    It just took off about five minutes ago off of 14. It looked like a Corsaire from it's wing profile, unfortunately, I do not know exactly what it was. The sound of the engine made me look out the window as it is distinctly different than the normal traffic here.

    I believe the Corsair and Avenger from the AAM were heading over to Teterboro today for the Wings and Wheels Expo there,
    so you might've heard their departure from FRG this morning.

    Ah! Avenger. Googled a Pic of an Avenger and that's what I saw.

    Thanks Chris!

    FYI- just heard from Rkfast and he said there's an A-10 fuselage on a trailer on the tarmac between Sheltair and the AAM right now.
    I guess the AAM is finally getting an A-10 ?

    Sounds like a reasonable assumption, Chris...

    Yeah, I stopped over there quick today also and it's coming together pretty fast.
    It's just too bad they couldn't have flown it into FRG, just like they did when they retired the Prowler a couple of years ago,
    because it must be costing a small fortune to haul it all the way from Boneyard in AZ to FRG by trailer and reassemble it !!
    Anyway, it's nice to see the A-10 back "home" on LI and hope the AAM will eventually paint sharks teeth on her nose also

    Found the below pic on the warthog news facebook page.

    On Friday the house passed a bill to block the Air Force from retiring the A-10.

    Maybe they will have a dedication ceremony with a FlyBy of a few active A-10s!! That would be nice!!

    Now the cats out of the bag






    The crew that put her back in one piece


    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    Nice shots, Fred
    I found this photo link of that very same A-10A back in July of 1982 when it had the "Charcoal Lizard" paint scheme.
