    Not sure, the link only says they'll be practicing Friday afternoon and doing the flyover Sunday.
    FYI - the helicopters were parked on Rwy 28 and on the east side of Rwy 22 at CDW before.

    Probably a hockey charter. NW used to do a bunch of them, and DL inherited that business in the merger.

    I also talked to one of the American Heritage Pilots with the C-123 and he said if all goes well
    they should be departing back to the Pittsburgh Area in the morning.
    It's been almost a year since they filmed at FRG, but the new show "Believe" premieres on NBC next Monday, 3/10 at 10PM.
    Here is a behind the scenes video of the show and one part you can even see them filming at FRG next to the C-123.

    I believe it was an L-5 Stinson Sentinel used by the USMC for light observation in WW2 that was parked in its USMC colors by the old Control Tower today!! It had VMO-7 on the body, 112386 also and Mag 38, Quang Tri on the tail. Did research and thought maybe it was an L-4 Grasshopper!! Whatever, it looked very cool.
    Also Guard Blackhawk 23615 came in twice today!! Heard them past my house in and out around 10:30AM then just as I pulled up to the light on 109 into Sheltair it departed again out to the North climbing to 5000 feet!
    What an absolutely beautiful day today!!

    For anyone in the area, there is a Chinook & a Blackhawk over at Sheltair. Backlit at this time, but if they are still here around sunset could be interesting.

    Anyone know when they are leaving? My mole who was there today saw them putting covers on the Chinooks engines and tied the aircraft down and saw the crew leaving with large backpacks. That was around 3:30. Just got home from work and too tired to scoot over there. The Guinness in the fridge is calling my name!!

    Word around the airpatch is the Chinook diverted into FRG with an engine "issue". It may be here for a few days...
