    Nice shot!! I was the guy standing next to you and your friend in the parking lot and remarked about the Cirrus SR22 with the Islander emblem being "Their team plane"!!
    BTW you guys notice the blue sport plane that was told to go around and basically did a hard right 360 over the cemetary and came right in? Pretty cool. I believe it was David Windmiller.

    It was nice to put faces to names yesterday. I was able to grab a shot of David and his Edge, it looks like he painted it! By the way, do you know what other teams normally charter or fly their own plane?

    The other Hockey teams that operate their own plane are the New York Rangers, Detroit Red Wings,
    San Jose Sharks, Phoenix Coyotes and Dallas Stars.
    Unfortunately, the Blue Jackets DC-9 will be the last privately owned NHL Team plane at FRG this year,
    and they should be taking off from FRG after their game today sometime between 5 - 6PM.

    Just got to FRG a little while ago to catch BKS. It looks like they're getting the chinook ready to depart. There's also a UH-72 sitting next to it.

    I left around 3:00. They both started up, the chinook hovered for 10 minutes and the Lakota flew around then they both landed and they opened up the right engine cowling on the chinook. I left after that, the light was going bad so I left. I'll post the shot tomorrow.

    I saw yesterday a helicopter flying over Carl Place/Mineola. When I went outside, it was was too late to run to my car to grab my camera for pics. It was afternoon, around 2pm. It could have been Lakota from pics I saw on the net.
