    Heard a rumor a pair of Growlers were due in last night, but with the weather, I didn't bother heading over.

    2 Growlers from VAQ-132 Scorpians are sitting on ramp by the terminal.

    Here are a few quick shots:








    Does anyone know when they are leaving?

    Also, I overheard someone mentioning something about a Blue Angel due into Farmingdale today or tomorrow, does anyone have any ifo on that as well?

    Thanks,
    joe

    Had heard they were going to come in Wednesday and leave today as part of the War of 1812 prep, but they cancelled. Don't know if they will reschedule.

    Heard Blue Angels #1 and #7 are up in the Boston Area today doing their pre-visit at Logan,
    so there's a still a chance they might do their pre-visit at FRG within the next week also
    before they head back home to Pensacola for Thanksgiving

    I stopped by this afternoon, but between the rain and some folks looking at the jets, I couldn't get any decent shots. After dark, the rain stopped, and the people cleared out...

    Really nice shots there, Moose.
    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.

    They just took off at 9:36, while upset that I missed them, at least I got to see one of them fly over. I heard the unmistakable roar and made it outside just in time to catch the second jet.

    Flight aware shows them delayed until 10:18, so unfortunately that doesn't seem to be very accurate. I checked it earlier and it didn't mention that flight, unless something else showed up in the night that we were unaware of?

    Military flights don't show up on FlightAware, but I see what you were looking at - that's really odd. Someone must have made a typo when entering the flight plan and never deleted it.

    They cranked up around 9:20, and blasted off Runway 32 around twenty minutes later.













    Two kept the burners lit a little longer...yeah, the airport is going to get noise complaints.
