YYZ Meet July 23-24

Tue Jul 05, 2005 9:27 am

Hello my fellow a.netters! After much pushing and shoving, I have decided to start a new thread for the YYZ Meet on the 23rd and 24th of July. This seems to be the most convenient time for the majority of those who responded to the previous thread.

I have to say that I can't make it on the 23rd until the evening, as my dad is departing that day to Europe and he needs a ride, plus it's the last day he's here until he goes on vacation for a month. So, I will be around by approximately 7pm. I am looking forward to the best part anyhow, which is the dinner and drinks either by the airport or downtown. Trust me, good times are to be had when this happens.  Smile I will be available on Sunday for those who are still around too.

So ... who's coming, and when, and where are you staying? The more the merrier! I look forward to meeting some new people and helping out however I can.

Ohhh well if you insist on knowing, i shall tell......

I'll be there (with my friend) on 23rd/24th, staying at Days Inn T3....i'll be driving a North Dakota registered Buick which you won't be able to miss!! I did book two double beds which means if someone needs somewhere to sleep then there's a bed available (if the hotel gave us the second bed) plus i have spare room in the back of the car to ferry ppl around. I'm lookin forward to seeing everyone and i might bring my guitar, coz Curtis said he'll sing! lmao

I'll be there on the 23 rd.

Are we meeting at our "regular" meeting area..... Wendy's? I dunno if 23 will be in use on that date?

....maybe Fedex? Meet on the hill?

Anyways, i'll be doing the dinner thing and if all goes well (my headache problem  Sad ) i will tag along for the post dinner adventures.

Unfortunately 23 will not be widely used, as it is shortened until August I believe. They are upgrading it to be CAT III capable. We will figure out meeting place and time as it gets closer, but keep in mind I wont be there for the start.

Sounds like a plan Nuno.

Seeing as I am already taking that week off from work, I may scoot up there for the weekend. Especially now that we have a good showing of out of towners.

I will be coming in the evening of the 23rd on NWA around 6 pm. I'll come meet you guys as soon as I can after I land. I won't be able to stay longer than an hour but I'll be able to say hi at least! If it's possible, could you hold off on dinner until after I get there? My mother-in-law will have dinner ready for me so I won't be able to have dinner with you guys.

Isn't that weekend also the Caribana Festival? Or is that the following week?

After mulling it over a bit, I am in for Saturday the 23rd; will stay the night in T.O. for sure. Who is planning on being in town in time for Friday evening? I am thinking about staying downtown that night, perhaps we can get a group up and have fun down there. It would be a shame for the out-of-towners to see nothing of Toronto but Pearson Int'l.



Nope, the following weekend.

my flight is due to arrive on Friday the 22nd @ 10:52 p.m.

I haven't booked yet but the only other option would be AA (non stop) which would get me there much earlier that day. Depends on what the plans are, I can always go with AA.

In a shocking move the powers at work granted my request for 23-24 off. I have to wait a day or so to see if we will arrive Friday or Saturday. The entire clan will make the trip and depending on how Lizzie is doing she might make an appearance.

I hope to see everyone again and hope the weather is nice, It was a bit chilly last time i saw everyone!!.

Nuno please post more details as they come together.


Again I hope we have a great turn out this year and I hope to see everyone soon.

So, so far the list is:

ScarletHarlot (SEA, evening of 23rd only)
IHAP (BUF, arrival date uncertain, leaving Sunday night?)
CORulez05 (FLL, arriving Friday night, leaving Sunday night)
DesertJets (SYR, joining us on the 23rd)
AC777LR (YYC? YYZ?, dates unspecified)
Skysurfer + friend (Kingston, coming to YYZ very very early on the 23rd  Smile, 24th too )
Captaingomes (local, joining us at 7 pm on the 23rd, 24th)
YooYoo (YOO, local, joining us on the 23rd)
C-GRYK (Local, "One of the days")
CurtisMan (YYC (right?), arriving Friday night, leaving Sunday night)

Phyllis (Vaporlock) should be joining us too, and hopefully it will be when I'm there, because I want to meet that girl! And we also had expressions of interest from EmiratesA345, NorthStarDC4M, Lnglive1011yyz, Mr. Spaceman, Canuckpaxguy, WhyWhyZed, MattRB, KLMA330, and Mir.

Sounds like a good bunch!

I am sitting here in a little town called Trikala in 42 degree weather sweating like crazy at some busy little Internet cafe.

lol, well, now that the full length of runway 05/23 is back in service, I suggest a meeting at 1:30pm, Saturday July 23 at the Wendy's/Country Style on Airport Rd under the approach path for rwy 23. I can probably make it for then and hang around for an hour or so, and then join the group again in the evening as previously mentioned.

Anyhow, that is my suggestion. It's a good time for most people I'd imagine, and those who want to join in later can communicate using cell phones, etc.

Finally, given that I am far more busy these days than I was back when I organized these things at YYZ, we should have some sort of a.net reality event where a new member is appointed to take care of YYZ gatherings. I can always remain as VP to make sure the newbie doesn't put our fine airport and its people to shame.  Wink

In all seriousness though, I'm looking forward to more replies and to get a better idea of who's joining us.

Nuno, I'll help in any way I can - I just haven't lived in Toronto for ten years (and even then I only lived in Oakville for less than a year!). But let me know what I can do to help.

I know you guys will probably be hungry Saturday night, but if you can wait for dinner until I get there to say hi, I'd appreciate it. Of course, if you can't wait, I'll come find you, as long as you're around the airport.

I've heard talk of Sat night dinner at the Keg (Dixon & Carlingview, just off the 24s). Not sure what's up for Friday night, but there are a few bars around the airport if we're just looking to drink & relax.

Just hope it cools down some by then..

And yup Scarlet, I'm a local (Brampton).

Sounds great. That's where a lot of aviation enthusiast groups meet. Hopefully runway 23 will be active for arrivals while we're there ..... rwy 23's approach lights are only about 500 feet north of Wendy's!  airplane

Even if 23 isnt in use, there are alternatives UNLESS the approach is for the 13s. 24s/23 (wendy/Arizona/FedEx), 5/6s (FedEx) or 31s (Flightcraft/Vanguard drive) we should be able to get somewhere decent. 13s though... not gonna see much decent. Also, bad thing about Wendy's is it's often busy with families and kids running around.

Just to let you guys know, we shall be having similar (if smaller) Meet at LHR on the same dates, so what CurtisMan (who is planning on attending YYZ) and myself though might be cool would be for those of us at LHR to try and photograph an AC or BA aircraft departing for YYZ, and for you guys to then try and get shots of the same aircraft when it arrives at YYZ (and of course we post pics on A.Net!)

Sound possible?

Saturday afternoon usually sees a BA 744 (sked has one arriving at 1425EDT, dep LHR @ 1155z, FLT #93). If 23 & 24 are active, chances are we'll see it over at Wendy's.

AC has a few a/c leaving that day for LHR, the majority departing in the eveing after 6PM and arrive +1 to LHR. If I'm out early enough on Friday evening, I'll try and grab a shot of AC856 (A343, arr LHR +1 @ 0625z).

The BA flight is probably our best bet to catch the same a/c.
Aviation is proof that given, the will, we have the capacity to achieve the impossible.

Hello NorthStarDC4M.

Quoting NorthStarDC4M (Reply 41):
Even if 23 isnt in use, there are alternatives UNLESS the approach is for the 13s.

Oh for sure, you are correct. Most of us who frequent YYZ know every nook & cranny around the airport for the sake of spotting.

Just so you know,YYZ doesn't have a runway 13L/31R & 13R/31L, they are runways 15L/33R & 15R/33L. Big grin Anyhow, I used to work at Skycharter Ltd, (a Bizjet FBO VERY near runway 15L's threshold), and you can get some excellent views over there from the bottom of Vanguard Drive (where the new Crash Rescue Firehall is). We could park along the side of the road and party in the field there if that runway is active.

PS. Did you ever wonder if most large Intl Airports around the world have spotters using the parking lots of "Strip Clubs" to sometimes take their photos from? .... like the few around YYZ that I use for 06L/R and 24L/R.  Silly

Hey guys,

Saturday afternoon would work well on that weekend, if at all possible. Where abouts is the Wendy's? Is there public Transport from DT, if no rides are available?

Thanks!
Billy.

Quoting CurtisMan (Reply 43):
Capital ... can you check some of the skeds and decide which a/c you and we will photograph and exactly which date. Post the details here before next Wednesday and I'll make sure we try and snap some pics.

Our group will be probably be spending most time at LHR on Sunday 24th, so the best options may be to look for the following:

AC863 343 Dep LHR 11:05 Arr YYZ 2:00pm
BA0093 744 Dep LHR 11:55 Arr YYZ 2:25pm
AC857 333 Dep LHR 1:00pm Arr YYZ 3:55pm

Our best chance from our end will probably be the first two, so will try and get shots of both AC863 and BA0093 leaving LHR, with AC857 as our back-up!
