    That would be like asking the Russians if they have any secrets on America

    Affirm...I will have to dig them up... I have a nice pano with a 707 on the ramp somewhere

    Soo.....they gave it a reg that used to belong to a Cessna...

    http://www.airport-data.com/aircraft/N1703D.html

    Do they need FAA approval for a reg or can they just slap any old reg on as long as there's no engine starts/taxi/takeoffs

    Great shots Manny

    Just a heads up, Kalitta 727 is planned for arrival just before 2pm. I wonder if it will be "Tex Sutton" livery?

    In any event, and 727 and 707 together at FRG... doesn't get much better than that.

    Tom, nice find. Pretty cool!

    Yes, I thoguht that was a Shorts type Ac this morning. I think I read that this episode would make Republic the scene of Haiti in the 1960/70s, probably to look at the rise of the Duvalier regime. So my assumption is that the Shorts/Sherpa looking prop was also used in the shoot?

    Very cool. I recently learned that my grandfather was the photographer for the President of Haiti back in the day. Its in the genes!
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    Glad I got to see this great aircraft tonight. Good to see Manny and Mike - and thanks for the use of your stepladder.
    Also got a look at the 727 parked there as well, and couldn't help thinking how rare this was - a 727 and a 707 at FRG!



    And how about the museums temporary "new" look...

    As best anyone can remember, this is the first time a 707 was at FRG, so it's about as rare as it gets!

    Isaac, nice to see you there today too. It is my second visit to see the 707 and I can't stop thinking how cool it is ...

    The 727 is indeed the Sutton...



    But Mark and Nick have MUCH better shots of it :-)

    Ah man...I was hoping the weather was going to keep her there until Monday. Guess I'll just have to cross my fingers that they use her to film again at FRG in the near future.
