    I hear WRI's fleet is all deployed and therefore they have nothing to share :(

    Back in 2008, hillary hired North American Airlines to run her campaign, but HPN wasn't allowing the 757s in, claiming noise abatement, which is ridiculous. So then she went with USA Jet....on a...

    My point is that there is no "usual" route, as the decision of routes are made each day based on various constraints. And it's not just weather that decides routes...it comes down to wind, fuel...

    A 747 cannot land at HPN. Runway length itself being irrelevant...climb performance due to terrain beyond being the bigger challenge.

    I think they moved on from it just like any other news event. We know what caused it and that's that. Being a big deal in our minds doesn't mean that the rest of the world will follow suit,...

    We prefer that, for spotting photos, that we post on thread per day, per airport. Ongoing threads will be split into days by moderators.

    This "airline" has been around for years, and will likely never go into the air. Some say it is just an investment scheme.

    Keep in mind that not every aircraft/airline is authorized for RNAV departures.

    Whether it crashed or landed, the flight is over, so "had" would be appropriate and I feel doesn't imply anything more than that.

    Your plate gets recording by them in case you lose your ticket. Been there, done that.

    I'm still ok with that more recent EWR note. What I'd like to see most is police treatment of spotters. I understand that, whether spotting is allowed or not, that police will kick us out. I prefer...

    Helicopter Rides Over JFK/LGA?

    I found it to be a little steep but maybe for very unique opportunities, there's an NJ-based helicopter company that flies an R-44 for $800 per hour for 3 passengers. They also have an R-22 with one...

    I'll be that guy and say that the NAA plane is a -300. They never had -200s. :(

    Crazy seeing a plane I've been on so many times sitting in the desert like that.

    World stopped MD-11 flying months ago, and were only operating 1 or 2 747s I believe as of the day of their demise.

    To me, it's about time. I feel bad for the employees but the airline hasn't made...

    If the plane did go airborne and the pilot aborted, there's a good chance he may be losing his job very soon.
