This is a BIG post with a whopping 38 photos, though it was difficult to pick only the "Highlights" from Sunday's flight. The weather was a bit hazy up there, but the pay-off was a smorgasbord of visual delights from none other than the "Jersey Shore", along with other sights from around the Garden State....Please enjoy !!!

Wedge-shaped office buildings off Route 1 in Princeton:


A colorful material yard on Route 130 near Hightstown:


This was the last operating day of the Great American Scream Machine (GASM) coaster at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson. It is being removed to make way for a larger attraction for the 2011 operating season:

Still on the Great Adventure property, this is the newest attraction, Tornado (the giant, multi-colored Funnel) located in their Hurricane Harbor water park adjacent to the theme park:


Hangar 1 (large one on left) and other smaller hangars at the Naval Air Engineering Center in Lakehurst. This is the location where the Hindenburg caught fire and crashed in 1937:
