Hello all, it has been awhile. I was wondering if anyone can tell me at what time the Concorde arrives and departs JFK? I would like to plan a trip to photograph it before I no longer have the chance. If anyone knows or would like to hang out and show me around JFK, I would appreciate the assistance.

According to flytecomm,BA comes in around 5:22pm & Air France comes in around 8:16 am. Not sure on departure times,but I remember listening to JFK tower on the internet and hearing "Speedbird Concorde One Heavy " leaving around 8:30 am .

According to Sabre (and I know that is not always 100%) it does show the AM JFK-CDG Air France Concorde flight operating on May 31, which is a Saturday. The next day, Sunday June 1 and following days after no longer show the Concorde on the skeds for AF.

I plan on going to JFK either Friday or Saturday this week with a friend of mine to see the Concordes. Anyone else going to New York before Air France stops service? I don't want to miss that plane. I've only seen the Concorde in flight once when it went over my house at 18,000 feet years ago heading to IAD.

Right now I'm planning on being there both Friday morning and Saturday morning. However, I'm flying in the night before from Springfield, IL and arriving very late. Hopefully that won't interfere.
You won't have much time for hanging around and being shown JFK. The AF departure is sched for 8:00 a.m. and the arrival about 8:25. They're within minutes of each other by the time the departure taxis out to the active. The only thing we can hope for is that they are using the 04's because that allows you to get both the inbound and outbound flights (unless they let her depart on 31L as they have done in the past). You've got to be in place pretty early or you won't catch her.
