Mini-Meet At MME This Weekend? (May 3rd)

Mon Apr 27, 2009 1:59 pm

This coming Sunday sees the arrival of a VS A340-300 at MME around 1400. Is anyone going down to see a possibly once in a lifetime chance of seeing such a beauty at MME? BTW does anyone know the best place to park up besides the airport car park?

What's the weather forecast? It's tempting as it's so near; depends whether or not I have the time.

This would be something to see bearing in mind that MME doesnt get a lot of traffic these days ( compared to what it used to ).
Unfortunately Im off work on Saturday and working Sunday. If only my days off were the other way around  Sad


As Babybus says, does anyone know why the A340 is there? Is it a charter back to Poland for all the Polish people in Middlesburgh Big grin

An A380 wouldn't be big enough to take them back as they are all desperate to get back to Poland, apparently. The VS is a MOD charter to Calgary. It was supposed to be a A346 but was changed a couple of days ago to the A343.

I would have gone, but I'll be in LPL watching the Toon get trounced.  Sad
