Unfortunately I'll had to cancel the planned RJ100 Alps sightseeing flight due a lack of interest.
So far, I've got only 24 people confirmed and 11 which are interested on the flight.
Therefore I'll change the day tour.
The new plan is at July 29th, 2006. (AFTER THE FOOTBALL WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!)
Meet from 9.30am on till 10.30am, in front of the "Visitors Terrace" at Check-in 2.
Visit of the "Terraces B, + E" and a special bus tour to the touch down zone of RWY 14 and to the runway crossings of the RWY's 16/34 - 10/28.
(Until approx. 2.00pm)
After that, we'll have a lunch brake at "Terrace B", before we go at 3.30pm
again to the bus gate.
The other bus-tour will bring the group to the maintenance area of the airport where we will join an arranged tour offered by SR
-TECHNICS, one of the world leading aircraft maintenance companies. This tour will last for about 2,5 hours.
We'll see how engines, structure, cockpit instruments and components of aircrafts are overhauled.
If were lucky, we might see an test-run of an engine in the engine test facility.
And we will go inside an aircraft which is on that day undergoing B, C, or even D-checks. Possibly we might see an a/c of an airline which is only a costumer of SR
-TECHNICS and not flying regularly into ZRH
At the evening, we could go once more for dinner to the lovely RWY34 restaurant.
This time I'll be limited to 60 people.
Due a higher charge of SR
-TECHNICS, the price for the whole package is CHF 25,-- or € 16,--. (A bit cheaper as the planned tour with the flight)
This price can only be maintained when I get around 60 people in the group.
With less people the price might slightly increase.
I insert here the list of the already interested people.
ME Avn Fan
Please confirm as soon as possible. I'll have to tell SR
-TECHNICS the amount of people attending by May 1th.
Thanks a lot!
