    Typical reaction - something bad happens, and plane spotters assume the police are going to come looking at them.

    I've seen photos of it at FRG already. San Jose plays Washington this Tuesday, and the Islanders on Thursday, so you may see it in town for a day or two.

    That's more than enough for shooting at the overview, and should be fine for some of the other spots we sometimes hit. If they are on North operations, you won't do well shooting 36R departures from...

    No, it's still open. When they do build the new runway, it will close, although there isn't an announced date on when the runway will be built or when the overview will close - we don't know if it...

    Great shots, Senga! I don't recall seeing photos of the Turkish KC-135s before. And I checked - I didn't fly this one (or any of those sold to Turkey).
