First let me say I was surprised to see how many folks are interested! The response was very positive!

I have developed a tentative schedule of events. At this point it is subject to change. Needless to say I have a lot of planning to do and I'm glad I started this process this far out ahead of time. If everything works out it will be a great time for sure for all involved!

Also note that if lunch is indeed catered as mentioned below and if Delta-provided transportation is arranged to/from tour locations, a small fee may be asked of attendees (no more than $5 USD I would estimate). Please let me know your thoughts on this.

I'm off on the 12th - 15th December. I'll check with the accountant and see if I can afford a wee trip abroad. I quite fancy seeing a bit more of ATL than the departure lounge!!

Might have to wait until I have been at VS 6 months, which is November, so I can get staff travel!!

I would love to come. I may have a bowling tournament that weekend. Unfortunately I won't know the dates on that until the time gets closer. If I end up bowling on another date, I'll get set for this as soon as possible.

Quoting Flynavy (Thread starter):
Tentative Schedule of Events

This tentative itinerary sure looks impressing !

I will keep an eye on this thread and see in the coming weeks if a short trip to the U.S. is manageable (at present I am running out of days off, but there is the negative chance that I have to shelve another family vacation in October in favour to an FDA inspection carried out at my employer).

For the moment I will stay off the maybe-list.

Ive got the option of both and if I do come along I'll probably arrive on the Friday and depart on Sunday. I may even have a bit of a tour of the East coast on some aircraft Ive never flown on and then head back to the UK from NYC.

Funny, I made that suggestion in the first thread on this meet:

Quote:
Another thought is perhaps a trip down to FFC to check out the war birds of the Dixie Wing of the Commemorative Air Force. Or perhaps a road trip down to the Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins.

I could definitely be up for it, as I haven't been down there since the summer of 1992. I keep saying that I'm going to head down there one Saturday but never do.
