    DHL Copter At ISP?

    Anyone know anything about this? On another website Forum a poster said he saw a DHL
    ship at ISP Thursday.
    As far as I know the DHL copter which used to be based at FRG has ceased operations.

    remember seeing a yellow DHL 206 at JRB, and hearing them passing kennedy but that was a while ago. maybe they're resurecting the sevice...
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    I saw a DHL copter fly out of jfk yesterday.
    It's hard to take chances but sometimes it's better if you do

    Interesting. Thanks I'll have to keep an eye (and ears) out for that.

    Could have been an unscheduled run to ISP, or even a VIP going for a flight.

    There's also the regular daily JFK flights for them.

    I see it on and off at ISP... I think it is regular service or common at least
    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    N58020 is (was?) a TwinStar that is a regular around here. The copter seen was IDed as a JetRanger. N # change?

    N58020 isn't a 206 and isn't yellow, at least it wasn't as of a few weeks ago, which is the last time I saw it at its 39N/Princeton base.

    LOL.
    According to the FAA it looks like the registration has changed. Or will be.
