Hey Captain.md-11
In the Virgin Atlantic A346 post you said this:

"I plan to see it tomorrow at EMA"

I take it you mean East Midlands Airport (EGNX) by that, if so, what time's it coming, cause i live just down the road from EMA, and i really dont want to miss this bird!!

Cheers,

Jeff.

Hey there!

The A346 is a VERY nice aircraft and it is VERY long. I got a nice view of it when it was at Newark in April.

It is worth leaving school for a while- it is absolutely bautiful.

Enjoy your spotting!

I would like to catch it if possible, it will probably be the A340-600's one and visit to EMA and as its my local, I would be stupid not to pop across.It looks a mighty fine plane!

Oh goody I'm flying from EMA on Friday @ 1350, I hope it's still there. Will make the trip up and down the M1 worthwhile!!

Maybe not it's only visit, as you may know, a lot of training goes on at EMA, and Virgin have been known to fly their A343 round the circuit there, lets hope they do it with the A346.

Unfortunately i can't go, no ones available to take me :'-(

Ah well, i'll probably catch it when i fly from Heathrow in August =) And i live on the EMA approach path, so i may catch a glimps if rwy 09's in use

Cheers,

Jeff.

I may just do that, i'll make that plan B, plan A is to ask my folks so much that they eventually give in and take me  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Thanks for the advice leezyjet!

Is it still coming with the strikes and everything? I really hope so!

I drove all the way down to Gatwick to take a photo, but the weather was poor! Tomorrow could be a very nice day, only 20 miles to drive, I have a new camera, basically it really has to arrive!!
