    Hey mazgirl! lol. Good to see you again. So funny how close we are to each other. I guess no one has a clue why the jet came in? I am going to pick up and son and drive by the airport. Hopefully I will get some answers

    He is there until Sunday
    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    Re: Republic Farmingdale (FRG) Notable Visitors

    So I'm going through pictures I took last week at FRG and one was of the nice looking R-44 Clipper that
    hangars over by Atlantic, N272DW. This copter has been here for years and was also used during the air shows to ferry people back and forth from Jones Beach. On a number of occasions I heard them on FRG Tower advise they would be landing at an off site pad to the north. I figured must be some rich guy landing
    on his property somewhere. So this morning I finally decided to check out who this might be since his website is on the side of the copter.

    Well DUH ME!! :oops: when I see who operates this copter. (Getting old and slow :) )
    Very nice indeed. And interesting reading.
    BTW is this the same R-44 that used to sit in the Talon hangar?

    FYI, I've heard the Super Hornet should be departing around 2PM on Sun.
