Hi all, im curious to know wether theres any plans or planning on a next UK based A.net meet, anyone got any ideas for LHR or MAN or anywhere else?
If so I'd be coming this time lol.

I would assume May would be the best time for the next meet. Considering FRA next month, then the weather would be warmer (well, sort of) and the summer charters start, so there would be more traffic. Instead of LHR/MAN, why don't we try something different and try, lets see, IOM? LOL, hehe.

Rumors are that ZRH or GVA may be our next target, but there is always a few of us down LHR every now and then...

There is a pub in the warmth of the terminal where you can spot from, I think that is a cunning plan Kirkie Big grin

The pub at the Travel Inn (opposite the airport) is good, and another called Millers (I think) 2 minutes away.

Yeah, on the road that runs parallel to the runway. It's called either Millers or Milligans, one of them.

Surley there is going to be one at MAN this year, I couldn't make the last one since I had flown off to RHO with KM about 3 days earlier  Sad

You know there are pubs and clubs in Manchester Kirkie?

We also have a nice pub at the end of our busier than NCL runway, apply named "The Airport" - very imaginative don't you think  Big grin

£30 with transpennine from Newcastle to Manchester Picadilly GKirk. And from picadilly to MAN is only £2,50 if I remember correctly.

Stay home a saturday night, and you've got the cash...  Smile
