In the 5+ years that I've been writing this blog, I have never seen a 787 up close until today. Living and working in NY doesn't afford me many opportunities to see one and I had to be content with pictures that others have taken until today. So I got my cherry popped so to speak!
LOT 006 from Warsaw to JFK flew directly over my house here in Long Island (I'm fortunate/unfortunate to live right under one of the main approaches to JFK) and using flightradar24.com I was able to time my picture perfectly even though I didn't have the use a digital SLR, I was able to see my first 787 in real life and somewhat up close as LOT 6 (ZA272, LN 86, SP-LRC) flew final into JFK as LOT re-started 787 flights for the first time since the grounding. Above is my picture as it flew directly over my house just a few minutes ago.
