Note: In for a make over this 757 boasts a very low total time on it's airframe. The medicinal condition of the APU is certain testimony to this fact. She now flies proudly for one particular American Capitalist.
Note: N661JB leads the pack of revenue advisaries for a photo shoot. All three of these planes were filled with passengers as these were scheduled flights...Delta held up the works with a very late arrival.
Note: Late day departure had me fooled...this 787 no sooner applied power and off it went...It appeared as though it only used up 2,000ft of runway before rotating. Either a light load or a lot of power...

Note: Climbing into less than Tropical conditions today...gusts to 60 MPH, "Florida" was given the unusual straight out departure from Long Islands ISP south bound. They typically are steered east towards Westhampton Beach before venturing...
Note: Almost Art...the pristine four week old winglet on this sparkling American 737. Aviation Partners blended winglets aside from performance, sure add aesthetically to an airframe. Planes appear naked without them.
Note: This rare arrival at Kennedy airport whose timing was a disappointment to local spotters was too dark for effective photos. The gagle of spotters did however give the security agency something to do. Sporting a rather oxidized paint...
Note: N671US, Deltas 747 and pals, 767 and 757 all gated, ready to go. The 747 Vertical fin size always impresses me...note the internal structure as evident by the rivet lines and seams on the 747 fin when compared to the 67 and 57...
Note: JetBlue has signed on with the New York Jets as is readily obvious by this presentation photo. Sorry about not including the Cheerleaders in the shot...you had to look at them with your eyes...not through a lens.
