    Dan Webb and Av Queen Benet Wilson foiled my attempt to get an Airplane Geeks Button by answering a “Grill the Geeks” Q I submitted regarding Floyd Bennett Field in Queens, NY. Nice job. Next time I’ll have to try harder. Great podcast and as usual Rob wasn’t missed.

    Sorry for an error in my previous posting. Floyd Bennett Field isn’t in Queens. I think it is in Brooklyn, all part of NYC.
