If all goes well they should be heading into NYC between 3 and 4PM tomorrow and will depart FRG on Friday morning.

    FYI - Kenny gave me a heads up that the Metlife Blimp was at FRG this morning. It took off for a flight down to the beach just before I got there at 12:30 and it looks like it will be based at FRG for a couple of days.

    At 4:50 they flew right over my head in Plainview heading to the NW. The Met game had some aerial shots of Manhattan today I wonder if they were coming from the blimp. The announcers never gave credit to who it was then of course maybe they tried but Keith Hernandez doesnt shut the "bleep" up!!

    In addition to the Metlife blimp there was a lot of T-6 action from the museum today. Both Truman and Deb were flying around.

    Here is some aerial footage I DVR'd from the last time the Metlife blimp was over at FRG, I totally forgot about it.

    Yeah, the Metlife Blimp sure did a great job catching the Hawkeye taking off from FRG during the Golf Channel telecast over Bethpage Black last year. Thanks for posting that video on here, Ken !
