    Ah you bastard you got cockpit shots! Nice stuff man. It always amazes me that they got that NW B74 in there like that.

    Hey bro, thanks for the offer, I just may take you up on that someday soon!

    Midwest MD-82, hiding behind Hangar 5. She came in overnight from STL, with the Blues, who are playing the Islanders tonight. I assume she will be leaving sometime later tonight, after the game.

    We'll be seeing a lot more charters with hockey season going.
    This afternoon around 1:15 an NYSPD Bell 430 (w/skids) N430SP came in low from the NW over the terminal parking lot into Atlantic in the same spot the MD-82 was parked and shutdown. At 2PM I saw them low NW over Woodbury Rd then about 25 minutes later low EB along the Northern State then back WB heading SW. All the
    time they were below 1000 feet. I wonder if they were doing advance work for the Presidential debates at Hofstra Wed.night? State copters usually come in and
    augment NC Air Bureau for special events and NC has only two copters availables with the third undergoing major maintenance.

    Interesting - hadn't thought about the debate - I was over near Eisenhower Park this afternoon, and heard a helicopter circling to the west of the park. Caught a brief glimpse of it, but not enough to really figure out what it was. Thinking about it now, it did look like the size/shape/colors of this NYSP Bell 430 - I'm just about certain it didn't have skids:

    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.

    Tailstrike guard, if I'm not mistaken.

    Happened to swing by FRG without seeing Bill's post, and caught McCain's plane. It's down near Atlantic:









    This untitled Miami Air 734 was parked nearby, don't know if it is connected.

    Maybe the Islanders are using it? They have a two city swing to Florida in a few days.
