London Heathrow Get Together...

Fri Jan 04, 2002 6:19 pm

Hello, seeing as the MAN get together has turned out a great success with quite a few people on the books to turn up i thought id get something else started.
Can anyone get to LHR towards the end of Febuary?
If so, or if you have any suggestions just reply and we can sort something out.......
Kind Regards

I could probably make it if it wasn't from sometime in January to sometime in February, as my only means of transport (my dad) is going back to French Guyana to launch his dumb rocket or satellite or whatever the hell it is.

I'd have to fly down from Newcastle - but that could be arranged. Best on a Saturday when everyone's got nothing to do.

I still can't confirm the NCL meeting GKIrk. I still don't know if I'm going this year, and I certainly don't know which days I would be at the airport.

You been spotting there before GKirk?
If so, where from and did you take any pics?

I'd be working at LHR on a friday, but I usually finish at 14:45, 10:30 if I take a half-day, so no problem. Saturdays are free.
Ryan741, I'll e-mail you, if you could keep me up to speed on what's happening nearer the time?

I live closer to LHR than most and would look forward to a get together at my local....looks like I'm on holiday the last week of Feb so I may not be able to make it.

Although if you guys choose 23/02 I will expect a few good shots of AA137 taking off!!

Hopefully I'll be able to participate in a more meaningful way.

Vaguely interested. Depends on the date, the workload in terms of due lab reports, tutorial sheets, coursework etc....

Just keep this thread alive, and I'll see if i can come along. (Definitely not before the 16th of January, though...)

Saturdays would suit me best, too. Has the added advantage of more Russian /Eastern European airliners...

Regards

Well I'm working both those Saturdays,so although I can get to LHR on either of those two days,the 9th would be marginally better.

You should post this on the civil aviation forum. I'm from HKG and we spotters in HK have had a great response from posting topics about our spotting trips to CLK airport on that forum. A number of people have asked to join.

How often do you LHR spotters on a.net meet up? Next time I come to London, I've really like to meet some of you!
See my homepage for a comprehensive guide to spotting and photography at HKG

My vote goes to Feb 9th,my employers are being a**holes at the moment and not allowing anyone to take any leave so it looks like I'll only be there till lunchtime which is unfortunate seeing as the afternoon is better for photography.

I can do 9/2 if there is anyone else going to be there. It will need a flight down from NCL in the morning but I will see what happens.

Could we get a list of those who are confirmed - would be ashamed to waste a ticket for nothing!

Unfortunately I'm caught up in this South West Trains vs RMT train strike business and untill it is sorted out I can't take ANY leave,so if the dispute is settled I'll be there-if not I can't manage more than a few hours in the morning.
