Ok based on the new weather reports looks like July 3rd should be a promising day to spot. I'll be going out to JFK maybe LGA early. Who else will be out there?

Chris seening you twice in a month is hard to believe! If the sun is out I will be out, no LGA though. If you want to just do JFK you can ride with me Tommy.

I tell ya if the wx is awesome and Plainview park is an option I may consider it, but I am not driving there to shoot in the terminal. We will play it by ear.

Hello. I would be happy to join a group, I'm new at this and don't know my way around yet. I've been to Planeview park once but the planes were taking off on runway 22 :(. I havent even tried JFK yet. Where is everyone meeting, I'd love to meet people who like aviation photography. I don't have a car or anything so im stuck using public.

Why the frown?! Runway 22 deps from Planeview are awesome! Do you mean they were departing runway 4 (away from Planeview)?

Well there's always a good chance that they're arriving on 22, and there's a park (spot D on the LGA map: http://nycaviation.com/lgaspotting) which is easily accessible by public transportation, and great for skyline and side-on shots of 22 arrivals.

A good friend of mine is flying up from Florida and looking to do some spotting. We'd love to meet up with some of you guys at both LGA and JFK. Where can we meet up with you guys?

I'm going to try to make it on Monday. I have a funeral at a still undetermined time that day, but hopefully I can squeeze it in. (The spotting, I mean!) I look forward to meeting you guys.
