But it may not take coercive suggestion to affect a person’s memories. The testimony of eyewitnesses is notoriously subject to suggestion and to error, frequently with dire effects on the wrongfully accused. 6 With the advent of DNA testing, it is now possible to find, in many cases, an objective corroboration or refutation of such testimony, and Schacter notes that “a recent analysis of forty cases in which DNA evidence established the innocence of wrongly imprisoned individuals revealed that thirty-six of them (90 percent) involved mistaken eyewitness identification.”
I was fortunate enough to have lived on the 2 mile final to 31R @ JFK from 1966 – 1979. I was just a kid who couldn’t keep his eyes out of the sky. I’d drive my bike down to Rockaway Blvd near the numbers for 22L and sit there for hours. I became so addicted to airplanes that I was able to ID them by sound. I remember seeing almost every airplane in this fabulous montage. Needless to say, in 1977 I soloed at age 16…got my Private at 17…and have flown and owned many different types of aircraft ever since. Had it not been for the fact that I grew up near JFK and catching the flying bug early…I doubt I’d be a pilot today. I chose to run my family business instead of flying for the airlines…but flying is flying. Anyway,these fantastic photos bring back amazing memories of those happy old days of yesteryear. Boy do I miss them!Great job!!!
