November (first Two Weeks Of) PHX Meet

Mon Oct 08, 2007 7:39 pm

Come one, come all!!!

Let's finally get a PHX meet going. Within the first two weeks of November, especially since Thanksgiving is in the latter part.

A central location (say the HRC (Hard Rock Cafe, downtown)), after work (obviously).

I know AirframeAS will be an attendee, as I will be.

 wave  Yes, I will be!

So how about it guys?! Lets do this. The temps here in PHX is no longer in the 100's and its very, very comfortable down here. Lets meet up at the Hard Rock Cafe that is across from Chase Field/US Airways Center like EWRCabinCrew suggested. This has been suggested before back in July/August.

So, those of you PHX A.netters.....dont be a sissy! Its not that hot anymore.

Suggestions for a date? Early November sounds good, maybe the first weekend or second weekend? Thanksgiving weekend isn't doable for me because Im in DEN and flying on F9 for the first time.

So.......lets do it!  Smile

Ok, wait for the RJ to pass, cleared to push tail south Mike, and you're cleared to spin #2 in the push.

I might be able to show up! I was at PHX a few weekends ago, and met one of the local spotters. The spots are great since you get an overlook of the whole airport and runways. Keep me posted!

HRC should be the place. Its so easy to find.

Lets not cancel this one, I'm moving to DEN in January and I want to meet as many PHX A.netters as much as possible.

So....

November 10, 2007 at Hard Rock Cafe, PHX at 5:30-6pm until whenever....

I'm gonna be there anyway.

I would actually love to drive down (short drive from PRC) but unfortunately the 10th is Nellis Airshow, and I am committed to going there! However, you guys should make it an all day thing if its gonna be on a weekend, spot during the day, and do dinner in the evening!! Sorry, but if you guys do it next time, I might be able to join in!!!

Hey guys...

I'm back living in Arizona after a few years on the East Coast. I'd love to get together and meet some local PHX a.netters. Count me in for November 10 at the HRC.

Someone also suggested making an all-day thing out of it, with some spotting during the day at PHX. I'd totally be up for that, as November is a great time of year to shoot at PHX, and its always nice to have company!

BTW, I think I'm the local spotter that Je89_w says he met up with at PHX a few weeks ago. It was great to meet you.

Quoting CBPhoto (Reply 19):

 checkmark  Agreed! Thats why EWRCC and I are trying to organize this. PHX meets are very difficult to do, I think it has alot to do with the small A.net population and/or the summer heat, which is gone now.

We will be a big international airshow that day of the PHX meet!  rotfl

I can do that, especially if we make it an all day event! I have a concert to be, I believe around 7 that day, and then the next day I fly out to MSP! What about everyone else?

Okay! After conferring with EWRCC, we have decided to try the 17th of November. The reason for the change is because it seems like more people are available that night of the 17th rather than the 10th. And it gives more planning time (1 week extra) for some of you who do not live in the valley. Meet time is the same: 5:30pm to whenever.

So are we all in agreement that the 17th would be more of a doable date at the Hard Rock Cafe in Phoenix? If you need directions on how to get to HRC and parking info, it can be found here: http://www.hardrock.com/locations/ca...ocationID=34&MenuID=15&MIBEnumID=3

It also shows you what the resturaunt itself looks like on the outside.

So are we all in agreement? (This will be the final change if we are all in agreement!)

I think the original plan was to meet up at HRC at 5:30pm. But if you guys want to make it an all day event, go for it. But I won't be able to do all day. I will definately be at the HRC meet-up.

Lets play it by ear that morning as to where we meet up. For me, it really depends on whether traffic is departing to the east or the west. Chances are, though, that I'll start at either the T2 garage or at the 40th street spot (on the south side of the airport). Both of those are terrific locations in the winter.

For anyone who wants to meet up during the day on the 17th for spotting, send me an e-mail beforehand and I'll give you my cell number.

I lived in PHX for 6 years before moving to Maryland.

That was THE BEST place for spotting. I absolutely miss it. My wife and I go to AZ everyear and do spend a good hour spotting at our favorite spot. I miss spotting the two scheduled heavies at the time..BA flight from London and Lufthansa from Frankfurt.

I tried to start a NEW thread on this, but the forum wouldn't me, it gave me a white screen when I hit 'Preview the post'...so here is what I was going to write....


Greetings, A.netters!

Last month, EWRCabinCrew and I decided to organize an A.net meet here in PHX. This meet will occur in a week from tomorrow (Saturday), at the Hard Rock Cafe in downtown PHX at 5:30pm until whenever.

So far, we have these A.netters and their guests (if any) that are available to attend and is confirmed, unless noted:

EWRCC
AirframeAS
CBPhoto
Monorial
Jakbar
RedFlyer
Itsnotfinals
Jamesjimlb (A huge maybe, but it would be nice if you still can come.)
EA CO AS (with his wife, a possibility.)
ASUFlyer05 (A huge possibility)

For those of you who do not know where HRC is, you can find directions here, directly from their website:

http://www.hardrock.com/locations/ca...ocationID=34&MenuID=15&MIBEnumID=3

In short, it is right across from Chase Field.

Some of the members were thinking of doing an all day meet at PHX T4. You are more than welcome to do so, I for one, will not be able to do that. Also, I encourage A.netters to bring guests if they wish.

Hope to see more folks there to join us!  wave

UPDATE:

As of 8AM this morning (MST), EWRCabinCrew cannot make the PHX meet tonight. EWRCC is currently in Bombay (or was, the last I spoke with him...) and won't return until the 19th. As for me, I have been requested to come into work early since I am leaving for DEN on the 19th for two weeks, and won't be back into PHX until Dec 01. Both, EWRCC and myself apologize for this sudden change.

So its up to you guys to have a meet at HRC or at PHX for spotting. Please understand, last minute things happen as with airlines cancelling flights or delaying flights.

At least have some fun!

I hope everyone had a good time at the HRC tonight. I apologize I wasn't able to make it. I was out spotting in the morning and early afternoon, but I started to feel sick and went home. I hope I get a chance to meet all of you next time. I'll be out spotting on the weekends a lot this winter, so drop me a line if you'll be out and want to meet up.

Apologies for not making it to PHX as well, as I got caught up with a bunch of things to do today. By any chance, did any of you guys that did make it see anything unusual? Found this thread: Issue At PHX? (by Arcrftlvr Nov 16 2007 in Civil Aviation)

I'll be out spotting on the weekends a lot this winter, so drop me a line if you'll be out and want to meet up.

Would love to get down to PHX again, especially with the great winter light. Gotta catch more of those US special A319s, WN's special B737s, and hope for that Honeywell B720 to move! Did the last special livery HP B752 (Arizona colors) get repainted?

Yes, I saw it today at PHX in new US Airways colors. A sad sight, indeed.

I did catch Cardinals departing in the morning, and the new Arizona arriving in the afternoon. I was not at the right spot for the Steelers plane arriving, and I left before it departed.

Thanks for the info. I will miss seeing those colorful birds at HNL; shame that I blew my chances of capturing most of them on camera! The A319s at PHX will do I guess . . . at least it's better than nothing.
