    DirecTV Blimp has been kicking around the Northeast; I saw it moored at PNE a week or two ago.

    Sounds like it might be back at FRG next week again for more Mets games too.

    The shoulders on both sides of New Highway are paved now,

    They can actually carry up to 5 pods. The EA-6B also carries multiple pods - they can be used to jam different frequency ranges.

    John,
    Wow I assumed by now they would have had enough tech to utilize one ECM pod to cover all the frequency ranges instead of three using up other hard points.

    Either way what an amazing aircraft the EA-6B Prowler is. I had a chance to shoot a line of active A-6 Intruders (EA-6B predecessor) in 1995 but I because I ran out of film right when I got to them.

    3 HH60's from the Army Guard took off from Sheltair about 3pm today in a "flight formation." Was just walking out to lunch, didn't have the camera ready.
