89 viewsAirline: Aer LingusType: 747-100Registration: EI-ASIAirport: JFKCity: QueensState: New YorkCountry: USADate Taken: September 1990It's hard to describe the love I have for these photos. This photo, taken 22 years ago was on cheap Ektachrome slide film, developed at the local drug store. I was able to restore it to its full glory after massive color correction, scratch and dirt removal- lots of work but well worth it. This beautiful Aer Lingus 747-100 just touched down on runway 31R and went long, to the delight of this photographer (most airplanes turn off earlier and this type of photo is not possible)

Please note that I did not alter this photo in any way other than slight color correction, resize and sharpen

Unfortunately, the weather was not very cooperative, nor was the arrival time (12pm in August- as bad as it gets for sun angles), however, given the historical nature of the photo, any timing or natual shortcomings are all forgiven...

87 viewsAirline: Air FranceType: ConcordeRegistration: F-BVFBAirport: JFKCity: QueensState: New YorkCountry: USADate Taken: May 1999This may seem like just another window shot but it's not. That window, while hard to tell from the photo is a tiny window in F-BVFB, Air France Concorde. With my friend Joe Wolf who worked for Northwest at the time, I flew F-BVFB from JFK to Detroit (yes, I said Detroit). What's really special about this particular shot however as our ATC and PA friends at JFK will tell you, a 4L Concorde departure is extremely rare. Typically the Concorde departures would utilize 31L/13R or 22R, primarily for noise abatement.

You were able to stay up there all day long and take photos. There was a snack bar type restaurant up there- it was just great. Eventually they put up a taller fence (the one you see in this pic) making taxi-by shots difficult (but still good for landing shots), and then the place went out of business and don't know what's there now
