    Big movie/TV film this afternoon on the ramp between Sheltair and the AAM!! The parking lot of AAM was filled with movie trucks!! They had a Russian Mi-8 helicopter in Russian CG colors and later an Army UH1 parked by the hangar door by the old tower. Looks like they might have been filming inside the hangar also. When I found out i took a run to see if the Mi-8 was still there but by 4 it was gone and the UH1 was being used it filming. Looked like the UH1 was prepping to leave around 5:30!

    From my "sources" read that this was part of the production of the new ABC thriller "Zero Hour" which premieres tomorrow (2/14) night!! Also read that the UH1 that they used was apparently the same one I heard/saw a week earlier and had been sitting in the Sheltair hangar!!
    The same source" wrote that production companys enjoy filming at Republic because the are allowed access to the tarmac to shoot aircraft flying!!

    Two hockey charters at FRG today!! Miami Air was parked at Atlantic with its nose almost up to the fence!! Thought that was for the Flyers who were playing at the Coliseum this afternoon though I did know they usually used Delta!! Well at 3:25 Delta Airbus on final to Runway 3-2 taxing over to the rear of Atlantic!! Checked the Isles schedule and they were heading up to Ottawa for a 3 game road trip!! They need to get out of town after todays whipping!!

    Very very cool surprise at Sheltair today!! 2 USMC CH-46C Sea Knights were sitting on their ramp when I stopped by around 2PM. Had some time and they looked to be transient so I decided to wait around!! Well didnt have to as in about ten minutes both crews (4 each) came out and after the warm up and wind up they taxied over to One Nine and departed out to the east low and fast!! They were from HMM-774 a Medium Lift Helicopter Squadron based at Norfolk!! It was a nice sunny winter day but pretty windy and when those tandem rotors cranked up it was even worse!! Had to retreat into my car until they taxied way!!

    Nice catch!

    Today I saw what appeared to be an Army UH-60 with drop tanks heading toward the FRG direction.

    Came in last evening to pickup the Winnipeg Jets. I think this is the first special scheme ever to visit FRG.

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

    Saw that Fairchild today on my way home. They had a Ryder truck next to it unloading. It was cool!
