I won't be able to make it after all. I had to make my trip this past weekend as I already had commitments on the 21st.

Unfortunately, I'm on call from work that weekend so I cant make it out. I was already in LAX, San Diego, and Newport Beach this past weekend for the MCAS Miramar Airshow.

Most likely. I'll be taking the AV Airport Express from and to PMD. Definitely wouldn't want to miss this one.

Take the blue Four Points/Hilton shutte to the central terminal area and you could connect with the Parking Spot shuttle (the one that heads to the Sepulveda garage) and it would take you there. If you don't feel like you want to mooch off Parking Spot, there's always the shuttle to Lot C and head north on Sepulveda which can be a bit of a walk but not as bad as walking all the way from the CTA.

l told you guys I haven't made up my mind yet. If I decide to go, I'll go. But I'll probably be incognito anyway.

Besides, if these Santa Ana's keep up, you guys hoping to see the 100 foot overhead flybys at In-N-Out are gonna be disappointed. Instead, of 100' and droppinng, you'll be getting 1000' and climbing.

Well, if it isn't one thing, it's another...

I'm gonna have to send apologies to stand in for me at this meet. Mr. Diva's mother was hospitalized yesterday, and although she was initially doing better tonight she seems rather iffy and I think I'd better stay close to home. Please, someone, have a cheeseburger (no onions) and a vanilla shake for me, okay?

Dang.
-Leanne

P.S. If anyone would keep our matriarch in your thoughts, that would be great. She's a tough lady for 91, but today was a very rough day and we'll feel a whole lot better when she's back home harrassing the telemarketers.
Thanks.

Leanne,

Your mother is in my thoughts and prayers. I have some bad news - I really wanted to go to this meet after initiating it. Due to ground incompetence @ IAD, I am missing my flight to LAX (I will tell everyone after a few needed shots). Can someone PM me their mobile number and I will try to be there for drinks?

Thanks and apologies,
A.

Great meet guys! Hopefully we could do something like that again later! Big grin Sorry that you weren't able to make it, Abrelosojos.  Sad

BTW MD90fan, is it possible for you to post some extra shots from the meet or e-mail them? Unfortunately I didn't think twice of using my camera.  Sad

= Totally sucked. I was stuck in IAD and missed my onward connection to LAX because the super intelligent CSA could not figure out how to check me out of a flight and into a new one. An excerpt of our conversation:
Her: "You are checked in for 899."
Me: "Um, I missed 899. 1K confirmed me on 59."
Her: "Oh ya. But you are checked in for 899."
Me: "Well, I need to be on 59 as I clearly have missed 899."
Her: "I cant check you in. Computer does not allow me to. I am sorry."

Anyways, she had to call 2 people and then finally get a supervisor ... needless to say, I missed UAL 59 to LAX and the meet-up. Many apologies and I definitely hope I will see everyone soon. Great foto.

Cheers,
A.

Hello everyone, I sincerely had a blast. It was good putting faced behind screennames. Great conversations too. Drew: maybe we have to meet next time just so you can get your new VS livery in its entirety? Keep in touch everyone.

Too bad I couldn't make it. I was there around noon yesterday, so just missed you guys. But I had to leave to get home in time for work. However I was lucky enough to have a Lufthansa 744, Malaysian 744, and Air France 773 fly over me in a matter of just 10 minutes or so. There was also some big ruckus around a Southwest 737 sitting at a gate during that time. About 5 or so ambulances and firetrucks drove by me in the park there and then I could see them sitting over by the plane. Anyone hear anything on the news or have any info in general?
