PDX Area A.netters: How About A Meet?

Sat Dec 24, 2005 5:10 am

The thread title says it all. KPDX and I were talking about it, and how about we set up a PDX meet for the near future??

Of course anyone that wants to come in from around the NW is more than welcome. Let me know!

I think it'd be good to try for January some time? Maybe February?

I've been thinking about this for a while now, it would be nice to meet up at PDX.

I'm sort of new around here, only been in Portland 6 months, what day are we likely to catch some of the 747Fs, and the Lufty etc?

Maybe February would be better than January? who knows, I'm in though.

I was thinking of something like spotting, then goin somewhere to get some food for a while before calling it a day. The Shilo perhaps down Airport Way?

Ok, I am not available the last two weeks of January. I'll be in LA the week of the 21st-28th.

It would need to be mid-January, or early February. Either is fine with me. I think we could get together at PDX around the time NW and LH will have they're heavies at PDX. I dunno what the bussy times of the day are at PDX. Either way, when we're done, maybe some food and drinks at a local place?

EDIT:

Also, if we're gonna do a meet, it should probably be on a weekend. KPDX is still in school Wink So we should plan on a Saturday possibly.

Quoting S12PPL (Reply 12):

HA and NW come in early morning around 7 or 8am, and then LH comes in around 1 or 2pm. NW leaves around the same time LH comes in, and then LH departs around 4-5pm.

6-9am I think would be the busiest time, with some NW, DL, and UA flights heading east around that time.

Sounds like fun...I wish I could make it, but can't.

Morning is nice because all the cargo heavies are taking off - FedEx DC-10/MD-11, A300, UPS 767, and the occasional Atlas, Korean or Air China 747.

Then about 8:50-9:10 am the F-15s take off, usually from six to eight of them, followed a few minutes later by a tanker or three.

Yep I remember last time I was there, at 8:56 AM 8 F-15's took off, very awesome, and not to forget, loud sight!  

And about the time, in the morning would be great!  
And uhh, yea preferably on a weekday!

I'm up for a showing of the morning heavies and fighters. But I'm afraid I'll get greedy and want to go out and watch the 12:45 launch, so if we're eating burgers and suds and suddenly someone states, "What happened to that Geedo dude?".......that's just how it is.  spin

I cannot do Saturday the 22nd, or Sunday the 23rd. I'll be in LA those days.

The 29th and 30th would be bad for me, as i would have to drive back up to PDX after flying in the day before. I'm for anything in February, on a Saturday afternoon, or Sunday all day.

I coach a 5th grade boys basketball team, and our games will be on Saturdays, likely in the mornings.

Depending on the day, I will try to make it down here.
I have vacation at the end of January/beginning of February, but
it will depend on daycare.
Once the date is settled, I will try to work it out.

Wow, 12 people all ready?? Cool!

Well I'm going to suggest we do this in early February, then. It seems everyone could work they're schedule around that. My only problem with February will be Saturdays. Either we could do it in the afternoon, or I'll join you all up there when my commitment to my basketball team is done. I'm certain we'll be playing in the mornings on Saturdays, with some weekday games late in the season.

It's either that, or we shoot for mid-January, and I'm free all day Saturdays or Sundays.

I'd love to join in too if you got room for one more! Sadly the only weekend I have open is the fist one in Feb so unless it's on that date, I cant come (but please do not base your decision based solely upon my availability!)

I hope it works out and I look forward to meeting y'all.
