Last year I flew into New York’s JFK airport from Dallas/Fort Worth in American’s 737-800. Upon landing, I was surprised that we were flying the famous Canarsie Approach!
Here’s a video of the landing:
If you’ve never heard of the Canarsie approach, it’s basically a final last-minute right bank into the JFK airport:
Here are some photos of the last-minute right turn into JFK, taken from the video:
In the last picture, you can see the British Airways A318 that arrived from London City.
Now, I’ve got a question. How rare is this approach? It doesn’t seem to be too common, from what I’ve read online. Does anyone track JFK’s landings?
