Not the best quality but it's a very rare shot. On approach to 4R is F-BTSC, the Concorde that crashed on July 25, 2000 along with another aircraft that is no longer around. Egypt Air's B767-300, SU-GAP seen departing 4L bound for LAX. Also Egypt Air's Boeing 767 crashed on 31st October 1999 in the Atlantic ocean after departure from this J. F. Kennedy Airport, That's one very weird coincidence !

I rate this as excellent because the photographer has captured two airliners that doesn't exist anymore (may they all rest in peace).

Very rare photo, two ill-fated aircraft pictured together, in the air, and very close. May they rest in peace.

Just like everyone else who sees this amazing and shocking photo I can't believe that two planes that are both gone now from horrible accidents. R.I.P.....
