    Took a run by FRG today and saw two dark colored 407s tied down in the front of Hangar 5 by Atlantic Aviation. Checked the N #s (N135GZ and
    N80048) and saw they were owned by Grizzly Helo Leasing of Helena, Montana. Long way from home. Actually just saw on Flightaware that
    135GZ came in last night (11:41) to EWR from Atlantic City. Ferry flights?

    There's a new resident at the Airpower Museum - they have obtained a second L-39. She looks fresh from the Czech Air Force. Still has the Czech markings, paint, and a ton of stencils I can't read We may see her flying this weekend.





    Yes, that's a gun pod under the fuselage. "Number 2 for landing? Not any more..." :D

    Hey a little off topic but is there any reason why the skeleton of the NYHelicopter S-58T has been sitting there off the runway for YEARS?
    Is it a memrial or something? :lol:

    I think it's used for training for the fire squad. I could be wrong.

    On a side note...anybody have an eta for the Blue Angels?

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

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

    Last I checked, Angels were due in at about 9:30am on Thursday. Practice for them is 2pm on friday.

    Took a quick swing by the airport today, saw Klatt take off around 9am....memory cards are blank, batts full, scanner is in the truck, tripod is on standby...I'm getting excited!!
    Shoot first, ask questions later.
