I'm starting a new thread to see who wants to come to YYZ on the weekend of August 16-17 for spotting, especially up top of Terminal 1. As many know, Terminal 1 will be demolished this year, and one of the greatest views will be gone for good.

The other thread was getting too long to easily sift through the messages. Let's get a list of people who can make it that weekend!

Regards,

Nuno.

OK, I'm in. Thanks for taking the lead on this. As I said in the previous post, I'm looking forward to it, having been raised in Toronto. I fell in love with aviaiton on the top of T1.

OK,

I am now saying yes to attending on the 16-17 Aug. I am glad to see there will be at least 4 people there. I am going to call and book my flights and my hotel for the nite. If there are any changes over the next 24 hours please let me know. I am going to put the tickets on hold until tomorrow just in case something changes.


Cheers,


Sean

Well, of course that weekend is far away, but count me in!

Was just out at YYZ, spent my time at Fedex shooting departures off 23.

Hope to see loads of people turning out for this one, T1 deserves a good farewell bash.

I'm on vacation that week so I hope to make the trip up the QEW from BUF for the get-together. What could be better than a trip to YYZ T1 for spotting get together followed by a steak at the Keg on Dixon road.

I'll check back for times and try to have a more definitive answer as to if we will make the trip. Thanks for the update and I hope to meet every one in August

AWspicious, we make trips to YYZ 2 to 3 times a year and have been doing so for 20 years plus, our last trip was June 21-23 for the Nick Cave concert we stayed at the Airport Marriott ($31.00 US night via priceline!, sure beats $220.00 US/night at the Grand!), My main reason for staying out at the Airport was to combine some spotting with the concert. Outside of the Marriott's pool area and up a hill I could get a fair view of many planes on approach (to bad my scanner gave up the will to live) the pics were ok but what I would give for a bit more zoom.

As I said in my previous post I hope to make the trip, wifey loves TO so I know it would be no problem in making the trip. I go back to work July 7, after 3 months on disability (Darn heart attack), so I should be able to get the cash together.

Yours,
IHadAPheo
