Canarsie Approach Action: Part 1 - 9/5/2020 @ KJFK

Two days ago, I went back to do some final spotting for the summer season at JFK. I happened to get lucky and have the runways switch on me from the 31s to the 13s last second, allowing me to witness the infamous Canarsie Approach in person. This topic will focus only on narrow-body aircraft in chronological order.

A sharp-looking A321neo named after a tasty-sounding “Crème brûlée”.

The Boston Celtics JetBlue A320 on final from Orlando.

Taking Eurowhite to the next level, this Caribbean 737 doesn’t wear the usual hummingbird on the tail.

A slick Delta 737 seconds from landing on 13L.

Quality snaps. Imagine hand polishing that Boston Celtics A320 from top to bottom then it starts raining and a huge flock of birds flies over just as you finish.
