F-18 fighter jets arrive at Teterboro Airport
« on: June 08, 2018, 04:07:41 PM »
I heard a rumor that F-18 jets would be flying into Teterboro at around 1:30pm today. I had a 1pm appointment scheduled at HUMC. I got there at 12:45 and explained that I needed to leave around 1:30 to run up to the HUMC roof and try to get shots of the jets. They thought that was pretty cool.

Seven minutes later, we all heard the jets fly overhead - damn!

I was not happy. When I was done, I told them I was going to Teterboro and was determined to get some shots...........and that's exactly what I did at 2:11pm.

The first image is a 3-photo stitch.

 I hadn't heard why F-18s were flying into Teterboro, but the second image shows that the plane on the right is practically in the Walmart parking lot, so that should tell you..............absolutely nothing.

My feeble attempt. The sound was more impressive.

Remember the notice about 3 F-18s departing Teterboro sometime last Friday?

Here's that departure:
