    So I guess we will be having updates to their arrival at ISP, not the easiest airport to spot at
    Figure they will use R 6-24. 6 would be good to see them come in right over Rt 454.
    Well we shall wait and see!!

    Is Islip spotter friendly? Are there places to shoot?

    I'm thinking if you park away from airport side and set up by 454/Ocean and they come in or depart Runway 6 it is possible to get some shots/looks!!

    Just an FYI a Kc 10 landed at ISP on Thurs. Sat there and took off. In a matter of 10 Mins.

    Is there any particular reason they chose Islip as opposed to Republic? They have used Republic in the past if I remember correctly...

    Not sure exactly why, but it's unfortunate they're not using Republic again just like they did in 2007 & 2009.
    One of the highlights was seeing the arrivals and departures of their C-17 support aircraft at FRG

    From what I remember in years past , they were never really fans of Runway 14. Wanted it to be longer. But it will def be a disappointment not see that huge C17 come into republic. I held my breath watching it land every time!!!

    I believe the only time they used Republic was 2009.

    FYI - The T-Birds used JFK in 2005, and Republic for both the 2007 & 2009 shows at Jones Beach.
    The T-Birds missed the 2011 show because of their European Tour and the 2013 show also because
    of the Sequestration budgets cuts.
