Newark Airport's terminal gates were mostly vacant on April 26
as Eric Sampson was cleared to fly a low approach to Runway 4R.
The skies were mostly empty of aircraft as well because of the
near shutdown of commercial airline traffic as the coronavirus
pandemic was peaking. Eric and other general aviation pilots
took the opportunity to give New York Approach controllers
some work to do by requesting, and often getting, approaches
at EWR, LGA and JFK. Pilots took care to not touch down because
of the big landing fee bill they could get in the mail.

On Tuesday, April 28, 2020, EAA Chapter 501's Eric Sampson organized the
"rescue flight" of nine dogs in three aircraft, flown from Ocean City Maryland
to Lincoln Park, NJ for handoff to local shelters that were nearly empty.
Stay-at-home rules during the coronavirus pandemic has prompted many
families to adopt cats and dogs for company. The calendar photo was taken
just as Eric and Phoebe DeSantis had landed at Lincoln Park Airport.
Phoebe holds one of the six pups that they carried aboard.
The other five disembarked shortly thereafter.
