Hi Julian,
I might be down at Myrtle Avenue tomorrow if the weather is nice (again!) and if the wind stays Westerly.If so,I'll be in a white jumper with a blue backpack.
Cheers,Alex

I'll join you guys for a while provided the wind is westerly and there is some sun-but I'll have to head off to work at around 1230.

I'll be wearing my wonderful South West Trains uniform...but you know what I look like anyway Shaun-except my hair has grown back now after that unfortunate incident last month Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I could make it tomorrow if I manage to catch an early train to london and if it will be sunny like today. Where are you all planning to meet?

Well it's 27R arrivals now, and it swaps to 27L in 40 minutes-so I'll be down at Myrtle very shortly, the last time I went to Myrtle was that time you came down Shaun, almost two months ago!

If it's the 09's tomorrow I may still give it a try-depends what time I get up!!

Hmmm... What if 09 runways are in use? Can we know from today if that will happen for sure? By the way, where is Myrtle?

Lewis,Myrtle is the large field that is about a 5mins walk from Hatton Cross station if you follow the A30 dual carriageway to the West(3mins walk past the petrol station)

It was good to meet you Julian, enjoy tomorrow!

A pleasant afternoon was made much better by the appearance of N721MF:

I was only there for about an hour Shaun, in any case it was a bit too hazy to get anything decent from where I was. I thought about coming to 9L but I really didn't fancy cycling the length of the runway and then heading off to work 20 mins later!
