The previous thread got archived ...

Plan is to meet up at the Airport Pub (& Hotel) located on Ringway Rd for spotting and downing some local brew.
Either walk from T3 or take the bus to get there, if not arriving by individual transport (car, bike, tank, ...).

Any venue for Saturday evening is still to be decided.

I'll copy the most recent list into reply #1.

Thanks, this reminded me to get a flight booked. Saturday flights have gone this year, so I'm coming up on the Friday before - it still beats 6 hours on the train. Will be stopping in the Airport Pub/Hotel I expect, but I've yet to confirm that. Probably departing from LPL to AMS on Sanday morning/afternoon as I need to take a FB segment to keep my miles current.

My Employer is expecting company-internal 8-day inspection, scheduled to end Thursday prior to the meeting at MAN. This somehow puts my booked flights (departing for GLA on Wednesday evening, and intensive flying to the Outer Hebrides on Thursday) at question. Will have to re-negotiate with my boss to let me go on vacation as planned.
So far I am keeping my flights & hotel reservations.

Might be a good time for me to check ferry timetables from Belfast to Liverpool. Being stuck a few miles over the sea would just be painful.

It used to be October, November days are far too cold and short!

Might have to look at starting a LHR meet thread after the weekend.
