    Eastern DC-7 to FRG March 7!

    I'm hearing that the restored Eastern Airlines DC-7 will be arriving at FRG Monday, March 7th between 11am and noon, and hanging out by the American Airpower Museum.

    All word of mouth, but with the rarity of this, I think it's worth the chance!

    Read more about this DC-7 HERE.

    Can anyone confirm or add info on this? I hope the weather doesn't affect it.

    Email me anytime at [email protected].

    I'll Bite...yes, it is due in around noon. In for filming but not going into any further details. I knew about it for some time. Rumor is that they were bringing it in for my birthday....but I am not suppose to know so that is why I was quiet.

    P.S. It will be Painted as Pan Am for filming on one side...the other will retain the Eastern as pictured above by Phil

    I'm disappointed that I got a whisper about this one day prior from a source that shouldn't be my primary means. YOU FOLKS ARE SLACKIN! :-p

    I may or may not be able to attend.

    I can make it.
    It's hard to take chances but sometimes it's better if you do

    Some were aware of this, but had been asked to keep a close hold on the information.

    Even if you miss the arrival (and the forecast has been getting better and better, btw) it will be here for an extended visit, you should be able to see it at some point.

    No, enough people have heard that it wasn't really covert any longer. Someone was going to talk sooner or later. After all, it's not like you can hide a DC-7 on the ramp...

    I'm looking forward to catching this. The Wife is actually encouraging my hobby as she want a picture for a project she's working on. I'm not that familiar with spotting at FRG, where's the best spot to get this one? New Highway? Looks like the winds will be favoring 1 or 32.

    Thanks,

    Jason

    Although I'm working tomorrow...........I do have a few hours I can use. I do plan on coming out there and I'll look for Fred, Moose and Eric. I'm off on Friday as well.....will try making it to Floyd Bennett Field.

    Any idea on the departure time for the C-54?

    This is all so nostalgic for me. I have flown in a DC 7 and a C 54. My first arrival to the USA was on a Super Connie and I arrived in New York at Floyd Bennet Field on that Connie. I will try to make it to FRG tomorrow.
