Meet At PHL May 23rd?

Hello All,


I figured I would make the post now since the date is only 2 weeks away. Since most people said the end of May early June would be good for them. I think May 23rd would be good as it is the inaugural service day for F9 in PHL (can't wait to see those gorgeous tails). Today the 9th would have been a better meet (you know why), but since most couldn't make it then I guess we should get together the next inaugural day. The date of May 23rd would be great for me and since I was planning on being down there on this date anyway, I would just like to run it by the rest of you. Anybody else want to add any other dates to the list of possibilities? I hope I can meet everyone else that didn't make it March 21st, It would be nice to even see some of you non - PHL people in the area Big grin.


Take care,
Ed

I would love too, but I have to go to a christining that morning. Usually, I work Sundays, so I was hoping the next one would be on a Saturday, but oh well.

I would love to finally meet you all. But I will not be able to make it out there until some time that afternoon (around 2 to 3). Will anyone be out there then?

May 23rd works for me (but then again any weekend will - you can see what a great and busy social life I have). PHLBOS: If anyone wants to see F9 we'll have to be there late in the afternoon anyway, as the only arrival at a decent time is around 4:15 PM. Air France arrives around 4:00 PM everyday now too, usually after Lufthansa.

I look forward to seeing everyone again and meeting some of our other PHL locals.

Joe,

Thanks for the 'heads-up' on F9's afternoon arrival. I should have looked in the PHL timetable; the flight number listed is 448. It sounds like a plan.

Regards,  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Yea, Chris and Dan, I stay normally all day at the Hog Island Rd spot at 27R. But after Speedbird 069 comes in at 6:00 - 6:30. I head over to 9R to get Speedbird 066 at 7:00 and Air Fronce 365, lol at 7:15.

Hey Ed, Where do you normally hang out at on the 9R end? I've only gone donw there once, very briefly for a shot of AF 379 departing at 5:30 or so (back when it still was AF 378/9). They've got "No parking" signs all along that stretch down there, so the cops never let you stay long. I know Paul Kanagie has a good spot in some sort of gravel pull off area for awesome 9R arrival shots.

Joe (Wagz),

Last Saturday, I discovered a spot at the a bunch of warehouses at the intersection of Front & Pourson Streets in Tinicum Township.

To get there from Rt. 291, Turn at Scott Way and follow to Tinicum Island Road. Follow T.I. Road to the intersection of 2nd St. and 4th Ave. Turn LEFT onto 2nd Street and follow to the first intersection past the railroad tracks and the Smart Park lot. Turn LEFT onto Pourson and follow to the parking area behind the warehouses. You can park right to the river's edge and get an awesome view of planes either approaching 9R or taking off 27L.

This was where I saw the first 3 WN planes come in. I stayed for about 4 hours; no hassles, no police, the parking area's deserted barring occasional people going fishing. The warehouses are closed on the weekends. A black-and-white cat and a woodchuck/beaver strolled by to keep me company.

While one can't necessarily see the airport from here, you can definitely see some air action along with a few boats along the river. Big grin

Joe, About three weekends ago I was a PHL basically all weekend,lol. Well we just pull to the side of the road on the right side its a tight shoulder but its ok in the daytime and on the opposite side next to the tracks there is a slight embankment like where the ballast is but its more room there then the right shoulder. Yes, there is a gravel pull off area, it might work maybe for a larger car, you'll see. A friend and I stood right in the middle of the field at the edge of 9R (Its nice they start the turn to 255 right over you) and a cop went by and he didn't say a thing, not a peep, he looked and slowed but keep going. My friends dad was parked at the side of the tracks and still the cop keep driving. You don't necessarily need to be in that field, Hog Island Rd is on higher elevation than the field so you get a nice view. I took a pic of AF 365 with the sunset, just incredible. It would have made a great photo if you or Paul got it. So after AF's departure, I heard something coming and looked up to see a US EMB-170 which I had seen come in about 20 mins after I moved down a bit close to 35, of course my battery had just died like a minute
earlier. Anyway the pics didn't turn out because of processing mistakes and somewhat bad film (that's why I cant wait till I get a digital right before I leave for FLL June 22nd and finally start getting a.net pics Big grin) BTW, I would like to talk to you the 23rd when we meet up about camera's I should look into. Back to the story, you can see the departures landing lights coming at you barreling down 27L atop the Road. It will make for some nice sunset photos


Chris, Got an estimate on how high up traffic is when they pass over that spot?

Ed,

Off hand, I'm not too sure, but I do know that you do not have to tilt your head that much to see them. In most instances, one can read the registration number on most of the planes. In the office, there was a Part 77 approach surface map for PHL which we overlayed on a USGS map. If I can find that map, I can give you a possible answer.

Regards,
Chris

Dan,

I saw one come in for a landing last Saturday between 4:30 PM and 5 PM; so you might see one come in on Sunday.

I myself will get there between 8 - 10 and will be there till about 7:30. My friend that lives in Greenwich, CT ( use to live near EWR) he's making the trip all the way down  Smile.

See ya,

Ok so far head count is Myself, Chris, Vik, Dan, Mike (not on a.net) and Josh (not on a.net). Can anyone else confirm if they can go and how long they will be staying.
