Hi everybody, I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Ben and I'm located in the northern suburbs of NYC. I've been lurking for a year or so, but just noticed that I hadn't posted anything, so I figured it would be best to introduce myself. I am a lifelong lover of anything mechanical that flies, though I have become far more interested over the past few years. A while back I heard Phil (who I had known of for years since we were both members of a couple of NYC subway forums) on the Airplane Geeks Podcast and that turned me on to nycaviation.com, as well as to planespotting. I have recently started shooting more than the occasional C-17 turning final for SWF, and made my first trip to shoot at JFK earlier this month. So anyway I just wanted to say hello.
