I work next to GSO and saw a ton of planes out there.
2 Midway 737s are the Cargo Terminal
Spirit Air DC9 at Main Terminal
Air Canada A330 at main terminal
2 Air Canada CRJs
And odd looking 727 at Cargo terminal
about 40 or so Jetstreams, Dash-8s, Saabs, 737s, DC9s, CRJs of AA, UA, CO, Northwest, USAir scattered all over the place.
Can't see in between the terminals though, maybe some more larger craft there.

At Montreal Dorval
These are the aircraft diverted that I can see. AC from Munich also diverted in. There is a row of AC Narrow Bodie Airbus' at the AC maintenance hanger. There are a total of 7 diverted trans atlantic aircraft diverted to YUL.

All of Aloha's 737-200s and Hawaiian's 717-200s are still parked at the inter-island terminal. News of the New York and DC incidents hit the islands before the first inter-island flights were scheduled to leave.
A Quantas 744 which is rare and a couple of China Airlines 744s.
1 Evergreen 742
3 Northwest DC-10s
2 Continential DC-10s
3 Hawaiian DC-10s
1 Swissair MD-11
1 United 744
2 United 772s
1 United 752
2 JAL 744Ds
2 JAL DC-10s
2 Fedex MD-11
2 Polar Air 741s
It's so quiet, no AC flying at all, it's so strange for a state that depends so heavily on airplanes.

Today, six airplanes crossing the Atlantic Ocean on their way to the USA requested permission to land at Keflavik, Iceland (KEF). Only four of them did land, two 767 SAS jets and two 747-400 Lufthansa Jets.
Here are some photos I took today (click to enlarge):
Lufthansa 747-400 (D-ABVW)
SAS 767 (LN-RCE)
Reykjavik Aviation Photography - Just bring the aircraft to us and we'll photograph them! :-)

Too many to mention, obviously, but also, obviously, nothing unusual, it's just wierd seeing all these planes jammed up together. MIA is AA heaven right now. Just about every type of AA plane is in there in at least groups of six to ten. Lot's of UA 777s too, as well as Iberia's fleet of A319s. Lot's of planes that usually do not overnight in Miami from LanChile, TAM, Varig, and others, are also grounded. Given the time of the stoppage of flights, there all European-bound planes for Miami from Europe did not reach Miami. Lufthansa's 747 ended up in Bermuda, Air France's 747, which was already half way across the Atlantic, made it to Lisbon, the other flight, an A340, never took off. Iberia's 747 made it back to Madrid, the A340 never took off. I do not know about the status of other planes.

5 or 6 America West A320's and A319's
5 or 6 Southwest 737's
2 or 3 America West Express CRJ's
About a dozen USAirways and USAirways Express aircraft, including several A319's and A320's, F-100's, ERJ's and Saabs.
Most of these aircraft were parked at the airport's east overflow ramp, several other were stationed on the taxiway to runway 28L. Some of the diverted USAirways aircraft were parked at their gates at Concourse A.
My deepest condolences to all the people affected by the horendous tragedies that took place this morning. God bless America.

There is a plane from JFK en route to Guatemala parked at the Columbia Metropolitan Airport (CAE). The airplane flew over lower Manhatten and one passenger took a picture of the burning towers just as the United 767 impacted.
Needless to say, the image was very disturbing.
My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved in this terrible catastrophe.

As far as I know, not too many planes diverted to San Diego - Lindbergh Field, as the airport is pretty small and was already crowded with every flight intended to leave that morning. I heard all flights diverting to the SD-TIJ region landed in Tijuana.
