    Not sure where this flight originated from but do the hockey charters flying in from Canada have to go through
    Homeland/Customs? And if so does it all fall on the one agent/officer that works out of the Talon Air building or
    does he get help?

    This flight originated in Calgary, and there were less than 50 passengers on board (only used 1 bus). Charter operators send all there information to US Customs electronically now, so its very simple for one inspector to clear the flight.
    Usually a team representative will gather up all the passports and present them to the inspector, meanwhile the passengers are deplaning and getting on the bus parked planeside. By the time everyone is off, the inspector has taken care of everything he needs to. Gives the passports back to the team rep and off they go. The inspector then takes care of the crew and he's finished. Usually takes less than 10 minutes to clear the flight.

    On a side note, it was interesting to see that the last two people off the aircraft then on the bus were the team captain, Jerome Iginla, then the team coach, Duane Sutter.

    Tuesday March 30th.
    Not that anyone would want to be out with their camera today, but Atlantic has a Miami Air B737-400, and Delta has an A319 both on their ramp. Not here anymore, but there was a Swift Air 737-400 here as well during the day too.

    I imagine that's flying one of the former NWA hockey charters we used to get. I never even though that we would be seeing Delta colors at FRG after the merger.

    It was indeed a hockey charter. The Miami Air bird is still here, past two days they have been working on the #1 engine in the pouring rain.

    I just got back from eating my lunch at the approach end of 19 at FRG in the D&B lot. A Navy Blackhawk (callsign Navy 303) flew final right over me and landed. Not sure what ramp he is parked at.

    Stopped by around 4PM and a 727 from HE "Tex" Sutton (Forwarding Co) is sitting on the Sheltair ramp.
    Nice logo on the tail and "First Class Equine Air Travel" on the cabin. This was a former DHL 727-224 and
    Kalitta is listed as the owner according to an N # search.
    Air Canada Airbus just came in with the Ottawa Senators for tomorrow afternoons game. This is in the usual
    Atlantic spot.
    And around 4:15 a Navy T-39 Sabreliner (Rocket 304 I believe) landed on 1-9 and taxied over to Sheltair.
    Looks like they will be here at least overnite. Touching moment when a female pax or crew member headed
    out to the parking lot to get picked up and received long hugs from two family members, possibly parents.
    What a beautiful day!!

    Wow, a lot of action at FRG today. Maybe I'll go tomorrow and see if any of the planes are still there.

    btw- Who thinks it's time for a new thread?
