It's a meeting for all things to do with aviation, and the social side is to catch up with friends and people we have spoken to on here.
If some of us want to partake in the other attractions of Amsterdam as something on the side, I don't see a problem with that, but it wont affect anyone who doesn't want to do it. That is more likely to be on Friday night before most of us arrive.
I'm not that interested, but might go along just for fun as I've been to Amsterdam more than 10 times and never seen a show...
Anyway, I dont know, we shall see how we all feel about it at the time.

I'm just looking forward to meeting a.nutters in real life - see if there as bad as they seem ! Also hoping somebody will teach how to take aircraft pics properly ! I lived in AMS for a year in my youth, so I kind of did all the "attractions" already.

I think some people seem to have a few hang up's about Amsterdam.
It is not seedy and dirty as some seem to think and the red light area is actually one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city.
I've only been a couple of times, but each time the red light area was full of tourists walking through "just having a look".
It's one of those curiosity things, if you have never been and just "heard" about it, you build up all these images in your mind, and probably imagine a seedy dirty street with loads of dirty seedy men, but once you've seen it for yourself you find (well I did) that those images completely wrong and it is actually quite a pretty area and has a couple of good bars too.

I may be a Dutchman, but that doesn't mean I fancy all the filthy places in Amsterdam. In fact I'm ashamed of it. I'd like to avoid the red light district or activities related to that and coffeeshops at any cost.
I love both Airbus and Boeing as much as I love aviation!
