    Good call. After a looong pre-flight/warmup they taxied away from the Museum at 1:36 and 10 minutes later they roared
    down Runway 3-2 into the beautiful blue skies. Pretty cool to get a chance to see this aircraft up close which you usually would
    not get around here. As it taxied to 3-2 it was a definite traffic stopper on New Highway.

    Great shots guys.
    Interesting that this E-2 was from the USS Harry Truman. Last Aug 07 an E-2 crashed off the deck of the Truman
    while launching at night. All 3 crew members aboard were killed and sadly their bodies were never recovered and an
    adequate explanation for the cause of the crash was never reached.

    Was just curious if anyone knew if NG is planning a similiar event again this year at FRG ??
    Sure hope because it was too bad the Prowler and Growler had to cancel last year !! :(

    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.
