    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    Pretty cool catching the KC-10 out at ISP !!
    I guess the KC-10 is already practicing for the Air Show cause they'll probably have to tank the
    T-Birds so that they'll have enough fuel to make it back to ISP from Jones Beach !! HaHa !!

    I have a good friend that gave me the heads up but it could not be announced. It was a last minute notification anyway

    Fred you always show up with some gems.

    ISP is an interesting choice for KC10 t&g's, their runways long enough to support a departure?

    Yes... 7000' is the minimum length for takeoff/landing/touch-and-goes. RWY 6/24 is 7006' and the TORA, ASDA and LDA is the same.
