    The landing pad Gerard linked to is in Woodbury, south of Jericho Turnpike, at the Cablevision complex. Bethpage has a Cablevision complex with a listed helipad as well. Given it is a published helipad, and they aren't just dropping in onto the front lawn of the building, I suspect they aren't fined for landing there.

    The Nassau County Police also have a helipad nearby in Bethpage, but it is not generally open to public use.

    WOW! What a nice surprise today. OO-JAA, a Sun Country/TuiFly 737-800 Hybrid just came to Atlantic's main ramp. From the flight plan, it appears that they are here to take the St. John's men's basketball team out to Denver for the NCAA tourney. Pics tonight.

    Uh I would think so. I mean Dolan has enough detractors if these pads werent legal they would have been shutdown years ago. And he does have deep pockets
    but not that deep.

    as promised, the Sun Country/TuiFly hybrid from this afternoon. Crappy weather + point & shoot = less than ideal shot, but, it's a keeper for me.

    John, what are you talking about? That is a TERRIFIC shot... given the light, you managed to get the best possible exposure of the lovely lady. Nice job.

    Great catch on the French Falcon Moose! I'm going to start a rumor that the reason they are here is to plan on the arrival of the French Aerobatic team for the Jones Beach Airshow!

    Hey not the first time. In June of 1986 they flew over in formation at the very end of my Northport HS graduation ceremony on the way to FRG. Luckily my celebratory dinner was at the 56th, so I got to see the Alpha Jets all lined up on the ops ramp. Ah memories.............

    Anybody know what was going on at FRG last evening? I was on my way home, scooting down New Hwy at around 7pm-ish. There were lots of cars parked on the road, including 2 SCPD cars. Large trucks were in the parking lots. Didn't have time to stop and check it out. Was it a movie shoot or something else entirely?

    Are they going to do any air shots or only ground filming?
