    I was told by a friend that the JROTC teacher in my school said they would be doing a demo in the field at my school. I hope he's telling the truth!

    Hot of the press;

    There will be a flyover of military aircraft for the parade of ships going up the Hudson consisting of F/A-18's from VFA-106 The Gladiators & VMFA-122 The Werewolves along with MV-22's (Ospreys) from VMM-263 The Thunder Chickens.

    The flyover should follow the ships after they enter NY harbor.

    Nice, I wonder why it wasn't on the "official" sched. Oh well, not much anyway. They really should do a couple of laps. From the Battery to GWB takes them 2 mins.
    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.
    I trust you are not in too much distress. —Captain Eric Moody, British Airways Flight 9

    I stopped by Massapequa High School this AM for the USMC Demo/Visit and they only brought two birds and no Osprey. Here are two shots of the Sea Knight and a Cobra.

    FYI- I saw the Demo this morning by the Osprey, Sea Knight and 2 Cobras at Eisenhower Park.
    I also talked to the pilot of the Sea Knight who was out of Norfolk and asked him if they were
    also doing a demo over at FRG at 3PM today, and he said that demo had been canceled.
    The 4 helicopters are supposed to depart Eisenhower Park at 2PM, so if you don't live too
    far from there you can still catch them over there !!! :borat:

    a CH-46 and two AH-1s just flew southbound over LGA headed towards the city.
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.
