Plane Spotting: Falcone Flies Again
It's another summer Friday, which means it is time for a new round of plane spotting.
Or, actually, chopper spotting. We found two helicopters Hamptons-bound this weekend.
One of the two Sikorsky copters bounced between the East 34th Street Heliport and White Plains, Ithaca and East Hampton, N.Y. Aboard the aircraft could have been any one of the listed co-owners: embattled hedge-fund manager Phillip Falcone, eminent investment banker James B. Lee and private equity firm American Securities.
Another Sikorsky is making one trip from LaGuardia to East Hampton. According to FAA records, the helicopter is co-owned by former Goldman Sachs partner and current vice chairman of the hedge fund Omega Advisers Steve Einhorn, chief executive of Ceruzzi Properties and Connecticut real-estate developer Louis Ceruzzi Jr., and even Philadelphia Eagles Inc.
