Flying To New York Via The Expressway Visual

From Jeppesen/New York Times 9/26/08


I did a lot of traveling early in my career, flying often between New York City and Chicago. I distinctly remember the sharp left turn described in this New York Times article about pilots and Shea Stadium (To Pilots, Shea Is Less Ballpark Than Landmark). Truth be told, the big left turn is a bit scary as it's a sharp turn at low altitude; if you're sitting on the left hand side of the plane and can see the airport, you wonder how the plane will manage to get lined up in time to land.
