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.

This cat decided to take a nap next to me while I was spotting. Solid 12/10

Those are great pics, spotting a community member is cool, how did you know he was on the plane?

That cat is super cute.


The last photo is definitely the best catch.

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


The cat is by far the best spot of the day!


Floof airways is now my favorite airline.


We coordinated beforehand.

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.
