What has everyone got in mind for spotting trips/vacation for next year?

Up to now the only thing set in stone is a trip to Orlando in February, which although not a pure spotting trip, will hopefully include more spotting time than Disney time!

A few trips down to DC to watch aircraft and hot women at Gravelly Point (DCA) maybe a weekend in Boston.

I also hope to do a long weekend to Seattle to hit Boeing and catch up on my Alaska fleet. Toronto is also on my hitlist, as is a return trip to Chicago or a trip to Detroit!

As you can see, I have a long list, some of which will not happen in 2006, unless I win the lottery!

Turkey (Side, Manavgat) between New Year's Eve and January 7th.

Then sometime around March 21st (my girlfriend's birthday) I'm taking her to Eurodisney in Paris.

Early summer the Dominican Republic or Mexico.

Fall probably some kind of a spotting vacation in Dubai.

St. Maarten

Jammy git. I'll probably venture as far as NCL (my local) and BRS to see my friend. I seriously doubt I'll be flying anywhere else unless I win the lottery as I'm megga broke and need to sort myself out.

Right now, the only thing on the horizon vacation-wise for me is Las Vegas in June.

I'm soo excited to be going back to Egypt in January after being there in August.

BOS-LHR-LGW-HRG I leave Jan 4  Smile

Won't be staying in Hurghada though. We'll be in El Gouna (just north of Hughada on the Red Sea) and then to Luxor.

I'm hoping to go down to MEX sometime early next year as well  Smile

Summer 2006 I'll be going to Egypt and Jordan most likely.

I am planning an UAE/Iran trip in March. I want to fly on the Saha 707, the Iran Air Tours TU154, and hopefully also on the TU204 which was leased by Mahan Air lately. From THR I want to travel on to BKK to get a flight on the leased L1011 of a Mahan Air, if this is not possible, I'll try to fly on a L1011 of Thai-Sky.

I am also planning another USA trip for April or May next year.

I will be going to our summer house in Punta del Este, Uruguay in early January, possibly spending New Year's Eve there. Since we want to get there with our car, we'll be going either on a ferry or driving.

Afterwards, I will spend some time in Arusha, Tanzania, visiting my mother who moved there. I already have my tickets for February 1st, coming back to Buenos Aires on February 25th or so. The routing is completely crazy, since half is paid using Lufthansa miles, and half is paid by my mother's company: EZE-GRU-FRA-AMS-JRO - flying Business, of course  Silly

I might be going to Jujuy in December, but I'm still waiting to finish with my exams before booking a flight.

The rest of the year is still uncertain.

Saludos,
Marambio

Hey BigOrange!
DIO21 mentioned forming a gathering down in Venezuela and flying on a DC-3. I'd be up for that.
If not, I plan on visiting The Philipines, Thailand, China, possibly Mongolia and Turkey. Should be real interesting spotting there.

By the hair of my chinny chin chin, I'm planning a trip to Dubai..taking the JFK-DXB Emirates A345 in First. I've never flown long distance in first class, only business class, on miles at that. I'm probably going by myself, but that's how i like to travel, and have done many trips by myself, unless any of you a.netters want to join. I want to stay at the Burj Al-Arab, at least one night, just to say I did it.

If my plans on that don't follow through, I want to try the ATL-JNB route on SAA, perhaps in their premium product.

Does anyone here just take random trips across the globe to go only for the airplane ride? I do that a lot, well, not a lot, but I try to at least once a year. But, unfortunately this year, the only travelling I've done has been on CO, UA, and WN, two trips to Houston, and one trip to Fresno.

I think I go through widebody withdrawl if I don't get on one at least once a year.

Depending on when it is and how long it's for I might be up for that! Keep me posted.

I'm sure there are some hot chicks down there for the night time as well!

Going to Australia in March 2006 (easter). This trip includes: Aussie Airpass with Qantas Airline from LAX to Sydney, Sydney-Melbourne, Melbourne-Brisbane and Brisbane back to LAX.

The second trip will be sometime in July or August 2006. It will be a gay cruise through Atlantis Cruise and Events.

I can't wait!
