    The above pictures are from a studio in Bklyn (I believe). The two times they filmed at FRG they filmed on the tarmac by the AAM and even that was pretty much closed to all. Hell if Fred couldnt get it NO ONE could!!!

    Actually, they are from the Grumman Studios in Bethpage. They do film in the Steiner Studios, at the old Brooklyn Navy Yard, but used Grumman for the large green-screen work show. I did get to see some of the filming at FRG, BTW...

    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

The set up for the scene has a suspect trying to escape in a small aircraft, and the cops drive alongside the plane on the runway and shoot out the nose wheel tire, forcing it to stop (I know, I know...) They went up and down the runway a bunch, with the plane (a Cessna Caravan) and the detectives' car (a Dodge Charger) followed by a camera truck.











    FYI- looks like the episode of "Unforgettable" that was shot at FRG is on CBS right now.

    "Cowboy 55" was the call sign. Heard the roar and ran to the window. Only saw him on downwind with gear down. It's parked at Sheltair.

    The Tex Sutton horse hauler is over by Sheltair as well - at least it was earlier this afternoon.
