SFO Gathering Sat. Aug. 11 Everyone Welcome

Tue Aug 07, 2001 8:29 am

Hello everyone! This Saturday August 11th. will be another Airliner.net gathering.
12:00PM, Gate 98 of the new International Terminal at SFO.
We will take photos, meet other photographers and forum members. I've been to a few already and they are very fun and informative. There will be many people showing up and this is an opportunity to meet the famed airline photographer Richard Silagi (Flygga) as well as ILUV767, and MichaelSFO before he returns to Italy as well as many others.
Don't worry, there will be no Airbus vs. Boeing fights at all! There never has been either.
So come on down and bring your camera! Big grin

I understand. I went to my 10 year reunion in June.
MichaelSFO is leaving for Italy a day later so he wanted to meet this weekend.
Don't worry if you miss this one, there will be others.

School starts for me in less than two weeks!

Hey, if on any particular weekday within the next 2 weeks someone is @ SFO around 3/4pm... give me an e-mail (SFOintern@hotmail.com). I get off work around then...

I can't attend on the 11th due to a party commitment.  Sad

I might be able to make it, depends on how YX's loads look. If I do, It'll be YX 918 arriving at S5...probably A/C N601ME.

Well actually I might be buddy-passing down to LA on United Shuttle for the weekend, leaving SFO sometime Saturday. I could catch an early afternoon flight, and not miss any of the festivities =) (like the TOUR!!!)

let me get back to you in the next day or two...

Superfly,

none of that now... no pot-shots at David just because he hasn't gotten an aircraft tour yet... I did a lot of the calling myself... you get the run-around quite often. I'll see what I can do, it's possible I might be able to come! I'll bring along my new Canon Elan 7E SLR... it depends on if the "new" car is available for me to take... the "old" car perished in flames while my family and I were flying somewhere over middle America on AA182 to JFK... more details if someone really wants to find out what happened...  Smile Anyways yea I'll try and get there!

Just ask an Agent for a tour. They might be able to take you into the plane, depending on if they want to do it (It also depends on any particular airline/station rules/Time Permitting/Captains Decision).

SFO Gathering Sat. Aug. 11 Or 9/1..?

Wed Aug 08, 2001 12:54 pm

No Drunken Germans allowed,,,,,  Big grin

(just teasing, Patrick...)

Don't forget, for all of us who can't make it the 11th, remember that the SFO BAAHS Airline Collectible show is Sept 1st, 2001...at the Grosvenor Airport Inn....just north of the UAL facility........(9am-3pm kids....)...possible less fog,,


maybe we can swing a late afternoon group after the show( I work with the show..) so I can drive over after 3pm and I'll have the F-350 w/ six-pack & ladder....

OH-LGA:
That was not intended to be a low-blow to David. David (ILUV767) is a great guy and I was glad he was able to get us the British Airways lounge. I know tours are difficult to get, especially with security issues surrounding travel today.
It would be great if you could make it. I'd like to see the new camera.

No problem Superfly... dang I always forget to put the smiley faces in when they're most needed...  Smile

Anyways... whatever makes you think that David got us the tour of the BA lounge? I did most of the calling, hence I was the one to get the Terraces lounge tour! David likes to take credit, but he's president and I'm PR Director so yea  SmileSo um yea... David should be flying home at the moment... should be back on California soil in a few hours (if he's not already)...

Hey,
I actually may make this one. Im flying into sfo tonight August tenth 8:55 from Cincinnati, a little earlier than expected, so maybe ill see you there. Does anyone know of a good cheap transportation to the airport. Im coming from my grandparents house, and they live right by that big tower (red and white) on top of that hill in the middle of the city, sort of near twin peaks? If someone has an idea could you post it here before 4:30 when i take my flight to Cvg? Thanks alot!

Superfly,

Thanks for organizing the bash. I haven't been on this forum for months (I discovered on-line dating and now have a new girlfriend who *understands* my airplane obsession) and I took up my flying lessons again. Busy Busy! It's good to still see a few familiar names on the forum. I will try making it to the event, and look forward to seeing everyone there.

Well here's the deal.

I have testing tomorrow at 1. After that, I'm going to try and hop on a Shuttle flight down to LA for the weekend. I checked loads and they're good.

Where will you guys be at 3:00? I'll meet you and hang out a little bit before my flight.

I hope you get this ASAP Superfly!

All right... I'm hopping off the fence... right into the cowpie (we have many dairy farms in almost any direction you travel leaving Petaluma) Big grin

But unfortunately I will not be able to make it. The car is to be in use around 1:30pm so my brother can go to a friend's going away party which is in the opposite direction of SFO. (his friends are moving somewhere far far away). Sorry, I would have loved to have been there.

I will however compensate by finishing up work on the BASA website (design centered around a wonderful photo by the fantastic Ben Wang!) and finding a place to put it that won't have nasty banners at the top of the page (the design is totally screwed up if it doesn't have the top of the page to itself).

Enjoy everyone, I'll try and make the next one. I will be in contact with our Board of Directors soon so we can plan a date for the next one. I'll call much earlier to arrange for an aircraft tour... the people at BA were so lovely, if I give them some time we may be able to get on their plane this time!  Smile Other airlines possible, if you can get me the phone number of their SFO office!

Happy Flying,
