    Yes I saw them parked on the back ramp of Sheltair. It was here for the State Fair at Nassau Coliseum. I thought they'd be here all week but unless they parked at the Fairgrounds I never saw them again.

    A gaggle of DHS/CBT helicopters descended upon Republic late this afternoon. As I was driving past the Talon hangar I saw a CBT Astar parked there along with a Sikorsky S76 which I later learned was a DHS copter and another Astar flew over me landing on the ramp. About an hour or so later I was over by the mall when in the distance from the south I see a flight of 3 helicopters flying towards the airport. Got a better look with my binocs and saw it was two UH60 Blackhawks and another Astar. The Hawks shutdown on the back Atlantic ramp while the Astar joined thye other three at Talon. I'm guessing they are in town for the UN GA or there's some big Op going on lol.

    Hey all,
    Around 10:40am I heard the deep hum of a large propeller aircraft. Hobbled (bad knee..hehe) with camera phone in hand and I saw what I'm guessing was a C-130 in green and tan camo. I guess it took off from 32 and it was heading NW. I wasn't quick enough to grab some shots but got lucky when it came back around but at a bit higher Alt and took a few zoomed shots.
    Here is the "best" of the bunch. Sorry for stink-oid quality. S8 camera phone at max zoom.

    That looks like the C-123 that lives at Beaver Falls, PA and shows up at a lot of airshows in the Northeast.

    Ahhh mystery solved. I heard it around the same time flying by my house. Thought it might be one of the AAM big boys.

    Thanks for the ID guys. I wish we had military visitors more often. I miss the days when we did.

    Yeah, FIFI did a practice flight tonight from 6 to 7PM with a new crew and they did a low approach,
    a touch-n-go, and then landed on RWY 14. Tomorrow they have rides scheduled for 9AM and 10:30AM
    incase you want to see it in the air again then.

    It saddens me how quiet Republic forum has been.

    It seems that the entire website has become much less active, in general. Not sure where everybody went!
