    It could very well be split where the Isles will go to/from FRG because it's near the team facilities and road teams go to/from EWR or LGA (much like the Knicks/Rangers using HPN, while road teams use not-HPN).

    Tomorrow is the funeral for NYPD PO Brian Moore and there is a good chance FRG will be used as a staging point for law enforcement helicopters that will fly in the Ceremonial Fly By. This was the case a few years ago when they all gathered by the ramp of the Northeastern hangar.

    As Gerard said, I'm hearing about a LOT of helicopters, mostly PD choppers from other areas, gathering at FRG in preparation for the NYPD Officer's funeral. Would be a great chance to snag some unique ones, along with any formations they fly.

    I saw it too! It popped out of the cloud layer and caught my attention real quick. Unfortunately, my iPhone's camera decided the dirt on the office window was interesting and should be more in focus than the plane.

    Anyone happen to know if it's still there? Perhaps they were visiting Grumman?

    From what i heard from some one who was going to see if Breitling was still there, he just missed it taking off as the Team was revving up their engines.

    The brand new Hendrick's Gin "Flying Cucumber" Blimp is lit up at FRG right now.
    I heard it should be leaving early in the morning.
    Here's a video of it being built:

    awesome! Saw it coming in the other day on the horizon. Great Gin!
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.
