A while ago, Paulianer came up with the excellent idea of organizing a meeting during the Airport Classics-Event at HAM, held on sept. 13th/14th 2003... Quite a few of us are already taking part in this meeting. Here is the list of who's coming:
- Tobi/Paulianer (local)
- Michael/IwantaBBJ (flying in from BSL)
- Jumbolino (maybe)
- Frank/FUAirliner (local)
- Rich/ViveAE (flying in from MAN)
- Andy/Skymonster (flying in from BHX)

Yup, all still on as far as I'm concerned, and looking forward to it. I'm off to the USA for a week on Wednesday 3rd, back in the UK Wednesday 10th, and then it'll be just two days until Hamburg! The BA flight from BHX lands at HAM 09:40 Saturday, and I think the return is something like 20:00 Sunday. I've booked a room at the Ibis at the airport.

meanwhile it's very maybe, that I can come - refer to the thread, if your spouse/husband doesn't like aviation like you do and it's a longer weekend for him, so he likes to come to INN spend the long weekend with me, but not with planes

Just checked the weather forecast for HAM next weekend, and it actually doensn't look too bad... Hope the forecasts are not changing....
@Paulianer: I'll be arriving on flight LX856 at 0830LT that morning.... As for the others: ViveAF wrote that he's flying Ryanair to LBC and then he'll take the bus, Skymonster will come in at 0940... How are we going to meet? As we are all coming in on different times, it might be an idea to meet at a specific point (ie. the 707) at about 1030 to 1100. I'll be recognizable by my old BA-T'Shirt with a big Concorde on the back... Looks rather washed-out but it would help to identify me. It might also be helpful to exchange mobilephone-numbers of those that have one... Just in case....
What do you guys think?
BTW: Thomas_Jaeger mentioned something to me that he might come also.... Would be nice to have him there too!!!
And edit: Swiss says on it's webpage that my flight would be on an ERJ-145.. I thought that they use Saabs to HAM... Or maybe the Saturday-morning flight is operated by an ERJ-145 as an exception?

Hi Tobi, Mike & Andy - it was a great weekend, excellent show, of course the weather was extremely kind, and you were all great company
I`m sure there will be some great shots of the event, can`t wait to see them posted.
Now that I have learned about Mike`s penchant for stroking 707`s I will have to email John Travolta and see if he`s willing to let you try it on his flying version !
Thanks to Tobi for getting it all together... here`s to the next event (wherever) - and here`s a shot of the CRJ which flew me from MAN to HAM - "Little Europe" - and no prizes for guessing who took the photo
