    that extra is one of two used by the tutima academy of aviation safety. one is painted in oracle colors while the other is in tutima paint. they're based in King City, CA (KKIC) which has a kick ass taqueria only 4 blocks from the airport! http://www.tutimaacademy.com/


    i'll never get used to how bloated those -30s look. still an awesome airplane though!
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    >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?

    < Actually flew on one from East 34st to JFK when it operated as the airport shuttle. It was the first leg of our honeymoon trip to Hawaii
    back in 83.

    Re: Today at Farmingdale 2008

    Took a ride today with a friend and I were trying to setup for OVER A YEAR.... The
    last time I was with Paul he was telling me that he was going to take the day off of
    work to take ME up!

    I shot him leaving


    Then a shot of him arriving!


    Waited as the beautiful bird comes to a stop but the engine was never stopped!!!
    I see a smile and the a wave....but slowly I realize, he is not waving...but asking me
    to go. I start my (well trained) no when I see my good friend Charlie shaking his
    head YES! He starts yelling "I got him...GOODBYE!" and I look down at my son
    Jack, He really wants to go...but I am truly sorry it was a two seater as HE loves
    aviation as much as I do!



    Awwww YEA!


    This was a runway that I never used, 3 down.... 1 to go!


    I am in the biggest head turner around.....Everyone love a shiny cute little noisy
    airplane....right? But still can not take the spotter out of me!


    The Sights the sound the tastes the smells, I was in complete sensory overload and
    had no idea what was to happen next.

    I think someone got shots of this visitor at night :) If only the damn camera focused on the airplane and not the tower :evil:



    Parked over at SheltAir. Owned by North Flight EMS. Arrived Wednesday just after Noon from Michigan using a Lifeguard call sign, and returned home to Traverse City, MI a few hours later.
