JFK Nov. 13

Thu Nov 10, 2005 6:24 am

Hello everyone,
I'm coming to NY for the weekend (from Boston) and thought it would be cool if I could go spotting at JFK on Sunday 11/13. But I'll be honest, I have no prior experience and no "proper" equipment. I'd like to get a feel for it and enjoy some take-offs and landings in good company. Is there anyone from the area who is willing to share their knowledge with someone who really wants to learn? Let me know!!
Ilya

That's a good place to start. They have spotting maps for JFK under "Tools" to help you find locations and how to get there.

The forums ar ea great place to ask the locals questions and to maybe set up a meet.  Smile

Enjoy the city!

I'd love to join though I don't think that'd fly over well with the family. I'll be departing on the 13th at 6:10pm which means no light. If you guys will be around the airport at 3 or later let me know and I'll try to make it out there.

Take care,

Matt

Gothca, well if the wx is good I may go out. Keep posted here and we will see.

Since we're already on the topic....

I'm planning to head to NY on the 14th through the 16th. Definitely looking at doing some JFK spotting on the 15th. I'll be staying in the ol' neighborhood in Astoria/LIC so some quick trips to LGA during my 3 days will be a must.

Anyone free for some JFK on the 15th?

Hey Rich,

Another anetter, MiCorazonAzul, is thinking about Non-Reving up here on the 15th. If we are there spotting you should join us!  yes

He would fly in sometime in the morning. When I hear from him I will let you know.

That's cool....I'm non-revving in as well, expect to get into LGA on the morning of the 14th. If anyone is in the area, we can do some LaGuardia spotting that day.

I'll keep watching this thread for updates....

I'm taking my mom, sister, and brother to New York for the weekend. If I got up and left to go spotting I don't think they'd be to pleased.

Thanks again,

Matt
