Hmm.. On the last pic (the AAL MD-88 taking off), what's the little blob next to ESB? Could it be on the visual for 13?

Thanks guys.

Yes, Sam, we'll have to hit all remaining spots!

CPH-R: Not sure.. that one, yes, perhaps.. but there is some EWR traffic in some of the pix..A Continental 767-400 in one or two of the others I think.

Because I don't have a camera, I live my photography life vicariously through Tom Turner. lol.

I show him the dock, "Shore Front PArk" and this cliff where his newest pics were taken, and he gets the glory! :-p Damn him!

But seriously, Tom is an outstanding photographer, someone able to cover all aspects of talent within the hobby and not just someone that is only good because of money or because of knowing people. I am proud to share my spots with him, and shooting with him is like playing hockey with Mark Messier.

If anyone else want access to the spots that I showed Tom, please email me at pdernerjr@hotmail.com.

Chris Sheldon, Joe Pries and a few others don't seem to be interested since they don't email me since I offered them VIP passes! lol

Phil, i once emailed you after a conversation with Tom regarding a slide show but you never replied. I'm sure Sam will appreciate all the spots you will show him next time he's in town, including any brand new "exclusives"  Big grin

Phil,

Can't speak for Joe but I do know some prefer a shooting location that doesn't require a 800mm lens like these:

Thanks for the offer of the "exclusive" spot but we'll leave those for the pro like Tom and Sam who have the big glass. I'm not ready to handle a spot like that this early in my career...  Big grin

Well, I can certainly understand that.

The ofgfer stands for anyone who wants to have a beer at my spots. Those don't require a shoulder-fired zoom lens.  Big grin

Joe, I never got that email.  Sad. My email is pdernerjr@hotmail.com. I'd love to hear from you.

Mike

Those slide spot are also very good. if they do not need ramp/airside access, I am very happy to learn those exclusives from you  Smile

Phil,

Yes, we gonna hooked up next time and show me a few of those 2000mm lens spot and I will give you plenty of glory and you will be very famous through my email correspondents.

Joe,

Hopefully I will return Sept to NY. July will be Columbus 2003AI show. but if time allowed I will come over from Columbus to see Concorde. Very tempted to go on again in Sept.  Big grin

CPH-R:

That's definately not an aircraft on the Visual to 13, as they haven't used the visual to 13 in a long long time, and that aircraft is too far behind the ESB to be inbound to LGA. My guess is that it's an inbound or outbound EWR flight, as it looks too low for the LDA or ILS to RWY22.

When did they stop using that? I was in NY waay back in October, and on at least 2 occasions I saw aircrafts flying over Mid Manhattan heading for LGA.

CPH-R:

They still ocassionally use it, but usually right after or before bad weather, or if the winds are pretty strong in that direction...

The aircraft you see flying over NYC are for the most part inbound LGA aircraft, but are heading to RWY22. They pretty much make a 180 degree turn over the bronx or westchester and then either fly the ILS to RWY22 or the LDA to RWY22....

Actually, That day, Toma nd I saw a US Airways ERJ invent his own "Runway 4 Visual Approach" as he cut the ILS line and banked a hard right to line himself up. HE didn't make it and ended up going around, passing PERFECTLY in front of the skyline that we had been grabbing shots in front of all day. Tom unfortunately missed that shot, as it was somethign we were not expecting.

But as for that AA MD-80 pic, that aircraft is certainly EWR traffic, I believe right after takeoff. From this view, planes on River Visual 13 Approach would be even at the height of the bottom of the antenna on the ESB.

And JCXP,

They used RV 13 a few times in the past few weeks, although there had been a few month gap that they didn'ty use it, I have since it a few times recently. :p

Also, I think the most common "post-storm" approach for LGA is Localizer 31, because of the winds that a storm leaves behind, and once it clears even more, then they just go to EV 31.

ILS 4 or ILS 22 are the bad weather approaches, but 4 is more common for it.

Jcxp is right about LGA traffic over Manhattan being for LDA 22 or ILS 22 approach. 13 traffic usually goes more directly over the Hudson River.
