Hello,

I was recently reminded of my first approach to JFK, in 1992. It was a pre-dawn arrival on a red-eye from LAX. As I recall, we passed over the Varazzano Narrows, over developed areas of Brooklyn, and then landed on 13R.

I know 13R arrivals are rare, and it seems like a good noise abatement runway for the final approach, but it seems like much of the approach was over fairly developed areas. Was this a common pre-dawn approach then, and is it now?

Thanks!

the approach you were on is the canarsie VOR approach. not that strange, and not that hard. you just track the VOR inbound, then bank it hard to 130 when your over the VOR. as to it's usage, that all depends on the winds and what is being done on the ground. also, i would say that you landed 13L and not 13R. 13R is used for takeoffs as it's longer.

Thanks for the info! It was actually 13R, which I found surprising. I was sitting on the left side and saw Terminals 2 & 3 (at that point I still thought of them as The Worldport) full of A310s, 757s, and 767s with Widgets on the fins (I really miss those.).
Thanks again!

Was your flight with Delta? I work at JFK and see that the majority of 13R arrivals are Delta flights.

UCLAX,

That is a pretty common approach. I used to live right under the approach. Imagine 747's flying less than two thousand feet above your head, early morning as well as late night.
