DELTA_717_N935AT_ATL_1013ZF_JP_small.jpg2532 viewsI am pleased to share with you this once in a lifetime photo showcasing Delta's entire McDonnell Douglas narrow-body fleet, which includes: 717 (MD95), DC9-50, MD88, MD90. A tremendous amount of logistics and manpower went into making this photo a reality, in addition to the fact that the minute the photo shoot ended, 3 of the 4 airplanes were immediately towed to the terminal for their next flight assignments. I was honored to be invited to photograph this event, thank you Delta Air Lines!

I arrived on the site a couple of hours after the crash and PAPD/FDNY were still putting out the smoldering cargo inside. Luckily 3 crewmembers and 2 pax survived. More photos of the site to come in the future. My friend Dave Kaufman actually witnessed this aborted takeoff from the control tower, perhaps he can add more in the comments section.

aamove1.jpg1223 viewsA lot of preparation work in addition to lots of volunteer time was put into making the move across the street a reality. American Airlines, Dade County, Odebrecht Construction, T.Y. Lin Engineering all collaborated on a class-A job. The students of George T. Baker Aviation school are the very fortunate recepients of this 6 million dollar MD80 jet that will hopefully inspire students to make aviation a career!

1994jpcolga.jpg1206 viewsThis photo was taken inside one of American Airlines' maintenance hangars in LaGuardia. The MD80 was brought in there for post-crash investigation and as is usually done after an accident, hide it from the passengers flying into and out of the airport. When I walked inside the airplane, about half way down the fuselage I felt a hump under my feet, that is where the fuselage buckled as the airplane ran off the end of the runway (I believe it was runway 31?), coming to rest on a dike. There were no fatalities luckily. For those that know me these days, obviously I don't wear my hair like that anymore haha

wtctowerair702jfk.jpg1199 viewsNot a pleasant photo but one that I want people to see. Shown on the former Tower Air ramp are vehicles that were damaged on 9/11. I was in Manhattan (at the time I worked for an investment firm in Midtown) on 9/11 and my friends at the PA and JFK-ATC were working that day, a day we'll never, ever forget. May the victims rest in peace and may their families be well.

The smoke is still there as this historical B-24 broke it's nose gear and skidded down the runway until it stopped at this location

AEROPOSTA_747-100_N747PA_MIA_0193_JP_small.jpg854 viewsThis is a very special photo for me. Taken during my first ever trip to Miami (January 1993), and uploaded 20 years later (January 2013), this beautiful Aeroposta 747, named "Juan Trippe" (he founded Pan am in 1927) and registered N747PA flares to land on runway 9R. This 747, the second ever built, was operated by Pan Am from 1970 until Pan Am's unfortunate demise in 1991

air2000757cfunight.jpg619 viewsWhat an amazing place! Photo taken from my hotel room balcony. The pink house in the foreground, that house is rented out to aviation tourists from all over the world. My hotel has no air conditioning and on weekend nights especially, airplanes come in and out ALL NIGHT LONG. Patio door stays open due to heat, but then takeoff noise comes into the room and has no where to go so it goes through your head then outside again. No wonder it is only 40 Euro per night! Not sure if I'll take my wife there..

IFLCONVAIR_BWCOLOR_MIA0410.jpg480 viewsI made a significant change to this photo; I left the airplanes in color but changed everything else in the photo to black and white. I chose to do this because here is a propeller airplane from the 1940's, and behind it is an ultra-modern propeller driven airplane from the 90's, so the contrast in airplanes begs for contrast with the airplanes and their environment in this photo. I know that some of you will really love this!

This is the newest technology for ATC. Every airplane on the field's transponder is being picked up by radar and reflected on the screen. If any airport vehicles breach a runway, they will be visible on this screen. Note that areas in red reflect closed taxiways (construction/repair). At the time this photo was taken JFK was operating on the 4's and there was light snow falling (RVR4000).

April 29th 2016 is the last night the airplane would ever spend on an airport ramp, the next morning it was moved over to the museum across the street

At first I had to take another look because I could not believe what just happened! Apparently the left main gear collapsed. Better on taxiway off the runway than when making contact on landing that's for sure!
