All You UND Guys/girls

Sat Oct 04, 2003 11:33 am

Hey, over the past couple weeks I've been noticing that there are a lot of fellow University of North Dakota students here on a.net. I was thinking that we should all get together sometime over at Wilky, Terrace, or even better out at the airport cafe. I love it here at UND so far, and even though some of us prob know eachother already without the usernames, it would be awsome if we all met up somewhere. Leave contact info, or we could just set something up here. My aol sn is RayBolt999 if anyone wants to chat. Talk to you soon, hopefully. Go Sioux!

Airport cafe sounds good. Too bad that we don't really have anything to plane spot (except lots and lots of UND aircraft,  Laugh out loud). We can always try and coordinate our big meeting with the most exciting arrival of the day...a NWA DC-9 or FedEx B727.

Haha. Too funny! It is actually sad that is all we get here. When FedEx starts bringing 757s to replace their 727s it will be a little more interesting. Maybe an A32x for NW will make it here one day. This makes you not take home airports for granted. (MSPBig grin

Where are the rest of you Sioux by the way???

Sounds good. Pilota2c@yahoo.com is my e-mail. Pick a date and time and I'll be there. --- it will be a sad day when the 727 is no longer at GFK  Smile even if they do replace it with a 57. I love to watch that smoky thing come in for landing.- Brady

I think the last time GFK saw a B757 was during the flood of '97. Seems like FAR steals all of our exciting diversions.

Hey... sorry.. I haven't checked the forums in a few days.

Yeah, I would certainly be up to an a.net meeting somewhere. Heck... we could probably, just for the s*it of it, start an official Aerospace club, like "Airliners.net members" or something. That would be hella cool. Lemme know. My AIM is the same as here.

Just so you guys know, wings cafe isn't open then. There's plenty of pics form GFK on jetphotos.net *looks to see if anyone heard him say that* mostly by me. I know a few people that I've met from UND and A.net. Not comin out to wings though. I'm too fuckin lazy, and I'm not retarded.

Ex UND student here,
I would love to meet with you guys, but I moved to CMSU. Cool place to fly too... Much warmer! I hated that cold and especially wind. One day woke up and there was a 3/4 inch ice on the inside of my window (heater full open all night!). FUBAR.
Did you guys know that once 747 landed in GFK? UA NRT-ORD emergency landing due too sick pax if I remember corectly.

Can anyone tell me if N155ND is still there? My favorite plane. I requested it for every stage check. Saved my ass couple of times...

My second solo:

- "Sioux 155, GFK Tower, would you like the big runway?"
- "Big one is fine, Sioux 155"
- "Sioux 155, enter right base for rwy 35L, clear to land, number 1 for landing"
- "Sioux 155"
-...
A minute later:
- "Sioux 155, emediate turn left! traffic twelve o'clock 200 feet"
After landing:
- "Sioux 155, thanks for keeping it cool. I screwed up. Nice landing BTW"

My instructor raised hell after that Smile

Wonderful memories from UND. Anyway, Good luck to all Sioux Flyers.

Normal,

I can't say too much about UND because I just started up here this semester but so far so good. It's a great program up here and one of the best in the nation (as is Purdue). The part I enjoy the most about UND is that we have great instructors and staff plus great facilities. UND Aerospace staff are top of the line and have lots of experience in the industry.

As for the facilities, we have an $83 million campus with four buildings. This includes FTDs (one CRJ FTD), an altitude chamber (possibly the most important facility here), and a multi-million dollar atmospherium (thanks to some help from the Arthur P. Anderson fund).

We'll make the timing clearer next time, first time is always the hardest. Next time we'll get some better planning too, maybe catch the FedEx B727 at the cargo ramp.

It was great to see the XJ ARJ come in especially with the news of NWA possibly discontinuing the aircraft soon.

That's really cool reading about all you folks up there in GFK! I live down here in LIT but my mother's family lives in Thompson and Northwood! I used to live in GFAFB and I miss it a lot. My wife and I are finally coming back up there at the end of the month to visit. Hey, another thing, is the "smiley face" water tower still downtown there or did they finally paint over it? I think my grandparents said it got painted over. Not sure though.
Cheers,

Hey Aviatortj,

That"s good about the tower. I grew up seeing that smiley face and it would be sad if they painted over it. Kinda a historic symbol for the city of GF.. ya know?
