    The Marine Corps flies the Citation as the UC-35 for personnel/cargo transport - could be one of theirs. I guess with the F-16s and Blackhawk, you get a multi-service flyover for the Super Bowl.

    Update: the 2 F-16s, Citation and Blackhawk participating in the exercise (that has now been pushed back until Thurs. morning) are for Super Bowl Air Defense preparations only. The actual Super Bowl Flyover will be a 12-ship flyover consisting of Chinooks, Apaches and Blackhawks according to these links:

    Not sure, all I know is that F-16s from Tyndall Air Force Base in FL will be flying lead in the exercise and F-16s from AC will be flying standby also. Hopefully the 2 F-16s will land at FRG in the morning and station there over the next few days if we're lucky !! Fingers crossed !

    UPDATE: My two friends are currently up in the air and are unable to land due to: KFRG closed due to A galaxy Jet disabled in the middle of the two runways! Reg is N844RC, came from OPK.

    Oh well, so much for that CBS news link saying the 2 F-16s, Citation and Blackhawk would be landing at FRG after the exercise this morning. I figured it was too good to be true

    Sorry about portrait... I was sharing the window with three others... didn't have my iPhone and shot it portrait on the ipad :(
