    Re: Today at Farmingdale 2008

    You mean these two?





    They are local, based out of the AAM. N4207W has been around for a couple of years, and N7511Q was just obtained in May, a week or so before the airshow. In fact, if you notice, the paint on N4207W is shiny, while N7511Q is more of a flat finish. That's because 07W was repainted after arriving in the States, while 11Q is more or less fresh off the Czech AF flight line.

    Here they are, side-by-side inside the AAM, a few days before the Memorial Day airshow.

    That's the PBY Catalina. She is undergoing restoration at the museum - they got her from the National Warplane Museum in Geneseo, NY in November 2006. I wasn't able to get out there to shoot the move, but I know someone who was there

    Here's how she looked when they flew her in back in 2006:

    Thanks all.
    I saw that "big blue flying boat" when I passed by on New Highway and had to double back to see what the heck that thing was as I was
    partially obscured from the road. Real cool looking and I hope to see it flying again some day.

    Who operates those Jetstreams? Are they for the Atlantic City Runs?

    That was my gig back in the day. I worked at LI Airlines(aka Executive Airlines) from 93-95 and flew that route with the Twin Otters and Piper Navajo.

    You mean the EMB-120 Brasilia? Yes, they do the AC run.

    This little Cessna Skymaster is registered to the AAM, but is a rare sight around FRG:

    Ended up stopping by for a little bit this afternoon as the sky cleared a little, ended up hanging around the terminal parking lot rather than the museum, and caught the Boys from Brookhaven doing their thing:
