    Over at Atlantic this afternoon an Aerospatiale Super Puma came in about 3pm. Looks like they parked it for the night. N7801F registered to a no name company in Washington state.

    I was on the WB Northern Parkway just about to get off at Broad Hollow Road when I saw an all white Super Puma race past a few miles ahead of me NB. This was about 9:07AM. Had just read your post a half hour earlier and thought "Sumbitch there it goes"!!

    It's self-transporting cargo. Oddly, I saw a different VH-regged GA-8 at a small field in Delaware last year.

    FYI- the Goodyear Blimp "Spirit of Goodyear" is over at FRG right now. Hopefully it will be around FRG for a few days since it's scheduled to provide live aerial HD TV coverage for NBC of the Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular.

    The Goodyear Blimp will be doing some flights from FRG tomorrow, weather permitting, and it will be based at FRG until at least Thurs. for the Macy's 4th of July Fireworks in NYC.

    Does anyone know when they came in? I think I heard them yesterday afternoon around 2:30 talking to FRG Tower but becausae of the low ceiling and poor visibilty they had to loiter outside to come in because the weather was below their minimums to fly in.

    The Goodyear Blimp was practicing at FRG today and did 4 take-offs and landings between 3 and 5PM today. Weather permitting they were going to still try and head into NYC this evening to test out their HD camera with NBC for their Fireworks TV coverage tomorrow night. If all goes well they should be heading into NYC between 3 and 4PM tomorrow and will depart FRG on Friday morning.
