    What misconceptions? LOL, did I miss something?

    These are former NYDEC ships who merged with the NYSPD some ten years ago. N19SP and N129SP are two that I know of.
    Is it bunking at Atlantic or on the State PD pad?

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

    Nah someone confused it for a guard bird. I was just clearing it up. The 106 got rid of their Huey's about 12 years ago or so. That is all. And it is flying from the State ramp.

    Not to argue, but since I've been watching it take off and land from outside my window, I can state they are using Atlantic's ramp. I grabbed a shot yesterday evening, will post sometime this week.

    4 years ago they were using this same ship to drop bait or whatever for rabid racoons in the county. I saw them
    flying real low not far from my house.

    That shot was from the summer of 2007, and I believe they were doing the same thing then.

    The NYSP Bell430 stayed the night last night. Both the Huey & Bell430 are stuck here due to the rain....and they are still on Atlantic's apron. ;)

    One or both will probably be here for the whole Open. Back in 2002 they used a 430 and a 407 to supplement the County Air
    Bureau. Whenever there is an event on State park property they bring in one or two State copters. They did this for the Air
    Show and usually for the July 4th fireworks. And if I'm correct they stage at an LZ at the State Park PD HQ at the golf course
    area when the rounds are in action.

    Nice shot John,
    Must be kind of cool to land that thing and see the ground below you start to glow :)

    I saw that one flying along the shoreline the other day when I was in the area of Bayswater.
