It's going to be one of those few and far between times where I will be out at LGA for the day! I plan on getting there around 10-10:30 and staying for the duration of the day.

Hey all...

...would anyone be able to give Phil and me a ride on Sunday? Hopefully someone will want to make it out to JKF before 8am, if possible. Please let us know either by PM or give Phil a call.

Thanks!

The Mets end a 3 game home outing with the Marlins Sunday, with a 1300 start probably about a 1730-1830 Miami Air Dept out of LGA, possibly a 727 !

I'm game, but seeing I'm not old enough to drive (yet), could someone give me a lift or tell me how to get wherever I need to be?

Although I don't think I'll be able to help out personally, where are you located?

Brooklyn Heights, but I can easily meet wherver.

Is it easy to get around LGA spotting locations with subways and buses (and walking)?

Well a lot of it will depends on runway usage. We will probably be at LGA at various points around the day, so maybe you can meet up with us there and carpool around for the rest of the day.

Directions on public transportaiton to the various spots at LGA can be seen at http://nycaviation.com/lgaspotting

Thanks, Phil. When do you think there will be a general plan? I'll probably want to spend a good part of the day spotting.

I could have sworn I posted this message last night, but it doesn't seem to be showing up.

Could I have someone's cell number to call so I know where to meet up?

You can PM me or e-mail me at [email protected]

well, figures i'd make a rookie mistake. since it's been nearly a year since i got my ass out of the house to go shooting i shot with my f stop way out of wack. you would have though that after laughing at phil for the same reason that i would have checked mine but nooooooooo.

oh well, live and learn. it was great to be able to stay awake long enough to head out spotting again, especially getting to meet up with mike and tom who i haven't seen since the olympic 747 came to town. wow... time flies. phil, great seeing you again buddy... and great to finally meet tommy and melanie in person. hope you all faired better than i did. now if you'll excuse me, my alarm clock is hungry again.

Thanks to the extreme generousity of my boyfriend with his camera....I got some shots of planes I've been dying to get! Was a great day. Pretty large crowd and even some newbies. Wasn't as warm as we were hoping for, but lots of fun, nonetheless.

Here are some of my shots. Oh, and did I mention that I finally got Pink Song!?? Managed to grab her with the beacon, too. :mrgreen:

Shortly after, I the Pink Acura Legend....haha:

Cargolux 744...another steal - I took this while Phil was, once again, speaking with the cops.

Great shots Mel! I really like the shot of the Air Tahiti Nui and South African. It was a pleasure to meet you and I am glad that you finally got to catch the Pink Song!

Mel, they are lovely! MAzel Tov on the pinkie!

You know my recent liking of N610DL, so I love that. Love the South African and loving the Air Tahiti Nui! 340's look great in the right colors!

Which, BTW, can I make an early request for someone to photograph us leaving on Jun 30. I dont know which row exactly is First, but thats where I'll be trying to shoot from.


And, I heard that most of you stuck around to see us land. Thanks guys, you guys are really great.

Funny thing is I was ready and looking for out for you in case you'd be shooting, but when I saw our final turn and saw the marshes, I knew the sun was on the other side, which is where you guys would be.

I'm sorry I missed all of you on Sunday. I really underestimated the amount of time the 7 train takes.

I stayed at LGA at the Marinia (thanks for the suggestion, Phil) until about 1:30 when my shots started getting washed out. Unfortunately, the last shots were some of the more interesting shots including:

UAL 320 in new colors

US 319 in new colors
http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i221/Winglets747/USAirwaysA319.jpg

Finally, I missed the PSA landing, but I saw her (sort of) on take off:

One quick question: what's the easiest way to find out what runways LGA or JFK are using? I have some time off tomorrow and Friday, and if the weather improves I might go out.

I found this pretty cool photo of us shooting some plane. :P
