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

    Anyone want to meet up at the Jones Beach Airshow on Sunday? My wife and I are gonna head out there. I could probably drive one or two people from my area (i.e., Futt, Phil). It'd be sweet to have a NYCA presence at the show...

    ahhhh. let me clear my throat!

    GUYS, WHATS UP?!

    Sorry I am late in checking in!

    BIG SHOUT OUT TO ALL THE PEEPS in hte house! Futterman, Mike, Phil, Derf, Ron, Art, Senga, Josh! Hey, I know I am missing a bunch of you, but a huge belated WASSAP!!!

    I've still maintained limited access to the internet at home since we moved in Febuary. But hey, Things are coming along, tomorrow we get new bamboo floors put in and next, we are putting in a new bathroom.

    The cool news is that, as Derf said, the planes are coming in. Where we live, I can see most european arrivals into JFK and a large amount of traffic entering and exiting Republic.

    I won't make this weekend, but I hope you guys have a happy and safe weekend and take lots of video and photos for Phil and I!

    But I wont be too far away from aviation this weekend. I'll be up new the abandoned Livingston Manor Airport, at the southern aspect of the Catskills. While vacationing with family, I'll be doing a bit of research about this airport.


    Gentlemen, glad to be back!

    Enjoy your weekend!
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    I can meet up with you guys on Sunday, I will be watching the show most likely right on the beach, right at the water's edge.

    Eric...where would I go in order to find you? Believe it or not, I've never been to Jones Beach! Any tips on where to park?
