I'll hopefully be there on the Sunday, with my parents, but don't know if I can meet up.

Someone at church gave me tickets--for both a public day and a trade day!

For the public show, I plan to go on Saturday all day. I haven't chosen which weekday I want to use my trade ticket on yet. As I'm doing a summer lab research project at Guy's Hospital (for which I won a grant), I would need to ask for one day off that week so I could take advantage of my unexpected trade ticket.

There's going to be many more, I remember talking about this with Ian, DL021, in Paris last year. Should be a laugh. Sadly Aerobalance can't make it as he has lab duties to attend to!

*Edit* Thought I'd add Smithair to the list as well!

I was really looking forward to going, but sadly I will not be able to attened as I'm going to Nigeria to collect the $20million that my great uncle Cuthbert left me in his will.

Have fun everyone - hope the weather is as good as it was last time.

Er depends on what you are doing.

Gatwick is closer to Farnborough, but LHR is obviously better if you are staying in london town.

Ahem... Contrary to Alex's opinion that the work at my lab prevents me from having a real life, I must say that me and my g/f will be at Farnborough for at least the Friday trade day. I need to aclimatize her into the aviation world and meeting a bunch of a.nutters is the worst way to do it  Wink

Um, good question and i can't answer at the moment. Flights are a wee bit pricey.

If anything, it'll be a one or two night stand.

I'll be in MUC over that time, so a trip to Farnborough shouldn't be out of the question. Any cheap LCCs that would fit the bill?

Not sure about your dates, but i found $914 on Mytravel, arriving at Gatwick on July 17th, departing July 28th. Their A330's are a pretty good ride.

Thanks for your research.

Unfortunately, if i were to go it would be just for the weekend, 2 nights tops. The dates that i looked into were the actual show dates. And yes the 330 would be a good ride.

Hey Andy, if your going to travel all the way from downtown YOO to go to Farnborough, I might have to see if I can talk the accountant into letting me go too! Big grin

Don't hold your breath though, but we'll see.
