    Nice story Skipkid. I too have flown many hours in 8149R and a few in 5860V. Most of my time was in 47825, a turbo arrow.
    It's the fares, stupid

    New York City Environmental Protection Police Bell


    Bell 407 N407EP (c/n 53116) at Republic Airport, Farmingdale, New York, on December 4, 2013. The aircraft is owned by TTM Corporation but operated by the New York City Department of Environmental Protection Police.

    Can anyone provide any background about this helicopter? Any idea where it's based?

    Thanks!
    Tom

    Did you put up a picture as I am not getting anything except a box with a question mark.
    I know NYC DEP used to fly a JetRanger and State DEP flew a copter which for awhile I think was based up in Stewart. They used to patrol all the reservoirs. And the Fed EPA used to fly a Huey Bell 212 w/pontoons back in the 90s and had upgraded to a Twinstar some years back but havent seen that in awhile. Used to fly around low and dip down for water samples.

When I saw him low and fast SB along 110 I headed over to Atlantic. SOB was already taxing onto back ramp of Atlantic by the time I got there!! Shutdown, refueled and hung out for about an hour before flying out to the NE. Now registered to company in Montana but used by Construction Helicopters Inc for heavy lifting!!

    Hollywood at Republic returns again!! Main Terminal filled with film crew!! They were filming on the tarmac outside the Main Terminal with a grey Mustang (I believe) buzzing around and an SUV with a camera attached to a long roof boom following them!! Also saw the area by door the back of the Sheltair hangar coned off!! Not sure if one has to do with the other!!

    From Newsday, it looks like they were filming a new movie "John Wick" with Keanu Reeves over near SheltAir on Saturday. The SUV with the boom was in the background of the photo on their FB page, so the action you saw at the terminal may all be related.

    I just spotted a Miami Air B734 land to deliver a sports team. This aircraft is the white, with black belly and green cheatline. She was originally leased to the Miami Heat and wore those
    colors some years ago. I'll post pics later.

    Shes parked on the southwest side of the field off Rte 109.
    Not sure how long she'll be there for, but you can check here:
