    That is a 1963 Sikorsky UH-34D that a group of dedicated volunteers worked on for 5 and a Half years out in Cutchogue (Long Island) to get it airborne. Just a great
    story and it was very cool finally seeing it fly on Sunday. For me that was the first time.

    I was playing around with some panoramas, some of which involved the planes. This one didn't...just after the huge downpour on Thursday, after the first practice takeoff...

    Shoot first, ask questions later.

    Great shots (as usual). Love the shot shot of the Angel C-130 making the turn to come in for the Fly-by. When I was at
    FRG by the movie theaters on Sunday that SOB (LOL) came tearing across Farmingdale/Bethpage low level then made a
    turn just like the one in the picture with the wings pointed straight down for the R14 fly-by!! Just amazing flying of that big aircraft!!

    Gerard, I saw that too, I was on Pinelawn heading home, that wicked 60 degree bank to port just off the ground. NICE!
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.
