Spotting At SAN On 7/29-JOIN US!

Sun Jul 27, 2003 9:26 am

Hey guys,
Same routine as last summer. Nicksair and myself will be spotting at SAN this coming Tuesday, and would like to invite our fellow a.net members to come down and get in on the action! If you have some free time during the day, come on down. Nicksair and I should arrive at the airport at about 8 AM, and I suspect we'll be there until about 4PM. So come on down!

Bryan,

Sorry I won't be in town to meet you guys. Please try to get a good shot of the CO 757 which departs around 9:30AM and post it somewhere... Email me if you'd like the short list of local spotters who came to the spotter meet I organized earlier this month at SAN when I was in town.

Lindy,
Will do! That CO 752 heads out to EWR correct? I have a shot of that flight departing last year around Christmas time.

Anyone else interested in coming down?

The 9:30AM CO flight goes to IAH... I'll try and make it, (abiet probably not so early), but can anyone give more specific directions?

I just got back from Australia today, so I'll be there on the 29th!

Sean: From SDSU, I'd recommend taking the 8 to the 5, exiting Sassafrass/Kettner/SD Airport, then taking a left on Laurel Street (turns into Harbor Drive). On the righthand side there are several parking lots; the one we'll be at is a public lot with a large open driveway.

Hey guys! The day turned out to be great. Tony Z. dropped by on his lunch break to say hello. Good to see you again, Tony. ON the more interesting side of things, there was an RAF L1011 at the airport this morning which departed about 10:30AM. As for Av8er---Nick and I decided to stroll up Laurel Street to the gas station to get some water and HP 196 flew right over our heads (757-200?? Correct? heheh). Lindy--I have your shot of the 9:30AM CO 752, and some wonderful shots of B6. B6 served us with 523JB today. All of my pics will be uploaded to another aviation photography site once I get home on August 12th, so I'll give you guys a shout when they are ready.

Have a good one!
