Hello everybody.

Hey Rob,

In an email a few weeks ago I told you about a guy from CUR who knows a lot about spotting possibilities at CUR...he lives near Hato Airport....I told him to send you an email or to write down something in your guestbook....guess he hasn't done that yet right?

otherwise I could give you his email as well......he has made some great shots at CUR....here are some examples:

less than a dozen jet departures/arrivals per day at Hato. Best time is 1:30 to 3:30 pm. Happy spotting.

Casper is a great guy to hang out with.
That dozen a day will have gone up by now quite a bit. DCA now operates half a dozen or more DC-9s and MD-80s that are very busy on often short routes.
I wish I were flying
