    Heard the sounds of beefy rotors strong enough that it shook my house a few mins ago. Saw what looked like a Blackhawk heading for 14.

    I was listening to the FRG traffic last night and the Detroit Red Wings MD-81 came in just before 8PM.
    I believe it's over at Sheltair and it should be departing tonight after their game with the Islanders.

    The Blue Jackets DC-9 is parked over at Sheltair right now. Sadly, it's probably the last time it ever visits FRG,
    since the Islanders will be playing at the Barclay Center next year and most teams will use EWR then.

    Nice seeing some spotter friends out at FRG this morning. Here's the Burkina Faso 722 from last night. Beautiful ol' bird, looking immaculate with polished engine intakes, leading edges and a shiny coat of cream colored paint.

    Chris do you think the Islanders will still fly out of FRG? I say this because I would gather most of the team lives here on LI and they practice at Iceworks!! Of course that can change if they all move away or they find a new practice ice!!
    Saw their Swift Air B7347 fly out today at 2:15 to DSC and I'm wondered if thats it? If they lose of course the season is over and if they win they play the Rangers and no flying will be needed for that series!!

    Yeah, I think there's a good chance the Islanders will still use FRG in the future for some of their flights as long as they use Iceworks,
    or another practice facility in Nassau County that Mangano is proposing now ?? LOL
