Anybody knows how and when will the olympic torch arrive at MEX?

I was wondering "si vamos en bola" maybe they'll let us take some photos of TF-ARO.

Q.

Apparently the torch rally will start at 7 A.M. therefore aircraft will get here before 7AM on Tuesday 15th! And it's schedule to end the tour at 7 P.M. so very few possibilities for getting a decent picture  Sad. More over it will be arriving at the president's Hangar and security Im sure its going to be very tough and worst 'si vamos en bola'.... but we can give it a try....! Perhaps we could rent a Cessna and fly from Atizapan and overfly MEx over the corredor I think MEA its 12 thousand... perhaps to high....

I meant "bola" as in a very organized, aviation photography hobbyists-group asking permission to the right authorities, so it not would appear as a mere person, but a legitimate effort to get recognized as that, aviation enthusiasts with a camera.

12 thousand feet MEA are a lot of feet AGL

There must be somebody we can talk to, and maybe we should start by getting the names and data (id's) of everyone interested in this effort.

Right right! Perhaps we can go to Terminal II and speak with the Adminstrator? Could work! As you say lets make a list! Unfortunately I don't know anyone, you have any info of someone we can start contact with?

12TH yeap! It's exactly something around 5TH ft AGL...

Well, maybe if we go wielding machetes....

I wish I could go too, but this tuesday is impossible for me (unless it is in the early morning).

Once doing a photo session for AeroMar, VW people introduce me with the Terminal II and the 'East Side of MMMX' administrator. That was a year ago. Ignore if he still there. Was a friendly person, perhaps we can go and look for him at terminal II tomorrow. But I think its going to be really hard since aircraft its going to be parked at the president hangar and MAF its involved!

Right now a friend who could probably help us came to my mind... I'll see what I can do!
