Southpaw- thanks for the directions, next time I'm home if the weather is good I'll definitely make a drive down. I grew up in Syosset and got to see some planes close up if they were landing on 22L & R if there were storms coming in over NJ
I vividly remember seeing a KLM 747 down low enough to where I could read the tail clearly, and Concorde blasting over many times- who knew the Connie would outlast her!
Potomac, Great site thanks!
Tom in NO, long time no see how are ya?
on to subject-
I did my Airport agent training in Building 67 at JFK
, after working in there for about a month you hardly notice the planes on final anymore, although they get close enough to see people looking down at you! Building 67 (and the KLM/Polar Air hanger next door) were the last 2 buildings aircraft had to clear before landing...Always neat to see them making that steep Canarsie turn before locking onto the ILS....
..uh, we'll need that to live......
