    April 29

    Anyone up for going out this weekend?

    We might have a special guest in the form of a reporter that's doing a piece on aviation entuhsiasm.

    Come out and represent your hobby!

    I'm thinkin maybe a little LGA and JFK.

    I would love to get some shots in of something other than BizJets at KTEB... will my wimpy 55mm lens be able to catch anything or will it be pointless?

    same here. I felt guilty monday.

    my car was giving me problems, the house's electric was flickering, had to wait for LIPA last night, got to finsih the living room....

    in other words, got to keep the woman happy. as long as shes happy, I can steal away more time in the future.... :)
    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.

    Mario, understatement of the year, I have only been married 2 1/2 years but I learned right off the bat, keeping your wife happy is EVERYTHING. That's why you guys never see me out on the weekends and I am happy with my choice. Will get out one of these days, whoever heads out have fun !

    Cheers

    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    Hi Phil,
    I plan to spot at JFK this weekend. It will be my last call till Fall 06 as heat/haze gets bad day by day. Plan to be there both Sat/Sun. My cell 860-605-5020. Frequency will be active after 04:30 Sat (gotta get early start out of CT) and will stay overnight at one of the area (JFK) hotels. Hope to see you then,

    I'll be out in Planeview park by LGA's rwy 4 by 0730 on Sat. The wind is forecast out of the NE at 12 Kts. I was there today (FR) from 0830 to 1 pm. Saw the US "Allegheny" 319 depart around 0900, but it hadn't come back by the time I left. GREAT weather today!!! Ya'll come out now ya hear!!

    According to the winds, it looks like they will be landing on 4, so Planeview Park will be the place to go.

    Anyone who needs directions can go to the NYCA site and go to Tools>Spotting Maps>LGA and look at it there.

    If you want, anyone one of you can email me and I'll give you my phone number (I'll reply with it in emails when I wake up since I'm going to bed early) so you can call me anytime after 6 or so.

    See you folks out there. :)
