thanks to some things coming together I might be in UIO in 1,5 weeks time with my dad. We would be in for 2 or most likely 3 days (arrival in the morning on the first day with KLM), being the 17th-19th of May.
Main goal would be spotting. An old issue of Airliner World lists the 'Hotel Savoy Inn' (www.hsavoyinn.com) as the place to be. Is this true and are there other spotting locations? Perhaps other things we should be aware of?
The other big reason to come is to get some flights on 'real' aircraft. I read that TAME parked it's F-28's but I'd really love to fly on their 727's, Icaro's F-28s and perhaps their 732's (maybe aerogal?). AeroGal seems to be operating the 732 only on the UIO-GYE route (for EUR122 return, not bad). I really don't care where the aircraft takes me. Are there specific routes on which these aircraft operate?
Hope you guys can help,
For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and ther
