I've been meaning to post about my visit to JFK
...thanks for the tips. I made it out to Bayswater SP
. Great spot for 13R departures. Unfortunately, the skies got overcast during my stay there and while I saw 2 A380 departures (Korean and Lufthansa), the lighting was not the best. I had thought about returning during the latter part of the week, but it was a long drive from Greenport! The parking lot in front of Panerra did not work out so well since aircraft were departing on 13R and 13L and were also backlit in the afternoon.
I imagine Bayswater would be great for 31L and 4L arrivals! By the way, did not run into anyother spotters--just some friendly folks who were out there fishing. It was quite thrilling for me to see some thing different than Delta (at CVG
); the international tails sure make it interesting.
Thanks again for the helpful hints and tips on the locations. Will definetly stop by when I'm back on LI
