Carl, I think you are in range of them.

Default Whit and I flew the VFR Corridor

This past weekend, I flew my RV-4 from WBW to N43 to Pick up Whit while his RV-4 was down getting new brake lines. He flew me from N43 (in my plane) to breakfast at N40. From there we swapped seats and decided to fly the VFR corridor in NYC. Whit is a 767 FO at United Airlines. He's very used to the view only 4,000 higher on the visual into JFK. We also flew the coastline at 400' in the small area that allows you less than 5 miles away from JFK without talking to anyone. Pretty awesome experience and we've already began to plan a four ship RV-4 formation flight up the corridor in the spring. We will surely share those pictures when the time comes!

That was on the new iphone11 pro. I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who loves cockpit pictures! This one below was a few weeks ago when the leaves were changing in NEPA:

Very cool Devin thanks for sharing! I haven't flown over the Hudson for a month and already missing it.

VLAD I've recently moved back to PA from SC and I've heard your name thrown around at a bunch of the airports I've been into recently. Let's get together soon! I am close by and flying ALL the time!

Perfect! My aircraft is 1500 nm away but we have a club Cessna to putt around.

Default So awesome!

What an incredible view. For those of you who fly this on a regular basis, please don't take if for granted. This is definitely on the must do list.
