    Ahhhhhh!! :lol: I say that cos I actually heard him working FRG tower while I was down by Atlantic at FRG.
    I heard a copter using the call sign "4EH" and I knew it sounded familiar. From what I gather he wanted to fly
    east along the south shore but i dont think the visibilty was that great (fog?) so he worked with FRG and flew a
    NE heading instead. This was around 2:30 or so.
    Wonder if he was in town the whole week after the Red Bull race on Sunday.
    Im telling you nothing gets by us (this board)!!!! :lol: :lol:

    It's funny you say that because when I was watching him fly over he made a left and circled over the house and changed his course this must have been when he was working with the tower. He must have been in NY since the Jones Beach Airshow so he must be happy to be coming home.

    Also there was some action at FRG today with the Direct TV blimp.

    Well, he did perform up at the Rhode Island Air Show this weekend; on Saturday he flew around 11:30, but I'm not sure when he flew on Sunday. Probably around the same time.
    Shoot first, ask questions later.

    Quite the oppostite. Since Jones Beach, he's been up to Windsor Canada, Indy, then back to Linden for the RBAR, then Rhode Island. His last month has been crazy!

    It would be cool to see him stop by for the night but sounds like he's already bugged out.

    Not sure if this is the right thread - but we shot the Direct TV airship from the air over NYC while doing a photo mission a few months back. They were moored over in KCDW, so this explains why we haven't seen them in a while. :idea:

    Thanks Derf. The originals are awesome, you can see the seams of the airship. Here's one more.

    Ran some errands and decided to do a quick run by FRG. This was about 1:00 and when I was on 110 the
    skies OPENED and I mean OPENED!!! Not surprising with the thickness of the humidity and the dark and
    nasty clouds moving in. Of course this didnt stop Stingray 651 from departing off Runway 1-4.
    Wild weather but typical when a cold front moves in pushing out a heat wave!!

    Wow this thread has been dead!

    Not much action at FRG today but the AAM's T-6 rolled out after the storms hit.
