TPA Meet 2007

Fri Mar 30, 2007 9:33 am

Granted. This will not be as popular as the YYZ meet or most of those over across the pond, but I'd like to plan a TPA meet for this year. Specifically, either April 21, 22, or 23. I will be in the TPA area, and would like to get together with some people for a fun day of planes, planes, talk, planes.... You get the idea. Yea, I know most of the spots, but there are still more I don't know yet, I'm sure

I fly down on 4-20 (midday flight, anyone who wants to take some pics of my plane arriving is welcome to do so  Wink ) and leave the 24th.. Hence the 3-day window..

So, anyone for a TPA meet?

Finding myself carless once again, I should have added the caveat that I need to catch a ride with someone in the MCO area, much like I had to do to get to the great TPA meet in 2005. So if anyone is coming from that direction (I-4 and SR 535) I'll throw down for gas money.

Sorry Boyz and Girlz,

Had to do a lot of cleanup in here . . . .

Some of you had posts deleted that referenced a certain user's posts, and had other meet info in the post as well. You'll have to repost.

Hey, you know, it occurs to me you wouldn't HAVE to do that if you'd ignored that certain user . . .  duck

I am feeling sunday, as I have to call the day off from work to pick my grandma up from the airport that day at 4, so if a lunch date was scheduled down sunday, I could do monday, but i have school so I would have to drive up their, and be there say 3 if i am lucky, and beyond that, if i met up with you guys at 3 we would have to catch dinner, i am not crossing the bridge again until atleast 7 when traffic die down, rush hour is a bitch once you get across the howard franklin, ulmetron, 118, and park blvd are disasters.

so anyways let me know what the final date is, This would be my first meet, i am excited...

Ozell and everyone, the final meeting place is yet to be decided. I will likely be out there eeeeearly.. but of course, the winds will determine will we will all be, and if some people are coming later then others then we will ahve to let them know en-route..

Please email me if you have not already, I will provide my cell #. Probably friday or saturday, we will see who will be arriving when. Last time a bunch of us met at one of the local malls. However, if the 18's are in use it would almost be better to meet at the bowling alley..

I don't know yet.

Okay.

A quick recap of the 22nd

I arrived at the airport before Ozell, and Dan met me at the top of the parking deck. We spotted for a while until we got a call from Ozell. Well, we went to a new spot I had never been to before. A cop came up, and chatted with us for about 20 minutes or so. Really nice guy. Even gave us his cell in case we get hasseled. He also mentioned that he goes to a.net a lot when he works.. cooool.. He had his laptop in the car.

TPAnx met us there, and after a little while we went to a good spot for rotations. We were there for quite some time.

Long story short, we spotted spotted spotted.. Then lunch time. TPanx went home..

We went to Wing House. Ozell's suggestion.

Food was good. Afterwards was better  Wink

http://home.comcast.net/~michiganapa/winghouse.jpg
Be sure to click the pic and get full size  Wink
Yeah, that was fun. Dan is on the left.. Anyway, more spotting ensued..

Dan went back to the hotel to sleep as he had been up for a while, leaving me to spot alone.
Well, I found a new spot for me and went there. it is at one of the lots.
I had emptied my memory card at lunch, so I had a fresh one ready to go.
After about 600 pics, Ozell showed back up and we went to another spot for a while, to catch the BA 777.
After that we went to where I was before. I found out the 727 that had arrived the previous day was going to depart soon.
While waiting for it, I took more and more pics. Filled up my memory card.
I quickly switched out my card for another as the 727 was about to go. I put the other card in my pocket.
After the 727 left, Ozell and i left the airport
I got back to my grandma's where I was staying, and went to unload the card that was full
IT WAS MISSING!!!!!!!

I drove right back out to TPA, where it would have dropped, but it was not there.. oh well.. Just planes and more pics similar to above  Wink
Next day, Dan and I went looking for it and spotted some more. NEedless to say, we did not find it.

Anyway, it was a great trip

Dan- thanks for coming out. Hope you had fun
Ozell- Next time we'll spot some more, maybe more wing house as well
TPAnx- Next time I hope you can make it again.
FFIS34- Sorry you could not make it. I hope your dad is feeling better


Dan, Ozell, TPAnx, feel free to post your thoughts too  Smile

Chris, Thanks for coming down. I highly enjoyed the trip and we will have to plan another one. Maybe at DTW in the summer. MCO/TPA sucks in the summertime due to the heat. I E-Mailed the Airport Cop and he told me to let him know the next time we are in the area. That still sucks about the memory card though  Sad

Ozell, I enjoyed meeting with you and hope to see you soon. I forgot to get your cell phone #. I will send you a PM.

TPAnx, It was also great meeting you to. You have a cool job. Go Red Sox! I will let you know the next time I am in the TPA Area.

I hope next time I will have a camera like you guys so I dont have to act British and log Registration Numbers.
