Mini Man Meet 01/09

Sat Sep 02, 2006 5:32 am

Well, just got back from the Mini Man Meet.
Great day had by all. Pics are all below for you to see. I actually think it was a really good meet as there were only 6 of us, not a whole group wanting to do different things and the like. We had fun, got some great shots, and had a laugh. New friendships were made, old mates caught up with. A good day.

Thankfully the weather held up as well, just a little wind.
Night ended with a meal and laughs at the Romper.

Thanks for the guys that showed up, was amazing and glad i met u

Always good to see pics from MAN !  Smile I recognise some of the faces on those pics!  Wink Sam, you look so different since you changed your hair (oh shit, listen to me! Big grin).

And to think that people were enjoying MAN whilst I was at work. There is no justice in the world!  Angry

Great day indeed. Glad some of the locals could come and thanks to lew for the ride around. Weather is shitty there today so im in the city centre with Matt WS, and hopefully head back southside tomorrow.

What a very tired day for me but well worth it.

Was actually a really really nice meet, personal and smaller, how I prefer it Smile The flying was good too, the Dash 8 was an... experience, but one I really enjoyed, especially sitting backwards for landing thumbsup ! Thankyou Mr Anet taxi once again and everyone for a laugh and Brad I owe you a drink (haven't forgotten Smile)

ahhhh, what a flight back home!! I was quite actually surprised to depart Manchester nearly on time on Monday morning, only being 20 minutes late. I should have a trip report on that flight this week. Again, it's been a great weekend at the airport, the city, and drinking with fella' aviation folks and watching planes and getting kinda pissed off for not having my camera to shoot that Tupelov jet and chasing around the airport after hearing shitloads of sirens that evening. Grand moments. Definately one of the best cities in my books. Anyway, I'm off to London in 18 hours. :-P
