    Re: Today at Farmingdale 2008

    It was a Coastie Convention at SheltAir this afternoon - this is one of three HH-65 Dolphin helos on their ramp. Caught this one departing, the other two were still parked at SheltAir when I left.


    Skytyper 6 in the break for Rwy 32.


    Some really nice light this afternoon!


    FlightAware shows this Falcon left for PBI tonight. With the tail markings, is it any surprise it's been seen in Lexinton, KY this week?


    Saw the EMB-145 over at SheltAir - one of the ExpressJet toothpaste planes

    you wont be able to see if from the outside.. but its on the left side of the copter right behind the battery box.. it took out the lower window too.. not that bad of a strike.. ive seen alot worse.. its just a big big dent cause they hit it doing a 120kts well according to the pilot anyway

    any chance you can get us a quick shot of the damaged area?
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    Gaaahhh! She couldn't wait one more week so I could be around to see it? Ah well, I'm sure one of you will do an amazing job covering it.

    Is that the "damaged" H65 still sitting on the tarmac?

    Too bad it has to leave (Felix 101).

    h2opunk1822, it might clear up tomorrow afternoon, any more military planes or anything big like the 727 arriving on Sunday?
