    Used call sign Tiger One. Made one pass over the cemetery and then a pass and left break over the airport and landed on 14. Parked behind Sheltaire

    Sounds like it's a Hawkeye from VAW-125 "Tiger Tails".
    Fred , since it was "Tiger One", was it VAW-125's CAG Bird by chance ?

    NICE prop blur Joe, especially on the last 2 shots!!
    Thanks for posting them and confirming it's from VAW-125.
    BTW, Did you find out when it's departing ?

    Joe good to see you too. Nice shots. Will post some of mine later. Crew made it easy with the passes.

    Chris it is from VAW-125 but it has LCMDR and LT markings so I don't think it is the CAG.

    Funny thing after they made the there 2nd pass the tower asked , "Tiger 1 what are your intentions?". To which they answered, "To land?". Sounded like the tower had no idea that they were coming in.

    They are parked behind Sheltaire tough to get a good look wit all the business jets. Nobody seemed to know when they are leaving

    yeah, they couldnt have put this in a worse spot for spotters (could be intentional). Usually Fred or someone "in the know" gives us a heads up, but maybe folks at the airport were left out of the loop on this one

    BTW, Great job by the Metlife Blimp and the Golf Channel broadcasting the whole takeoff
    of the E-2 at FRG a few minutes ago just before they went to a TV break !!
    I wish I could have recorded it !!

    Edit:
    I just noticed the Golf Channel might be replaying it's Golf coverage from this afternoon
    from 8:30 - 12:30 tonight, and if so keep an eye out for the E-2 takeoff just after midnight.

    Haha interesting, when I first saw this and saw Tiger 1 I thought it was the call sign for Tiger Woods who is playing at Bethpage!!

    Hopefully we will catch Snoopy One on the mast for the little guy. He's going to be mad about missing the E-2 but he's more of a VAW 123 guy (he calls all E2's Screwtops)
