    Ernie must have taken in a practice round, aircraft departed at 4:30pm.

    Caught Snoopy 1 departing around 3pm. They dragged her nearly to the runway before launching. It may have been a short flight - as I was headed home, there was a line of ominous looking clouds headed east.

    Yup a rain line moved through around that time but nothing like the one that hit around 2:30 this morning!! Wow!!
    I wonder if Snoopy is here for the Subway series game on FOX tomorrow.

    Maybe, but perhaps they are here for the US Open. As I was heading home, I saw them circling over central Nassau, perhaps scouting out landmarks for shooting during the tournament.

If anyone is ever interested in a tour of the facility or wants hassle free spotting access just lemme know.
    i agree, it's a great spot to watch. i've been there on a few race days, my father was the on-site physician there for a while.

    Niiiice. Snoopy 1 and 2 and are my favorite blimps. For a long time Goodyear and MetLife were the only blimps we'd see around here, and GY is cool but Snoopy the pilot is a lot more interesting to look at. My grandma worked for MetLife when I was little and I used to have an inflatable one hanging from my ceiling.

    According to the MetLife Blimp Schedule, it is scheduled to cover the Open, starting next Thursday. Doesn't mention the game tomorrow, but I wouldn't be surprised if it made an appearance since they have nothing scheduled for several days.

    Last I saw (5:48) they were still up with raindrops on the camera lens.
    And just heard Snoopy 1 inbound to FRG from the West.

    Just to clear up misconceptions on the Huey it actually belongs to the State Police, they brought her in for the open. She has an external litter pod on her and is quite dazzleing in person. I love hearing that sound of Hueys again since they left the 106 years ago. I used to watch the,m beat down the beach from my folks house in Long beach as a kid.
