    Julie Clark will be flying at the Jones Beach Airshow this year and back on May 7th
    in 1964 her father was the Captain of the Pacific Airline Flight 773 that crashed!!
    As per the story below posted by Phil here on NYCAviation:

    1964 – Pacific Air Lines Flight 773 crashes in San Ramon California after a suicidal passenger shoots both pilots in-flight. Francisco Gonzales, having financial and marital problems, purchased a .357 Smith & Wesson revolver and even notified friends and family that he’d be dying on May 6th or May 7th. He purchased a $105,000 insurance policy at Stockton Airport (SCK) before boarding the Fokker F-27 Friendship (N2770R) bound for Reno, Nevada. A few minutes after reaching their assigned altitude of 5,000ft, a sound is heard on the radio and the aircraft disappears from radar. The final transmission is determined by investigators to be the First Officer saying “Skipper’s shot. We’ve been shot. I was trying to help.” All 44 on the aircraft perish. The daughter of the the Captain, Julie Clark, goes on to become one of the first female airline Captains herself for Hughes Airwest and Northwest Airlines, and then going on to become an aerobatic pilot.
    WINNER!!! Please sent me your Airshow itinarary and times I should NOT call you ie. (do not call after 10PM on sat) and what days you will be by FRG. Friday evening would probably be best but Airshow weekend is very difficult to time. Oh, and no streaking or sitting on top of the Canadian F-18 and waving a 10 gallon hat like Slim Pickens in Dr. Strangelove

    I just put in for Thur & Fri off from work. We had a nice little meet up going at the practice show last year. I hope the Blues fly Friday as they didn't a few years ago.

    Just over 2 weeks away!!! :D

    Just to get everyone in the mood (not that everyone isn't already) for the show, here is my video of the last time I saw the Blues, in Florida last March.

    The protesters strike back!

    The significance of Memorial Day is to honor those who have made the supreme sacrifice in the service of their country. I find it offensive that the Bethpage FCU would host such a grotesque exhibition of military might that does nothing to memorialize the fallen and glorifies war. Honor the dead! Heal the wounded! End War!
    These people never fail.

    I do respect that they have an opinion though.

    Well since it is next week there shouldnt be any problems. Where are they closing it from? Conklin to 109? Or from
    Sheltair to 109 along the cemetary/runway road? Hopefully the are paving the shoulders on both sides. That would
    be great.
