« Reply #33 on: April 20, 2020, 04:30:06 PM »
1. ABC Cleaners

2. Continuing west, my favorite barber shop (right after Kazimir's - I guess George finally threw in the towel)

3. The Anderson St Station

4, 5. Meanwhile, across the street at the laundromat (now open 24 hours a day)

6. At the eastern end of that strip mall

7. A couple of doors east of the tracks

8,9. A short side trip to Holy Trinity Church

10. What's in the box?

11. Undistributed church bulletins - rare as hens' teeth - get 'em while you can

12,13,14. Bruce the Bed King (still not cleared out)

15. The Sears entrance - why are black plastic bags covering the doors?

16. Seen on Main, south of Anderson (if someone says this to you, start running!)

Last night's "Jersey 4 Jersey" broadcast

This was a better show than I thought it was going to be and quite emotional. I think the high point was when Fountains of Wayne performed "Hackensack", dedicating it to former bandmate Adam Schlesinger, who recently died of the Corona virus.

If you can find the show, it's worth watching.

Air Force Thunderbirds and Navy Blue Angels local flyover tomorrow, 4/28/20
« Reply #38 on: April 27, 2020, 01:57:22 PM »
Keep an eye on the sky and have your camera handy tomorrow from 12:00 to 12:40pm as 12 Air Force Thunderbirds and Navy Blue Angels will engage in a criss-crossing flyover of the NYC area (see below Nixle notice). The NJ part of it will include a flyup from Newark that approaches Teterboro.

And here's the notice from Teterboro:

Greetings,

Tomorrow Tuesday April 28th beginning at approximately 12:00 pm, the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and U.S. Navy Blue Angels demonstration squadrons will be conducting a flyover of the NYC metro area. A formation of 12 total aircraft will conduct the flyovers as a collaborative salute from the Air Force and Navy to recognize healthcare workers, first responders, military, and other essential personnel for their efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The planned flyover flight path begins at the George Washington Bridge and will fly south over Manhattan and the Hudson River, crossing over into New Jersey over Hudson County. Once over New Jersey, the formation will turn north and overfly the city of Newark before continuing north towards Teterboro Airport. Adjacent to Teterboro, the formation will then turn and head southeast returning to New York City. Attached is a map provided by the squadrons outlining the route and approximate overflight times.

Feel free to contact the TEB Noise Abatement Office with any questions regarding tomorrows activity.

Blue Angels/Thunderbirds NYC flyover from Hackensack, 4-28-20
« Reply #39 on: April 28, 2020, 04:55:06 PM »
What I wrote for the video:

I could barely see this as I was shooting it because I was standing in too much sun in my living room. If only they waited another hour or two (yeah, right).

Just before they reached the World Trade Center, the focus was lost and not recovered in time, so this is all I got.

Considering that I shot this from home in another state, I'll take it.

By the way - that busy highway that you see at the bottom about 20 seconds in is Route 80 where it crosses the Hackensack River.



About the pix:

A little less haze and later in the day would have been ideal, but at least it wasn't yesterday (rainy, cloudy).

I started off doing video on the first leg from north of the GWB and down through Manhattan, but could NOT maintain a focus and tossed it.

1. By the time I switched to stills, they were approaching the World Trade Center and then hopped over to Jersey, which I could barely see.

2. As they headed down to Newark, I got this shot that shows people watching from the roof of a residential building on State St.

3. Here's my definitive Hackensack picture of the event. The planes had come back north and made a right somewhere near Teterboro and headed east towards Manhattan, passing a couple of Main St projects.

4,5. Heading north over Queens. For a little variety, I took the color out of #5. After that, they vanished for 15-20 minutes as they flew over Long Island and then headed over to Westchester County and the Bronx.

6. I finally saw them well north of the GWB and got this shot that includes the 395 Main project at the bottom and the trees of Teaneck.

7,8,9. The last 3 shots are sequential as they fly by The Modern towers complex in Fort Lee. Since 395 Main wasn't adding much, I cut it out of the last one. After that, I finished up by shooting the below video.

Throughout the shots, you can see 4 or so dark spots that probably were TV news choppers and one chase plane bringing up the rear. I wanted to get this post up fast before you see the blow-you-away images on the news tonight.   ;)

Today's NJ flyover
« Reply #43 on: May 12, 2020, 04:09:19 PM »
They were right on time, but weren't all together. Three F-16s and a refueling tanker jet came by in two groups at 11:50 and 11:52am.

Using binoculars, the first thing I saw in the distance was a large plane and a tiny one making a turn.........maybe in the Teterboro Airport vicinity? Then I lost them...........maybe they flew low in salute? A minute later, I saw them again coming in my direction, a little to my right. They were moving quickly, so it was hard to keep them in focus.

I got off a couple of shots - the first photo was the only decent one of those - and as they went by my south-facing window, I got one or two more, the best one of the day being the second image.

Two minutes later, the other two jets came by, but they were too small and fast to get any shots off.

I really wish I had my roof access for this.
