Keep your eyes out for the KAL 744 PAX to Cargo conversions. I was at JFK this evening at 1am to try to get another aircraft and came accross the KAL.
Yes yes I know it SUX..please be gentle! My Job is to only inform :)
After photographing the KAL 744 I came accross some speed racer type punk guys, girls (fast and the furious types) whatever that is kind of people blocking Rockaway blvd east bound (adjacent to KAL and Fedex cargo). There was about 30 or so of these people blocking the 2 or3 lanes!. I couldn't even get by as cars were everywere and intentionally blocked the highway as I made my way on there GRASS one of the guys had enough nerve to ask me to "Stop, they are about to race" engines reving and tires screeeching....People were looking like I was the strange one - I was like " I'm about to get a classic beat down by a roudy mob of 30 shiftless people at 1am in the morning. I got up enough nerve to ask one guy what they are doing and he said drag racing.
I took a few shots (STUPID ME) and got the hell outta that place!
You would think with all the crap us locals photogs get at JFK they would be on these kind on people...amazing. Where were the cops then?
And NO I wasnt participating!!!! :)
