    fred, love the P-51 shots!!
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    XB-RRC is sitting on Sheltair's ramp. And there was an HH-65 on the ramp today at around 2:20.

    Sorry gang, I've been a bit busy at work and have shirked my reporting duties.
    Along with XB-RRC, here are two other rare visitors to Farmingdale this past week.

    First off: XB-RRC - Gulfstream - G2SP


    Next up: N69 - King Air 300 operated by the FAA


    Finally, the catch of the week: YV2152 - Venezuelan CJ2

    forgive me for asking, what could be a dumb question, but are these specific planes rare, or is it that these types of planes dont come into FRG often?

    If it is these specific planes, what makes them so special? Thanks.

    We see these types of planes all the time at FRG, the rare parts are:
    1) Mexican registered bizjets are few and far between in this neck of the woods.

    2) Venezuelan registered bizjets are even in here even less. (there are only about 125 bizjets according to LAAS Corporate Jet register) http://www.laasdata.com/corpjet/

    3) The FAA King Air (and the rest of it's fleet) ae constantly hopping around the country. Checking airport infrastructure, approaches, etc. If you see it at the same airport more than 3-4 times a year that's a lot.

    Tonight there may be an aurora (borealis) passing thru, There will be a big green army type helicopter doing runs tomorrow all day with troops, Saturday there will be 4 bugs arriving around 4pm and the following week there will be some inbound meteors. Holy Cosmic dust Batman!
    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    hmmm 4 bugs Saturday....looking forward to that.
    Had a US Marines, CH-53 take off here today around 4:30pm, almost snapped my neck to look out the window. The sound was definitely something I wasn't used to hearing.
    They just came back! Landed Sheltair at 5:18pm. Not sure how long they are staying. Hopefully til I'm out of the office...but somehow I doubt it.

    Negitive

    LABOR DAY at the AAM

    Lets just say that you want to be there... I know what they are trying for and if they get 1/3 of what is planned, you will be using a British Accent for a month. Lets just say that the Spitfire planned is now a minor attraction! No More info at this time can be released but I am smiling!!!!! Put in for some weekends off at work now!

    Well, the Vulcan Bomber has always been HIGH on my wish list of British aircraft to see !!! Ha !!
    Of course I know it will NEVER cross the pond, but here's a cool video of it flying at RIAT last month
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XodlwZsUC8U

    BTW Fred, what weekends are we talking about, if all of these AAM plans work out ????
    September is already a busy month for me with airshows at Greenwood Lake and Oceana !!
