    Republic Farmingdale (FRG) Notable Visitors

    Original post is here
    Today at Farmingdale (Lots of Photos. 56K = NO!)
    http://nycaviation.com/forum/viewtop...=224&hilit=frg

    Ok, figured it was time to start a new FRG thread and with an Angel in town.... :borat:

    He was here to finalize the Airshow information for the 2008 Jones Beach airshow.












    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    When you think about it, who needs a phone, email or fax to finalize plans ;)
    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.

    i wonder how often those blue birds see snow.
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    I've seen this Citation for a while now at FRG, but usually just poking out between hangars and parked aircraft down on the south side. Finally saw it Thursday out near the fence with nothing in front.



    It's painted up in a military-themed paint scheme, which threw me the first time I saw it, thinking it was some military visitor, until I saw the N-number on the engine cowling. The markings on the tail carry out the military theme - 97-0231 - according to the FAA registry, it was built in 1997, and has a Cessna serial number of 0231.

    Well that explains the high frequency of sightings for what I thought was a USMC VIP aircraft climbing out of Republic and why I never saw it on the visitor ramp. Cheers Moose.

    Moose I take it that it's legal to paint your aircraft to look like it's in the military? I mean, color scheme sure, but down to the military reggie he added...that's taking it a step to far.

    After about 3 minutes of research I discovered the owner's initials are not MG, but they are the initials of his company's most popular product. Also, he was an F-16 pilot. :)
    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
