    Correct...it was a ferry inbound.

    And it's a gold cheat line. ;)

    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:

    Cheat line is the Miami Air green brand color. They painted it over the red cheat line when they covered over the Miami Heat scheme. Looks gold though in late day light.

    Those old birds are really earning their keep. I've kinda kept tabs on 60V over the years, but lost track of 49R. It was neat to see the pic!

    Awful job by SC Dept of Highways or whoever is in charge of plowing the roads!! New Highway from Conklin to just before the turn by Runway 3-2 is awful!! Especially the southbound lane!! Looks like a plow never came by!!

    Two hockey charters in today!! The St Louis Blues 737 came in around 2:40 on Runway 14 just as the snow started and at 6:50 the Islanders charter came in on Runway 1-4 also. Got a look at that. Was outside cleaning car, snow over, and they came in just below the clouds!! Probably leave tomorrow, heading up to Boston for Mondays game.
    BTW Isles robbed today but thats an Off Topic discussion, LOL!!

    FYI- the second Swift 737 you saw arriving around 6:50 was actually the Bruins charter from PHL to FRG for their game against the Islanders tomorrow night here on LI. BTW, it apparently had to circle around FRG a few times while it was snowing lightly before it landed and then about an hour later it departed for BED, so the Swift 737 should be returning again sometime on Monday to pick up the Bruins after their game.

    Thanks Chris, misread the schedule!! And the Blues left around 7:05 so a little busy here.

    More info here also:
    http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2014/01/...x-westchester/


    Two F-16s, a Citation 550 aircraft and a UH-60 helicopter will take part in the exercise at 4:30 a.m.
    Wednesday over the Hudson River in the Bronx in preparation for Sundayís Super Bowl flyover.

    The flyover will be conducted about 5,000 to 7,000 feet up. and is expected to last for about an hour.
    After the exercise, the aircraft will land at Long Islandís Farmingdale Airport.

    It's just too bad it's supposed to be SNOWING in the morning but hopefully we'll
    be able to see the 2 F-16s, Citation 550 and UH-60 takeoff from FRG on Sunday !!

    Supposed to be nice Sunday also!! And I'm guessing a 5:30 or so departure as Anthem sung between 6 and the 6:30 kick-off.
