If we're gonna have the meeting this weekend,then MEA321 will miss out,and if next week,BA will miss out.So Tuesday seems OK,you could join us after you finish your work,myself,BA&MEA321 should already be there if everything goes as planned.
Will keep you up to date.

I'm still waiting for a word from toBEYwithMEA,he has been doing the contacts with an MEA insider who will manage to get us into the MEA hangars and the airport grounds,with a permission to shoot as well.He tried calling her today but she was out,they told him to call her back on monday!
If we fail to get the clearance to enter the field,we can always spot right next to the departures entrance,I hope.

I need everyone coming to the meet to send me his/her detailed personal info(name,age,nationality) to make an accurate list.No news yet from our fellow member toBEYwithMEA about his contact with MEA,so the passes till now are not yet in our hands.
toBEYwithMEA & myself will be there prior to the schedule to try and work things out.We will meet at the terrace overlooking gate23,unless the security personnel ask us to move.Will keep you posted.

MEA310,

just discovered my A.net email address was not incorrect, so in case you sent me something, I couldn't check it.

I have also a friend who is in the airline business who would be interested to come.

You send me all the details? and I answer with all the necessary info?

Gentelmen,
I have bad news. I have Finally got through to my contact a MEA, and we have a small problem.
In order for us to go on to airport ground we need to submit photo ID's. I knew that we need to give them the ID's, but I thought we could give them the ID before we went in. My contact tells me that we must submit them by today (Monday July 19 2004) Its is 10:45 am, time is running out before MEA offices close.

Does anyone have any bright Ideas?

P.S: If this works we might be able to go ON an MEA aircraft!
