Hi lee!

How are you? Fine I hope.
Where exactly is Farnborough? I mean where do I have to fly to. It's gonna be a daytrip for me if I go. What does a ticket cost for the show?

Best regards,
Sander



I love both Airbus and Boeing as much as I love aviation!

Hi H.

I asked her before I posted, and she said the 25th.........but either way, I'm off both days that weekend so I'm easy.

I knew you said you were coming, but I didn't want to ASS-U-ME, as you know what that means in Aviation.  Laugh out loud

Sander,

The best place to fly to would be LGW or LHR. They are closest to the airfield, but both will involve either a bus or train journey of some sorts. Tickets cost approx £20 to get in. I can collect you from either if you are coming. Let me know.

Glenn,

Nope, thats cool. We will probably have to arrange to meet when we are there, unless you know some fixed location that we could specify in advance.

I'm not foo familier with the layout, only been once.

Lee,

If I go I'll probably fly to LGW with BA. I'll arrive at 7:10 and my flight back to AMS will leave at 19:35 the same day.

You can still collect me there if I go? Otherwise how long will it take by public transport?

Best regards,
Sander

hey, I won't be there but the best landmark to meet is down the street from Barrons BMW agency. It is a short walk to the main entry gate from there and busses to the train station are easily found near there. Your other best choice is to park down past the gate almost to Aldershot where you will find carparks with shuttles to the show.


Is my Pan Am ticket to the moon still good?
