Any Interest In A PHX Meeting?

Fri Dec 14, 2001 12:31 pm

Now that the weather is tolerable and all.

We can count the WN 737's and HP 320's...get excited about the occasional FedEx DC-10...

Just looking for interest.

Jeff, sounds interesting, but my question is where would we hang out at now that all concourses are sterile? Isn't there some restaraunt by the airport that has good views (maybe good beer as well) too?

I'll be up in Phoenix for the holidays for a week or so... I would do anything to get out of the house too.

I don't think T4 parking garage is off limits, you just get your car searched when you enter the garage. The restaurant you are refering to is the Left Seat Restaurant, which is on Air Lane, just north of the north runway. I believe it has a rather limited view of the airport. Nevertheless, I'd still be interested.

Well I havent gone out to PHX much lately... but i will be doing so often during the holidays... I am unsure of the situation on the parking garages but I know a couple other great area's that i shall attempt next week. The left seat restaurant is great during summer months but not now! it faces south right into the sun! so that is not an option really unless you just want to watch! Hey TWA dont forget the BA 777, and Lufthansa A340 we get to make it a bit more interesting! Well anyways Im interested to meet up! lets get some dates together!

Cheers!

How about LAX Big Cargo? You still get WN 737s and HP A320s but more international variety.

I don't think the 26th will work for me. I have to work that day.  Sad

It would have to be 12/22 or 12/23 for me.

Okay, at the very least we should all get together at Term 4 parking 12/23 in the AM...

Not much of plan, but it's a start.

Has anyone been down to sky harbor during the AM hours recently? I only ask to see what the usual arrival and departure runways are. I work at Troon country club up in the mountains, and I see all afternoon and evening arrivals flying down south for a 25/26 arrival... AM used to always be RWY 8/7 in use. So if anyone has noticed what is in use prehaps we start off at terminal 2 parking garage?!? Just a quick jump across the street brings you to a nice elevated area over the fence, clear of obsturction as well. great place for arrival, departure, and taxi shots plus the south will be at your back all day! just a suggestion... sound good to anyone else if 7/8 is in use? Also does this mean we will do the 23rd and the 26th as well?

Cheers!

Brian,

Seems to me like 7/8 are in use in the AM. Don't know the Term 2 area you mentioned.

Jim,

Gimme the URL for the Yahoo club! That sounds cool.

I work during the week, so I can only do 12/26 in the evening. Available all day on 12/22 and 12/23.

Just say when and where... if my work schedule allows, I'll be there. Best day(s) for me would be Sunday, Monday, or Tuesday.

So far as I know, the rooftop level of the terminal 2 parking ramp is a possible hangout -- great view of runway 8/26 and its taxiway for eastbound departures plus great sun angles for photographers through much of the day during the Winter months. Also gives a decent view of action on the 7L/R parallel runways.

Indeed it is a shame that not everyone can be there at the same time.

I'm definetly in for the 23rd. I've only spotted from Term 4 parking so I'm open to any suggestions!

Name the time and place, and I'll be there.

Hey Jeff... If you are only familiar with the T4 spot then you will probably love some of the other spots around the airport that get you much closer to the action and have no obstruction in the way! Anyone know what time the morning rush is now adays? used to be around 10AM if im not mistaken. If we get there for the morning rush and runway 8 is in use would anyone want to start off at terminal 2 parking garage? I still havent found to good of a spot for the south runways that will give you the sun to your back... any one know of a good place for south runway photographs?

I guess that Term 2 parking would give you a good view of the north runway?

Jeff... very much so do you get good views of the north runway! And as i mentioned before, if you go across the street that goes up to terminal 3 and 4 you get right up to the fence at an elevated position clear of the fence! I believe you would really enjoy it due to the proximity to the action!

For the southend we can try to see if we can get on the ramp at Cutter aviation, there must also be a parking lot by the south cargo area as well. One of the spotter pages lists spots to spot from, I think there is also an employee parking lot off of 24th street on the south end.

Alright good thinking desertjets... If you can get a clear idea as to where we can go for the south then it will make the day that much better! Also there is Buckeye road I beleive which you can get great arrival shots on 7R/L especially in the morning hours! Flying right over your head from this location! plus its a very slow road with rarely any traffic!
