A.net Meeting @ HAM For Airport Classics/Part II

Sat Aug 30, 2003 2:12 am

Hi everyone

A while ago, Paulianer came up with the excellent idea of organizing a meeting during the Airport Classics-Event at HAM, held on sept. 13th/14th 2003... Quite a few of us are already taking part in this meeting. Here is the list of who's coming:

- Tobi/Paulianer (local)
- Michael/IwantaBBJ (flying in from BSL)
- Jumbolino (maybe)
- Frank/FUAirliner (local)
- Rich/ViveAE (flying in from MAN)
- Andy/Skymonster (flying in from BHX)

Some info about the event can be found here:

http://www.ham.airport.de/en/pressemitteilungen_2577.htm

Everyone is more than welcome to join us at this event, which promises to be an excellent day at HAM, with plenty of planes and fun. Why not come along and meet some of the faces behind these posts  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Just add yourself to the list...

Michael

Yup, all still on as far as I'm concerned, and looking forward to it. I'm off to the USA for a week on Wednesday 3rd, back in the UK Wednesday 10th, and then it'll be just two days until Hamburg! The BA flight from BHX lands at HAM 09:40 Saturday, and I think the return is something like 20:00 Sunday. I've booked a room at the Ibis at the airport.

Hi Andy

Well Andy, then we can have a few beers at the bar of the Hotel, as I'm also staying in the Ibis *hicks*

Hello Guys,

meanwhile it's very maybe, that I can come - refer to the thread, if your spouse/husband doesn't like aviation like you do and it's a longer weekend for him, so he likes to come to INN spend the long weekend with me, but not with planes  Sad

Ciao, Jumbolino.
Kind Regards, Jutta.

You're coming to INN that weekend?!?  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Do you shoot some planes at SAT?

Would be nice to meet an A.net face...

regards, Florian

Looking forward to the weekend, not long to go now...

I`ve got in at the Airport Hamburg Hotel for the night, so a few post-show beers at the IBIS sounds like a perfect end to the day.

My LH flight should land in from MAN at 1050hrs on Saturday so maybe we could work out the best place to meet up... maybe some swapping of mobile phone numbers via e-mail perhaps ?

Cheers all

Rich

Yes that is a good idea... When do yo all arrive, so I try to meet you all at Terminal 4 arrival...

Another question... Should I buy some tickets for you??? They are bit cheaper when I buy it now for you... You can send me the money via paypal...

Just checked the weather forecast for HAM next weekend, and it actually doensn't look too bad... Hope the forecasts are not changing....


@Paulianer: I'll be arriving on flight LX856 at 0830LT that morning.... As for the others: ViveAF wrote that he's flying Ryanair to LBC and then he'll take the bus, Skymonster will come in at 0940... How are we going to meet? As we are all coming in on different times, it might be an idea to meet at a specific point (ie. the 707) at about 1030 to 1100. I'll be recognizable by my old BA-T'Shirt with a big Concorde on the back... Looks rather washed-out but it would help to identify me. It might also be helpful to exchange mobilephone-numbers of those that have one... Just in case....

What do you guys think?

Michael Steffen

BTW: Thomas_Jaeger mentioned something to me that he might come also.... Would be nice to have him there too!!!

And edit: Swiss says on it's webpage that my flight would be on an ERJ-145.. I thought that they use Saabs to HAM... Or maybe the Saturday-morning flight is operated by an ERJ-145 as an exception?

I haven't seen a Swiss Saab 2000 at Hamburg (HAM) for a long time ...

Unfortunately, on Saturday I can't make it to the Hamburg Airport Classics before 13:00 o'clock.

Let's pray that the weather forecast is right. A lot of sun is expected for next weekend ...

Thanks, FUAirliner, I must be wrong then.... My flight back on monday morning is on a Saab, according to Swiss BTW

Sun would be great, especially for taking pics, and it shouldn't snow when I want to wear that T-Shirt for identification LOL

@ IwantaBBJ
I'll pick you up at the Terminal 4 arrvial area, we can also pick up Andy (because the show opens at 10 a.m.)...

I'll send you my mobile no. via airliners.net so we can find each other just for the case...  Wink/being sarcastic

I think the Boeing 707 is a good point to meet, if someone gets lost or so... But what time?

Pray for good weather...

slight change....

I decided against the Ryanair via Lubeck and got myself on an LH MAN/HAM - LH5963 - which is due into HAM at 1050hrs so hopefully I`ll be there pretty much the same time as everyone else

Also got a night stop at the Airport Hamburg Hotel for Saturday so that`ll be handy for a few beers with the rest of the crowd at the IBIS or wherever ....

Tobi, I`ll email my mobile phone number to you later today

Cheers all

Rich

OK all, see ya tomorrow...

Weather forecast is (Still) good for tomorrow, AFAIK  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

What about you, any chance that you'll join us tomorrow or even on sunday?

Greetings
Tobi

P.S.: Most of the stuff already arrived at HAM today... Some great planes... You'll be not dissapointed (or I hope so at least)  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I absolutely have to agree with that... It's was a fantastic weekend. I really enjoyed Andy, Rich and your company... The weather was great, the aircraft and the beer  Big grin

And I also have to say: Most importantly, I made some good new friends!!!

Hi Tobi, Mike & Andy - it was a great weekend, excellent show, of course the weather was extremely kind, and you were all great company  Big thumbs up

I`m sure there will be some great shots of the event, can`t wait to see them posted.

Now that I have learned about Mike`s penchant for stroking 707`s  Wink/being sarcastic I will have to email John Travolta and see if he`s willing to let you try it on his flying version !  Wink/being sarcastic

Thanks to Tobi for getting it all together... here`s to the next event (wherever) - and here`s a shot of the CRJ which flew me from MAN to HAM - "Little Europe" - and no prizes for guessing who took the photo  Big thumbs up
