If you had any information of the aircraft, we maybe could check it out on Flightradar or Flightaware?

The only thing I have is its callsign, which today is WINK20, and that it's a KC10 tanker.  Flightaware and Flightradar don't show anything. I'm not surprised about that though.

If those two are in town, then that would make sense.  Because today (12:05 EDT) the same aircraft with a different callsign is orbiting JFK again at FL240...but in just a slightly different pattern....by the time I noticed it, they had already done a number of orbits...as you can see...

I doubt it's a refueling exercise, not in that location...

It was pretty far south of HPN- both aircraft appeared to be at about the 25,000+ FL, and the smaller aircraft was definitely not commercial-At this point I am leaning towards the previous post about a KC-10 circling the JFK area.
 A highly plausible explanation would be a mock refueling exercise. This would explain the proximity of the much smaller trailing aircraft, the duration of the maneuver and how the follower, after about 60-90 seconds slowly dropped back and moved away to the left.

I guess the question that begs asking is why would they be performing this type of exercise over heavily populated areas

Flightradar24 has a playback option. You can see an American A321 (AAL255) climbing out of JFK that passes overhead HPN at around 15000 feet at around 10:45am, then there is a Falcon 900 climbing out of ISP just behind the A321. Maybe that was it ?

I raised the antenna and we are now picking up the tower, ground, etc., but I am still having network
problems. The network is wireless and my computer is approx. 75' from the router and having drop-out
problems. Next step is to try a wireless repeater.
