    FYI- There's an old Ameristar DC-9 ( N783TW) built in 1966 parked on the southside of Sheltair.
    I see it came in from Kansas City on Thurs. so it might be in town for the World Series ??

    Definitely not the team!! Dont see KC using a 49 year old DC-9 or using FRG. I saw the plane and it looked a little long in the tooth (as we old guys say lol).

    Did an A-10 land at FRG today, around 4:15 or so? Someone posted on FB.

    I talked to one of the A-10 pilots from MD during the dedication ceremony today and he said
    they should be departing sometime before noon on Thursday depending upon the weather.

    Thanks Chris!! I had a quick window to drive over and check them out and was wondering when they might depart!! Are these from the 175th Wing of the MD ANG?
    BTW they are sitting by the back of the Sheltair Hangar and great views for taking pictures!!
