Didn't see anyone else post this, so I thought I'd let everyone know we had a nice group out Sunday for some spotting at JFK. It was me, Tommy A, Mario (and Highheels - see her group photos on the Photography forum) Eric, and Chris. The in-and-out clouds made it a challenge, but also provided some interesting backdrops.

We started at North Woodmere Park for some 22L arrivals:

He was coming in from McGuire AFB:

They switched to 31R on us, so we headed to Burger King for some lunch, and this:

Finally, a stop at Costco:

With the clouds firmly overhead killing the light, we hit the road. It was a fun day of spotting and just hanging out. Looking forward to the next one!

Jon nice pics! I uploaded some of mine to JP.net. Its to bad we didn't have that morning sun with us but oh well. Sometimes weather can make for some interesting backdrops. Doesn't look like this weekend will be a spotting weekend, cloudy and snow.

Yeah, I saw your's up on JP.net, nice stuff! It took me a little longer, but I've got some from Sunday up there now, and several more in the screening queue.

I'm just hating that we're supposed to get snow this weekend, what ever happened to this "Global Warming" that you keep hearing about? :D

John,
Thats some really great light you had there that day! I wish I saw more light like that out in the field. The Shamrock is just fantastic!
Nice shots :)
