Monsieur Kirk,

If we were going to do it, firstly it would have to be at BHX or MAN, because they are the easiest to get to for everybody, secondly because they have decent traffic and lastly decent places to spot!

Hey Guys! Well me and the ugly one (GKirk)  Laugh out loud have decided that it should be at 'Manchester'
A date is not yet decided yet but we need a few more people to come before anything is certain yet! The plan is...a day spotting at MAN and a few drinks later! If anyone is worried about getting there, if you fly 'Go' from Stansted it's only £30 return, not gonna break the bank  Smile We need to get a list sorted, i will update the list daily, here's how it is so far:-

1.) EGFF
2.) GKirk
3.) EGGD

If it is a worldwide gathering, an airport in the real world should be chosen. This precludes any and all airports in the United Kingdom and the United States  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
Amsterdam Schiphol is a good alternative.
Not only are there excellent connections to the world, but the catering is also taken care of by a Burger King (open again after a major fire earlier this year) and 2 (TWO) MacDonnalds restaurants (loosely termed) within easy reach of the premises.

Hello DeltaSFO, yeh we have got a month set, but not a date....at the moment it stands at March 2002, give people time to save up for flight fare as many of us are flying there, some , like me are booking into a hotel for the night so if you are upto that we can all book into one room (like they do on PPruNe) it's upto you......

Hey. Count me in if its MAN. I can drive there in four hours. Who's bringing the beer? I suggest May/June because the weather is better, more daylight and the sun gets right into all the right spots for photos all round the field.

I've been keeping an eye on this thread as it's quite amusing. Thom@s, you can get to the UK on FR from Gothenburg (if you can get there) at a price of £0.15 each way plus taxes! Got to be tempting?

Hello,

As mentioned above (by Lindy), ZRH on January the 6th sounds fine by me. ZRH is the spotting capital of Europe.

About neutrality, I live in Ireland so one can attack that.
