dude, that would make for a great game of beer pong. IGuess the plane, and if you bomb, take another shot!

seriously, those are cool pics and much like what I get out here too. But I can never get that moon to line up with those planes! ;)

thanks for the comments...

regarding the NY center frequency...i just take photos, then replay the time of the photos on the JFK/HPN/LGA Passur trackers and those give me all of the info. i dont own a scanner.

I have done some of this myself from time to time. For me I use the scanner, ACARS and also the flight trackers.
