    Cops chased a drunk driver last night who then decided to plow through a fence on New Highway and speed onto a runway.....

    Miami Air 734 came in from Newark around 2:30. No one aboard and it is leaving to Columbus, Ohio around 5PM. After Islanders changed to Swift Air didnt think we would see Miami again!! Nice little surprise!!

    So for awhile now I see major work being done on the wooded area between Runways 32 and 1. Construction equipment has been taking down trees amd flattening the surface. Made a few inquiries on FB and found some very interesting information which I never knew. That area is called Breslau Gardens and once was a community where people lived. And from what I read it new hangars and a tie down area for Sheltair will be built.
    Here's something i found while searching.....https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/...reslau-gardens

    Islanders returned from Florida Saturday afternoon around 3PM after their exciting OT winner in Florida Friday night!! Originally their Swift Air 737 was scheduled to depart FLL at 11:30AM Friday night but of course with the game ending around 12:15AM that didnt happen!! I guess they decided to stay in Florida (Hi, I needed rooms for about 30 people, lol) and left at 12:30 Saturday afternoon. There were a few fans hanging out by the Atlantic parking area but the players pretty much jumped in their cars and sped away!! By 4:45 the B737 was airborne again heading to Chicago Midway!!

    There's been a B738 parked at Sheltair since Tuesday, any idea what it's about?

    Yes, Global Jet Austria. Saw that it came in from Las Vegas earlier in the week.
    Over on Atlantics back ramp sat the beautiful G-V of Sexyjet. Awesome livery

    Looks like the BBJ is managed by Global Jet but owned by Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko.
