So, uh, I think I *may* have come across racers today. I do not have actual 100% confirmation that it was TAR, but this is what I saw:~1:15 PM, 6/24/06
49th between 6th and Rock. Center, right outside one of the NBC entrances (not that they were going in).All female African-American team
(as mentioned in that thread that was linked to on the last page)
Getting out of a cab that was from Newark (which made it stand out more from the traditional NYC cabs).
Two crew with them - one boom mic operator, one cameraman.
The girls got out of the cab and asked a local for directions - the mic operator then had to get the person to sign a release and the team looked very impatient while they were waiting.
The biggest tip-off for me was that one of the crew had a yellow "K" tag, and having just re-watched Season 7, it looked exactly like the tags that everyone has on their bags
I was on a flight from Paris to New York on June 24 with 3 TAR teams - 2 young guys, 2 african american women and a man & woman
At ticketing, my friend asked the two african american women
what tv show it was for.
One of them answered, "You don't need to worry about it, just move out of the way". We wound up sitting in the bulkhead between business class and coach, near the bathrooms.
The man from the man/woman team
came over to us and asked if we knew where The News Building
was in New York City - he even showed us the clue.
We tried our best to help him out - even gave him some money. We asked him lots of questions, most of which he couldn't divulge.
Air France flight 8600 from Charles DeGalle to JKF. Departed 6/24 @ 825am
While walking thru airport to get to the right terminal I spotted two rugged-looking young guys, a camera man and what looked like a production person.
When we got to the terminal and checked in, the agent said they had overbooked the flight and would we mind being bumped to a later flight in exchange for $150 voucher, which we agreed to.
However, the agent said we might still be on that flight and to check back later.
We went to cash our vouchers at the ticketing office and the two young guys were there with a stack of passports, which I assume is for themselves and the crew that travels with them.
When we went back to see if we were going to be on the first flight, we saw the two guys
in line to check in and that's when we saw the african american women
with their own cameraman.
When we were called up by an agent, my friend walked in front of the camera, asked her question and got rebuffed.
We found out that we were going to be on the first flight and after checking our baggage, left walking in front of the camera again.
From what I could tell, each team has their own camera man and sound guy.
Plus there's someone that looks like a production person, but I'm not sure if there's one for every team.
It's difficult to tell from the pictures that have been posted if they are the ones I saw - the african american women for sure, the man/woman team in blue is a possibility
