    Here's the shot from yesterday. They were backlit but I am pretty happy with the results!

    Flickr changed again and I don't know how to grab the BB Code. Any thoughts?

    Incident today at FRG. Soon after departing FRG the pilot of a Cessna 182 contacts the Tower that his landing gear is locked and will not retract. Asked if he wants to declare an emergency he declines and comes around to land on Runway 1. He comes in VERY slowly like he was floating and as soon as he touched down the gear collapsed!! There was a puff of smoke and the pilot quickly stopped the plane. Seconds later the pilot, by himself, comes out and waves his arms in the direction of the Main Terminal/Tower indicating he is alright!! As Rescue 1 and 3 race over the Tower is quickly moving away all the planes that were on final approach behind him sending them over to Runway 3-2!! Then they had to move the multiple planes that were waiting to depart R1 over to R32. Great job by the controllers but even a better job by the pilot to bring his aircraft down without any noticeable damage that I could see through my binocs!!

    Saw coming attractions of next weeks "The Blacklist" and looks like they did more filming at FRG by the old tower area!! Possibly using a C-47?

    Yes, they were at SheltAir/AAM a week or so ago filming some scenes, including the museum's C-47 that will air over the next two episodes.

    Yeah, the Old Tower and the Sheltair tarmac got alot of exposure on the episode last night as well as the AAM's C-47
    I actually thought I was watching "Resurrection" when I saw them scramble a F-14 to shoot down the C-47 over NYC. LOL
    And it was also funny when they "show" a close-up of the F-14 cockpit and it's actually an F-18 then !! LMAO
    Oh well, got to love seeing the Tomcat though

    War Bird flying around Republic

    There's a war bird flying around Republic and neighboring towns today. At first I thought it was a Corsair but realized it wasn't. Any idea what kind it is? Reminds me of '04-'08ish when seeing war birds flying around was a regular sight. Miss that.
