    As always Phil awesome job on growing awareness and exposure. Great to see Phil & NYC Aviation being quoted in the article throughout.

    The best part of the CNN article? This...

    Derner said he met his girlfirend, his "Babe-raham Lincoln" if you will, a year and a half ago when she responded to his tweets about plane spotting. Oh yeah, and she's a pilot.

    Very nice article......the more folks are made aware the better. Also, in numbers there is strength......so spotting in groups is ideal in some cases.

    Nice article.
    It's hard to take chances but sometimes it's better if you do

    3 shots from Maho and not a single HoBe departure

    biased reporting I tells ya


    so from now on can we give this article out to people(including Elizabeth PD) who say 'what are you doing'- since obviously now we're legit with the CNN stamp of approval

    Wear a skimpy bikini the next time you are at HoBe, and maybe that will make the papers! Just warn the rest of us first...

    Congrats, guys. This is awesome.

    "Some people like cars," said Derner. "But we like something that's bigger and faster, and it freaking flies."


    Hysterical, but so true.

    And for a change, I feel like such the hipster at having found this site a few weeks before the CNN article.
    Oh wait, I hate hipsters. Damn.

    It's slowly creeping up the CNN homepage, with an ever evolving title:
