It's always fun having a plane land just in front of you while you are on the NJT.  The U2 jet added a bit of unexpected wowness.

 

The jet I saw was slightly smaller then the A320.  I suspect the A320 would be for the crew, etc.  The jet I saw looked more appropriate for the band and a few more to travel in luxury.  It didn't necessarily seem appropriate for a hockey team, however a little research does show that the Toronto Maple Leafs were playing the NY Rangers that night.  Would a 3 PM landing give them enough time to get to MSG and do everything they needed to do for a 7 PM start?

Maybe, probably, but could cut it a little close if any traffic . . . how far is the hockey arena from the airport?

Was this what you saw?  This is what was parked in Dublin last year and definitely not a 320...more like a small DC9.th_DSC04904.jpg?t=1287626996

Oh . . . not quite as exciting then
