KJFK Runway 13L Parkway Visual Arrivals

Hello IFC Community! Yesterday, I got the opportunity to go do a bit of plane spotting. KJFK was actively using Runway 13R for departures & Runway 13L for arrivals (the famous Parkway Visual Approach). I went as the sun was setting at around 7:30pm EST and I used my iPhone 8 to take pictures. Hope you enjoy, and apologies for the substandard quality.

Nice shots @Transport_Hub! The parkway Visual approach offers some great photography. My personal favorite was the Sun Country 737.

If a Delta a320 is 28 years old, it must’ve been an ex-Northwest Plane. My surprise is how the FedEx is much younger than the a320. But Great Shots Transport Hub. πŸ‘Œ

I bet it used to be from Northwest Airlines.

Yes Sir! N309US used to be operated by Northwest Airlines then was transferred over to Delta during the merger.

Nope! I took these shots at the JFK Airport Central Taxi Hold on 148 street. Click here for the precise location.

Oh wow those planes must’ve been really low

The fact that the MD-11F is younger, and much younger than the A320, is kinda disturbing
