    Re: Today at Farmingdale 2008

    Question. St. Johns flew out of FRG to play Notre Dame tonight.

    They arrive back at FRG late this evening/early this AM.

    Any idea who/what they used?
    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.

    Interesting that they use FRG and not LGA or JFK but I guess they can get in and out faster than using a larger
    commercial airport.

    I believe ramp/runway fees are cheaper too.

    Your cable dollars at work Cablevision's B734 arriving this afternoon from Palm Beach. There were about 20 Town Cars, plus some higher-end rides as well, parked around the ramp next to their hangar to pick up the passengers. According to FlightAware, she's heading back to Miami any time now.

    I was hanging around waiting for her around 2, but she never showed, so it seems i just missed. I did see the obscene amount of Town Cars and people in fancy suits though.
    Shoot first, ask questions later.

    Re: Today at Farmingdale 2008

    Do the Rangers and Knicks use 37NY also or do they use a seperate charter?
    Cablevision also has this copter http://www.helispot.com/photo/0003340 and one or
    two fixed wings in the same color scheme (though registered to NY Aircam in Woodbury).
    I thought they also owned Chopper 12 but now I see that US Helicopters in North Carolina
    owns it.

    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    And it is a very busy IFR operation also. The helos make regular stops at both the Bethpage and
    Woodbury pads and when one of the ships is down for maintenance they bring in a back-up 76.
    At one point Dolan wanted to build a pad at the Rangers/Knicks training facilty up in Greenburgh, NY
    (Westchester County) but I believe he was turned down by the locals. Now has to drive over from
    HPN.
