Was sitting at the Hicksville station (LIRR) today in my car waiting for the optimum time to get out so I
wont have to freeze my boys off waiting for the train when I see a light in the distance to the West. At
first I thought it was a star, it was high enough but I saw it moving slowly to the east. When I got out of my
car at 6:44AM it was passing over me around 3/5000 feet and it was who I thought it might be. A Sikorsky
helicopter, S-76 from the sound of it, heading out to the East and from last glance starting to turn NE.
I've been seeing this copter for a few years now, always between 6:30 and 645AM. Sometimes a few times a
week, sometimes every few weeks. In fact I hadnt seen it in awhile before today. Always curious who it might
be. Doesnt seem like its coming from NYC as its pretty high up coming from the West already. Thought it might
be some corporate shuttle maybe heading up to the Boston area.
Nice way to travel for sure.
