that is good to see more of Hoosier native start to reply about this. It would be good for people that live in Indy or state of Indiana to get together to spotters at IND or whatever and have a gather to talk and have good time. More of club house for aviators. LOL!!

If I had a Twin Commander you'd never see my ass on here lol. I love to cook so keep it in mind. Of course I'd have to convince the wife and since I haven't been behaving much lately (abusing the bank account for personal reasons lol) its going to take some begging.
I have been to Indianapolis for a few days recently and stayed near IND:
When talking about spotting and photography, would would be your intentions ? Not that I am likely to join, but I found spotting locations around IND rather limited.
The top deck of the parking garage will put some a/c into your view.
One will need a rather long lens for good shots (something that I do not have, as can be seen by my rather bad pic's taken early May 2007).
Anybody with a better spotting location ?
The end of W Hanna Ave (where the road now turns in to a gravel road and hits the altered I-70 (= past the weather guys), gives some views of FX's apron, but "good" I would not say.
While sitting around there, I say a guy on the I-70 sliproad stopping his car, getting out of it for some pictures and then continue his drive. What would have been the fine for such a behaviour if the police / Highway Patrol would have came along ?
Carpe diem ! Life is too short to waste your time ! Keep in mind, that today is the first day of the rest of your life !

What does everyone here like to eat? There is a TGI Fridays in the airport. I don't know how good it is for gatherings though. There is an area towards the back where you can see out the window. Its is more out of the way. Could be good. Maybe a cookout? Dinner somewhere else? Party?

I'm in ATL right now for 75F training and am scheduled to do more training at either EWR or IND soon. I could non-rev to either to make a meet. I've been trying to meet up with Anet member Indy for some time now.
Quoting UPSMD11 (Reply 2): so those FX guys will have to take some ribbing!
Please...IND is our home turf. You'd be getting the ribbing sir.
Let me know when you guys have dates for the IND meet.

I used to live in Indy when I worked for Rolls-Royce - at lunchtime would go down the South Perimeter Road, there's a car park there just beyond the FedEx apron, seemed pretty good for spotting, close to the southerly runway although would be limited to side-on pics and not catch some of the action elsewhere on the field.
