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!!

That's supposed to read 'one and only' trip to EMA!

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.

747forever,

Get a taxi or ride there on a bike, where there's a will, there's a way !!! Big grin

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!!
