    KPBI 3/14/2010

    Spent around 5 hours at PBI today - it was busy with biz-jets all day - very busy today. I have masses of editing to do from today - but - I thought I'd share a few from today. It's been a long time since I was at PBI - the runways have changed - they are now 10L/10R east bound instead of 9L/9R and obviously 28L/R for the reverse. The other change is the cross runway used to be 13/31 - it is now 14/32 - the earth has moved :)

    This BBJ taxied out just after I go there.


    I've been trying to catch the Trauma Hawk helicopter for a long time - finally - it came back from a mission - had to fly around the end of 28R before landing at it's base on the west of the field


    Highlight of the day for me - I was just about to pack up and leave when this arrived - so I hung around for the 1 1/2 hours turnaround time - went to the west side of the field - and caught her in perfect afternoon sunlight!

    A few of the biz-jets from today

    First time I've seen a Gulfstream with wing tanks instead of winglets


    This was the sharpest Citation of the day - and there were a lot of them!


    I saw this depart, arrive and depart again - and - each departure - the usual GLEX performance - 3000' of runway - it's up in the air..


    I just loved the color of this G-IV - and - the pilot was probably the politest I heard all afternoon!

    Nice Mark. I was doimng the same up here in Tampa Today. Sans camera since the Mrs had it today. I realized that TPA is a very mundane airport. At least in 2 weeks I have a choice of 3 to spot from.

    That is a G2 with tip tanks. There are indeed a few out there. One used to come into SRQ all the time. I do not know if the 3 had it but that is a 2 and the one I used to get in SRQ was also a 2.

    Officially, it's a G-IITT - I thought the TT might stand for Tip Tanks.

    Indeed it does Mark, nice grabs there. Next year I've got to get down there for the winter rush.

    Oh Ryan, there are no G3's with tip tanks. All the tip tankers are G-II's, and they are becoming harder and harder to find.

    Indeed. Was there at one point one painted grey and maroon based at FRG by chance?

    actually, it's "Tuna Tanks."
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    Any time John! Come around a golf tournament in the area - there's a lot more heavy metal around - some interesting reg's too - M- (Isle of Man), lots of European reg's.

    If I am not mistaken there are only two airplanes registered to Isles Of Man and one is a Challenger.

    I agree - I've seen at least 4 or 5 different reg's at Bombardier at FLL, and one I know I've shot was M-ROWL which was a Falcon.
