    Looks like the Carolina Hurricanes. They played Pittsburg Thursday night, and the Islanders Saturday, so it should be around for a couple of days.

    I caught one of their jets last hockey season:

    Where are these ships hangared and maintained? I always see them by Sheltair before taxing over to the terminal.

    That's exactly the place. They park them on the ramp behind the SheltAir/D&K Hangar, and work on them there. I guess if needed, they could pull one into the hangar for maintenance, but usually they just sit out overnight. A few times when I've been out on the ramp, I've seen MX guys with the aircraft.

    Spent a little time shooting away from the NG event.

    Here's a recently restored, immaculate SNJ.

    Fred, does the Navy know you moved their airplane? Great work, as always.

    There's an Air Canada Jetz A320 in house - arrived overnight bringing the Montreal Canadians for Saturday night's game with the Isle. She's buried down at Atlantic, not a good spot for shooting.





    FlightAware is also showing a 737-700, N129QS at FRG. Looks like it arrived just after I got these shots, and is preparing to leave soon.

    Must be coming back later as it wasnt there as of 3PM Sat.
    BTW do they reconfigure the interiors of these charters to make the seating more comfortable for the athletes?

    You're right, FlightAware shows it departed around 4:30pm Friday. I wonder if they were waiting on crew rest after arriving overnight?
