopefully Senga learned a valuable lesson about spare keys):

Senga

that would explain it, I thought it was the mounds but I wasn't sure if you could get in there or not with the construction.
