Hello, seeing as the MAN get together has turned out a great success with quite a few people on the books to turn up i thought id get something else started.
Can anyone get to LHR towards the end of Febuary?
If so, or if you have any suggestions just reply and we can sort something out.......
Kind Regards
EGFF

I would be interested - LHR is my local airport.  Smile

I could probably make it if it wasn't from sometime in January to sometime in February, as my only means of transport (my dad) is going back to French Guyana to launch his dumb rocket or satellite or whatever the hell it is.

I'd have to fly down from Newcastle - but that could be arranged. Best on a Saturday when everyone's got nothing to do.

I still can't confirm the NCL meeting GKIrk. I still don't know if I'm going this year, and I certainly don't know which days I would be at the airport.

You been spotting there before GKirk?
If so, where from and did you take any pics?

I'd be working at LHR on a friday, but I usually finish at 14:45, 10:30 if I take a half-day, so no problem. Saturdays are free.
Ryan741, I'll e-mail you, if you could keep me up to speed on what's happening nearer the time?

I live closer to LHR than most and would look forward to a get together at my local....looks like I'm on holiday the last week of Feb so I may not be able to make it.

Although if you guys choose 23/02 I will expect a few good shots of AA137 taking off!!

Hopefully I'll be able to participate in a more meaningful way.

Vaguely interested. Depends on the date, the workload in terms of due lab reports, tutorial sheets, coursework etc....

Just keep this thread alive, and I'll see if i can come along. (Definitely not before the 16th of January, though...)

Saturdays would suit me best, too. Has the added advantage of more Russian /Eastern European airliners...
