  • Any PR TGer's interested in going to Fleet Week NYC This Friday May 27?

    Fleet week NYC - www.fleetweeknewyork.com

    It is back!! I went last year and went on the USS Iwo Jima (she is back this year along with the USS New York) and it was awesome. Got to go in a LAV, Abrams, the Osprey, CH-53, seahawk, sat in the pilot seat of a cobra, got to use the EOD bot and handled an M-16 with an acog scope - first time ever holding a rifle.

    Let me know if you are interested, I am planning on going Friday late morning/early afternoon and would love to meet up with some fellow TGers. Last year I visited the battlefields of Gettysburg with Warlab so he can vouch for me that he didn't wake up with a headache not knowing where he was with his pants around his ankles.

    The weather is iffy yes but seeing these machines up close and personal really makes you respect the men and women who are flying and being transported/using them.

    Btw the hydra floaty craft thing was also there within the Iwo Jima - forgot the name.

    Stupid graduation parties.....
    Q: How many members of Congress does it take to change a light bulb?
    A: None. There is nothing wrong with the light bulb; its conditions are improving every day. Any reports of its lack of incandescence are delusional spin from the liberal media. That light bulb has served honorably, and anything you say undermines the lighting effort. Why do you hate freedom?!?

      Had I known this even existed I'd have definately made this. Really sweet sounding, closest I'd get to anything really military based.

          Had I known about this earlier I would have bought some train tickets or planned stuff out. Alas I have to work this weekend.

            Next Year, yes. Also they're transfering the Enterprise space shuttle to the Intrepid museum after the Discovery is refited for the Smithsonian. Pretty Cool.

                  Ended up meeting up with Matt aka Harlequin.

                  I was kind of dissapointed with the setup of fleet week this year as opposed to last year. Last year they were shuffling visitors onto the USS Iwo Jima like it was nobody's business, this year, not so much at all. Then for some reason they had a beatles cover band next to the intrepid, which further made the lines longer (why a beatles cover band who wasn't that good, I have no idea at all......).

                  Long story short, USS Iwo Jima line was 3hrs long. We didn't stand on it, but we went on the Intrepid and the USS Growler.

                  The USS New York, and some Frigates were stationed in Staten Island - this was probably happened for security reasons, but between all of you and me, was a poor choice, very poor choice, because anyone from the NY Metro area knows that if you don't have to go to Staten Island you don't and if you have to, you find a way not to.

                  All in all it was fun meeting up with a fellow TG'er, I always get a kick out of it.

                  I did get a chance to see a few Osprey's flying two over the East River on Friday, and 1 which was flying around the Long Island sound on Sunday - along with some SeaHawks, was very cool, especially with how low it was flying; once with rotor's at 3/4 way up, and once with rotor's facing forward.
