Thu Jun 07, 2001 1:39 pm

Tonight I was just browsing through some pictures and came across this one. (Listed Below) Its a pic of a Continental 767-400 at JFK. Now look above the tail.....what do you see? This pic isn't mine, so if it is a prank, its not mine.

A) That's a blimp.

B) That's Newark, not Kennedy. A CO 767-400 at JFK truly would by a UFO.

Based on the white and blue colors, it is the MetLife blimp which is a common sight in the NYC area during the summer and autumn months, especially around the time of the U.S. Open.

I can't see the UFO, all I see is the blimp.  Sad

It's the Metlife blimp - there's a lot of blue on the side.

Also note the Ray Catena billboard on the Turnpike - no doubt you're in Jersey.
