If it's going to piss down both days, I won't come. However, If the sun decides to show-up, so will I.

Dripstick, your "fairweather" spotter. Big thumbs up

BTW - I 'll leave the weapons at home.

I'll have to check my schedule for the weekend, right now Saturday looks like a good day.

Gmonney, I'll email you by Thursday to let you know what my intentions are.

The Rolling Stones arrived at YYZ today (in a private 727, if 680-News is to be believed).

As they are here until Sat....I presume their 727 will be as well. Anyone seen it?

I did see it on the news but it was dark outside.

Looked like white with a blue~ish stripe along the side and dark tail.

It's too bad I didn't meet more of you when I was in town over the weekend. You all missed my chorus of "booooooo's" whenever a WJ plane landed and thunderous applause when AC landed (my hands were sore after a few hours). And of course, laughting and pointing whenever AA, Comair or ASA landed (the FAA apparently doesn't teach crosswind landings to it's ATPs). It was pricelss, hahahahahaha!

Next time I'm around, I'll try to be more flexible to meet more of you. Enjoy your weekend!



buhh bye

Didn't see nor hear about the Stones flying into town. However, I should be able to make it over to Pearson for either of the two days to go see some airplanes.
Threshold Aviation is a good place to meet. For those aviation enthusiasts and employees alike, it's a great place to purchase all your aviation related paraphernalia. FedEx is where we can begin our planespotting event. We can then discuss whatever arrangments for visiting the roof-top of T1.
As a matter of fact, you can swing by Threshold Aviation enroute to FedEx. Pop in and say hello.

Lymanm...why don't you like Westjet?

I love WJ for many reasons, including:
1. They are not based in YUL (unlike AC, which is forced to be).
2. They do not fly to YUL (they seem to be profitable WITHOUT YUL service).
3. They fly NG's, not plastic.
4. They DO fly to YYZ.
5. They are putting YHM on-the-map!
6. They are profitable (subsidized by no govt).
7. They are Canada's proud answer to Southwest and Ryanair.
8. No passenger ever gets food poisoning on a WJ flight.

I could go on and on......

 Big thumbs up

It seems like the majority think Saturday is a good day.

Is this a safe assumption to make plans for?

Sundays are usually more popular, but we'll wait for a consensus. I think I can make a short visit either day, so whatever happens is ok with me.

Will aim for Saturday, weather permitting. If I have to shovel out of my driveway, I ain't coming.  Big thumbs up
