    JFK this weekend

    Hey Guys,

    If the weather permits I'll be visiting JFK again this Saturday. Anybody is planning on coming to JFK on Saturday?

    I plan on getting out there for at least a few hours in the afternoon, and maybe the morning, too. (Josh, are you up for it?)

    Rafal there's a good chance I'll be out this weekend, I'll let you know as we get closer. Brian if I go out and you need a ride I can pick you up. Again I'm not sure what time I'll be out.

    might go if I am not snowboarding.....but not early like last time!
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    So if I have well understood, Thai 340 leaves at about 7AM ? Wow... Here in Paris it leaves at 1PM (but in 744...). If I join you this Week end I'm not sure being at the airport at 7AM...

    Raph

    Thai's A345 usually arrives between 6am and 7am and departs between 11am and 12pm. Things have changed since I saw it last (apparently it's on a reduced schedule, too), so I need someone to fill in all the details.

    I'm going home this weekend...so Kennedy is out of the question for me. HOWEVER, I do plan on going spotting at Dulles on March 11 or 12 (in conjunction with a trip to VA Beach and spotting F-14s, F-15s, F/A-18s, and F-22s) and would love to find out the best places to spot!

    Check the NATSAT.... Oh wait a minute... :)

    Rafal and Omar, unfortunately I won't be able to meet up with you guys this Saturday, but don't forget that Brian and I will be at BWI two weekends later on Saturday the 18th. Our flight gets in around 9:30am, and we don't leave until after dark. If either of you are able to meet up that day, give me a call on my cell phone during the day and we'll coordinate. 917-660-7871.

    Looks like I should be free this weekend too, so I should be able to join the crowd. Gotta go charge some batteries!

    Hello guys !

    I'll maybe be with you on saturday ? But I wonder, looking at the weather forecast, if it wasn't better to go out on sunday more than on saturday ?

    Raph ;)

    Bonjour Raphael,

    we're going to stick with Saturday....weather is pretty much the same both days and keep in mind that a few of us (including me) have already made plans to drive up for the day from D.C., so changing would really be inconvinient. Anyway, I hope you can make it out on Saturday....I look forward to meeting you! :)

    Regards,
    -Omar S.

    P.S.: Just a reminder to all those who are coming out - DRESS WARMLY OR YOU WILL FREEZE. :P
