    Did any 777s come in? :roll: haha. If PIA brought in their LR, I think you'd have every 777 version pretty easily in one thread.

    Good stuff.

    Nice pick up of Austrian 777!! Im assuming that unmarked Connie 747 you got is a new for them and an ex JAL bird.

    By the way that Air France 777 (F-GSQH) did a go around yesterday while trying to land at 31L. It then did the whole canarsie climb thing, i saw it for like 3 seconds over me before it was gone:

    We saw it go around and soon after that they switched to 22s, but missed it by the time i got there. They switched to 13s about 15 min later.

    Etihad's Airbus A340-600 also landed on 13L about an hour after they made that switch ;)

    Does anyone know what was the reason to bring it to JFK??? I thought that Etihad already operated one A340-500 in the morning...



    P.S. I think that A380 in Etihad's golden colors will be one of the most beautiful planes around!

    Hey man
    there was some great photos here, and lots of heavy’s that I like.
    I like the photo of Austrian T7! Hope to get photos like this within the week, where did you take those photos from?

    Anyone planning some spotting at JFK (ore LGA) during this week?

    The odd thing about this day, was that for a period JFK was using 31's with the wind [email protected] 10. This is why the go around, and rapid switch occured. Was it foggy out? It wouldn't make sense for them not to use 13 otherwise.

    Kim777, the pics were taken from the firestone location.

    flyguy1, no it was not foggy at that time, but clouds coming in from the east.
