Spotting a Community Member - 8/18/19 @ JFK

Hey IFC! I went to the Idlewild Park near John F. Kennedy International Airport a few days ago to do do some spotting. The park offers views of all aircraft landing at JFK, with most passing just 300 feet above you. I also saw a Turkish 777 onboard with @Doonies from Istanbul. This trip marked the first time I have ever seen the Air Italy A330 and the Delta A220.

Don’t get me wrong, I loved the plane shots, but the cat is definitely the best part.

It was probably one of the hardest landings I’ve had lol. But it was an awesome flight and it made it more fun I guess haha.
