D.C. And NYC Boyz......

Fri Nov 21, 2003 3:04 pm

I have a challange for you. Get a pic of this mystery carrier.

http://www.africa-ata.org/taa.htm

Supposedly they began service to both IAD and JFK last month and are IAH bound next month. However, I find it a bit odd with all of those shutters clicking in and around Dulles and Kennedy this this bird has not been photographed. This leads me to suspect that this may be a "paper carrier" that never got off the ground. However if it does exist, I know that one or more of you guys are up to the challange and will get it on film or CF.

Good hunting,

Thomas

Thomas, could be wrong but I *think* they are using a leased Air Atlanta Icelandic B747 for the JFK run. Not 100% sure. If it's true, then the NYBoyz already shot Air Atlanta  Smile

Thomas,

Us DC Boyz (and Menz  Smile/happy/getting dizzy) have never seen an Air Atlanta 747 at IAD so we are drewling! Service here starts on 8 Dec according to the article so we'll be on the lookout.

Thanks for the heads up!

Hey V-man,

Indeed a D10 and a I picked up a great deal ($750) on a D60 as well. Have not done any AV shooting with them yet however.
