    Yeah. That was something a little different, but served the same purpose. Ironically, most of the employees dont care 1/10th as much as we do about the planes.

    US Army PC-6 (UV-20A) Pilatus 23254 sitting by the Sheltair parking lot fence. Looking nice and shiny with its red/black trim. Read that its used by the Black Daggers Parachute Team. Are they doing a jump tonite at Yankee Stadium for the ND-Army game?

    Yes Gerard they are!!
    Did they return to FRG? Or maybe land LGA so the crew could attend the game?
    BTW anyone know who flew aerial coverage for NBC?

    We saw it out there Friday night, and couldn't figure out what it was all about...





    On Saturday morning, I went past the museum and saw this on a trailer awaiting delivery:





    It appears to be a WW II M3 Scout Car, but I don't have all the details yet. I stopped in the museum a couple of hours later, and it wasn't around and no one seemed to know anything about it. Turns out it is a new addition, but they don't have space to store it over the winter, so it is "elsewhere" for now, but expect to see this added to the museum's "armored division" before long.

    Almost drove past it. Thought it was a Warbird until I got up close and saw that it was shining like it was brand new!!

    The Columbus Blue Jackets are in town to play the Islanders tomorrow night. They arrived this evening in their DC-9. It's parked at Sheltair, should be there until after the game Wednesday night.

    This is a shot from an earlier visit - Microcenter is holding my laptop hostage, so I'm limited on my photo editing capabilities right now.

    It looks better than my shot! Nice Moose
    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    Anyone know why a C 130 just took off. I would say it took off around 11:25

    Not sure, but there was a report via some fire buffs listening to SCPD freqs that a C-130 had crashed in the woods out in the Hamptons not long after that....a report that was later confirmed false. Very strange.
    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.
    I trust you are not in too much distress. —Captain Eric Moody, British Airways Flight 9

    There was a HC-130 from the 106th practicing touch & go's at Islip today as well. I see them all the time out here (Coram) as we're on the Calverton approach.

    I was at the fire department when the Suffolk Mobile Command center rolled for a reported plane crash in Flanders. It was first reported as a 4 seat aircraft, then a 4 engine, then a possible C-130. As it turns out, apparently it was a 130 that had trouble but landed without incident. The Command Center came back 20 minutes after they left. Disaster averted!
