From a Flight on Sunday, March 24, 2013...

When contacting me about a particular photo(s),
always refer to the Post Date, Photo Number and General Description.
Note that photos in my older posts are not numbered and thus you must
manually count and ID them so I know which photo you are referring to.

[Photo #1 is always at the top of the posting]

This latest selection of Aerial Photos from late March 2013 is a whopper,
and because of this I have grouped them into (3) categories:
central New Jersey, City of Trenton and Seaside Heights, the latter two in NJ as well...
First let's begin with a tour of central New Jersey with a slight detour into Pennsylvania.
