Out of the three given the only one I'd be able to attend is Sat. 14th as I'll be in Mexico City.

PZ: Who's camera was the one we took the picture with the last meeting?
Anyone heard anything about Aeromexico757? Is he still in Celaya or already in San Antonio?

Hmmm...let's see... I may have a couple of trips coming up in February, but I think (even though I'm not sure yet) that the most likely for me would be the 21st. But you can go ahead and decide among yourselves.

BTW, does anyone know when the current Aeromar terminal is going to be torn down to replace it with the new terminal (if it's ever really going to happen)?

>Anyone heard anything about Aeromexico757<

He should be in San Antonio by now. He's been awfully quiet lately, though...Don't they have computers at flight school in San Antonio? Big grin

Regarding "The Great Avioncitos Meeting Photo Mistery", PZurita1 is the one who took it. (Pedro, if you need a place to hang the photo, just send it to me and I'll do it).

A little off-topic, but I did not want to open a new thread:
Reports say a Varig MD-11 suffered a tailstrike in MEX,
Can any of our fellow Mexican A.Netters confirm?
Thanks

Hi, this is on another thread too.
The word is that PP-VTF had a tailstrike during a go-around, and some repair is needed.
In the past day or so another MD-11 ran off the rwy at Natal, however its back in service.

Hi all:
I'm new posting messages, but not new for a.net nor for reading your posts... I wish I could join you on this avioncitos meeting, but I'll be out of town this weekend... Sadly...
I hope to be here for the next one...
Have a great time on Saturday...

Hope you guys have a good time. I'm stuck with a maintenance problem in Merida and MUST wait until the damn thing gets fixed.

Hope to see you soon and have some chilaquiles on my behalf.

Damn!! Cant make it again!!. My friend Gabriel decided to get married tomorrow, well, actually the judge could not do it any other day but tomorrow, and I'm a witness. The wedding is at 12 PM (weird hour for a civil wedding isn't it?) and obviously I can't be late.

February 28 would be the best date for me, but it seems I'm too late to vote.

Have a blast.

Unfortunately, something unexpected came up at work (well, actually, it was rather expected) and I won't be able to make it this time.

Have a great time, everyone.

somebody from Mexico sent me an e-mail asking how to get a flag next to the username. If that "somebody" who identified himself as "marcus" is in this thread, let it be known that your e-mail is wrong. I replied several times to your mail, and received an e-mail from the system administrator with the subject "undeliverable". Better check that.

Anyways, the flag came out of no where in my username like around last wendsday, I guess it happens when you have over 60 posts, don't know for sure. Perhaps people with more seniority here might know why.

For all newcomers:

The meeting is this saturday, february 14th, at 10:00 AM, at the Wings restaurant inside Aeromar's terminal (Terminal 2). Driving northbound to the airport, you make a right on Hangares Ave. and then, after you pass the runways on the left, make a left turn at the traffic light where the gas station is.

Or, you can purchase an Aeromar ticket to, say Lazaro Cárdenas, check-in at the main terminal, go through security, get on the bus that will take you to your ATR then, once you get off the bus, instead of climbing aboard the airplane, run to the big window there, press your face against it, knock the title song to "El Chavo" (the Beethoven one, which, BTW, happens to be the secret avioncitos brotherhood admission code), and your fellow avioncitos brothers will be thrilled to invite you inside and PZurita1 will gladly buy you breakfast (it's a tradition for first timers). Smile/happy/getting dizzy

As far as I know it was one of the least attended meetings ever.....

Maybe we should call for AVIONCITOS MEETING 8.5. We should do it as soon as possible; who knows, maybe someone from CINTRA will join us and hear what we have to say before they keep planning what we all think they will do next...  Big grin

Speaking of my self, I will be available in Mexico City from Fri 5th until the 10/12th....
