    I remember seeing that ship at Eisenhower Park a few years ago. A different AH-1W flew in yesterday!!

    Hi everybody!

    This is a South American visitor who happened to bump into Fleet Week on Wednesday 24th while on nothing but a casual pass by the USS Intrepid museum.

    I can confirm the four aircraft on board USS Kearsarge as well as an USCG drone on cutter Hamilton and two HSC-5 Sea Hawks flying by Hudson River on Friday 26th.

    Not necessarily related to the above, also noted another USMC MV-22, an USAF H-60, two USN CH-53A and a couple Army H-60s flying around or from Manhattan between Tuesday 23th and Friday 26th.

    Photos and serials + markings will be forthcoming once I finish off sorting the 1,000 photos I took during vacations.

    Regards,
