Ryder Cup And PTK

Sun Aug 15, 2004 2:49 am

For all you Detroit area people....

Just read a newspaper article saying that the Ryder Cup could bring 1,500 aircraft to KPTK during the Ryder Cup event. It also stated that Virgin Atlantic will be flying in the European team to DTW on September, 13th. The paper stated that "Royalty" may visit the area as well. FYI the paper was today's Oakland Press.

By royalty, Prince Andrew will be 99% certain to be there as he is contending for top spot in the Royal Family freeloaders / waste of space league.

He will be p***ed off that he cannot get us taxpayers to pay for Concorde this time round.

Hurry up the revolution!

Sounds like a trip down to DTW on the 12th for some spotting. Virgin Atlantic and may be the Concorde. Will these 1500 aircraft to PTK be mostly private jets?

No chance of Concorde I'm afraid - where were you in October last year?  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Thanks Mhodgson, my mind was in twenty places and I don't know what I was thinking. One of those brain farts.
