I’m a commercial truck driver and yesterday I was told I would be making a delivery to JFK. No big deal right? I make deliveries all the time to airports. However, When I got to the airport I was told that I need to go on to the airport. See we make deliveries to airports all the time, but we never actually go onto the tarmacs and stuff that is used to service the planes. Immediately, I jumped out of my truck and let my team driver take over so I could capture some pictures for you guys:
This is a beechcraft or Pilatus PC-12? passing a Boeing 737-800
I believe this is an B737 800 or 900
Now this is definitely a beautiful Boeing 737…
And this is when he finally turned toward us or and I started to wonder if he had to request (from Ground) to be pulled from his gate.
Here I came face to face with another Boeing 757
I was allowed to get really close to these planes.
In the center you can see a CL30 Challenger in the distance
Here is a closer look at that Challenger.
In the distance you can see intersection departures and arrivals are in progress because the runways is actually a bit closer to us and there is aircraft inbound.
Lastly, UPS has just rotated and is departing the big apple.
Other than this being my first time at JFK there was definitely a special feeling I got from standing on this airport. It was evident I was standing at the world’s receiving airport.
