    Just spent my lunch over at FRG and noticed a lot of activity around this beauty. There were 3 or 4 van / trucks, and the big Sheltair truck (what looked to be a bucket or de-icing truck).

    I also noticed that it was not near the AAM, but on the other end of the ramp. Any special reason?

    Probably putting up blue ball on the tail

    No logo on the tail yet, but some vehicles and stairs in the vicinity. It's parked at an angle, EAL side to the fence, tail toward the Shelt hangar. Like they are trying to keep the PAA markings hidden from the road...

    I thought it was here as part of a TV pilot show but have yet to see or hear of any filming.

    I noticed the horizon in the cockpit shot indicating that the aircraft was leaning to the left.
