Hey I was thinking that we have a NYC meetup in the fall possibly around Thanksgiving. It would be great spotting and shooting at JFK and LGA? Anyone up for it!

I had the pleasure of seeing NYC this past monday and really wanna go back this fall. I was thinking of coming back up for a weekend in early November but I could move it back a couple weeks.  Smile I'm game for now. AA has some pretty cheap roundtrip fares from MCO. $115  Big thumbs up

they're not that big a problem as long as all you're doing is spotting. CALMLY explian to them what you're doing. it wouldn't hurt to call the port authority around the time you are planning to go out.

now, about joining you all i'd really love to. there are just a few little problems in my way. firstly, it's thanksgiving so no one is going to want to swap days with me so that i can have the time off. and second, i plan to rake in the OT while i can. can't wait 'till the snow hit. YAY!! i get to de-ice! Big grin

I agree with it being in October (Great time of year) also. If a set date comes in, then I'll be sure to run it by the PHL gang. After all, we really wanna see JFK Big grin!

People make airplanes fly. I would like to spot the people who visit this site and make it all happen. Pick a date and I will try to be there. On average, my birthday falls on every fourth Thankgiving. I would be happy to join you.

Btw, do we get election day off of school? Cuz the meet could always be then! If not we can go for some day in Oct, and if not that then THANKSGIVING would be the other option!

May I recommend that we make it a weekend deal like the folks in D.C. did a couple weeks ago. We could do Saturday and Sunday. If people need to leave after one day, they could but the rest of us could do Sunday as well. My plans were to go to NYC in November or October perferably on a Friday night and return late Sunday night. That way I won't miss any school. I'll only miss one day of work too. So that isn't too bad. More than worth it.

That sucks! We get election day off. Anyway quite a few people agree with Halloween weekend as the official date for the meet! Which is Sat Oct 30th and Sun Oct 31st. So before we make the FINAL FINAL decision, is their anyone opposed to this. Speak now or forever hold your peace!

I'll try and find a way to get to NY from Boston... maybe Acela?

Oh... and it probably would be better if we did it in mid-October.

It is okay with me right now. There are a few schedules that will not be finalized until late September. Why not go with those dates and see what happens. Please work out the other details, like times and meeting places. I am not familiar with JFK. Wish we could do this at EWR.

EWR is not a huge international airport as is JFK!! Also after spending a few hours at JFK we could take the short ride to LGA! Also depending on where people are coming from we can analyze that and establish a single meeting place! For example Plainview Park if we want to start at LGA first or Terminal 4 if we want to spot at JFK first!

Now that you've got a set date....start a new thread with something like "Big JFK/LGA spotting meeting - 10/30 and 10/31" in the title. That ought to get the attention of the "big NYC spotters".  Big thumbs up

Good luck to you with all the planning. If I'm in town that weekend, I'm up for a get-together.

I know that the PHL spotters are chomping at the bit to come visit JFK, so don't forget to include them.
