SEA Meeting On 8/15?

Sun Jul 29, 2001 2:10 am

Hi!

I was wondering if anyone would be interested in meeting up at Sea-Tac on August 15, perhaps sometime around noon? I'm planning on dropping someone off for an 11AM flight, and I thought I might spend a few hours spotting at the airport afterwards.

If I recall correctly, there hasn't been a Puget Sound-area airliners.net gathering as of yet. However, I realize that midday on a weekday might not be the best time to do it, so I won't be upset if I don't get any replies.

Hi ElPremier-

I'm from Chicago. I'm visting in Seattle for almost week. I'm leaving on 16th at 1:20PM United #938. Maybe, you can come earlier before my departure like one hour or one and half hour. I don't know where is the best spotting to watch the planes at Seattle. I have been at United terminal 5 years ago. Please let me know about this. I hope to seeing you soon.

Unfortunately, I already have other plans for the 16th, but I do appreciate your reply. Thanks.

As far as spotting places, I agree that the United terminal should be pretty good, and I was also thinking about the far end of Terminal C. But, to be honest, Seattle isn't the world's most exciting airport. Seeing Johnny Cash go by the window every ten seconds gets a little boring after a while.

Well at least I can log a near miss.  Big thumbs up

I'd really like to do a SEA gathering sometime.

I just caught that. Does that mean you are staying up in Seattle for an extended period of time?

It would be great to go and spot at SEATAC but I will be at work at that time. Perhaps spot the Asiana 777, American 777 and the United 777!! Also would be cool to go to the Boeing plant and take some pics from a vantage point that I am not aware of at that facility.

Airline collections on 13th? August or October? I checked the Airways magazine shows on October 13th in Seattle. Double check where and when?

Thanks,

I can check my schedule, and check loads and maybe a little side trip to SEA would be fun.

Well, I sure am glad I did a search for this thread...I figured this topic died out a long time ago! Sorry about the delayed response, but I've been on vacation and this is my first time online in about 10 days.

Anyway, Aug 15 would still work, if anyone is interested. I have regular internet access at this point, but I still need to know pretty soon if anyone is going to come.

I leave Seattle on the evening of the 19th, so I suppose that could also work. However, the 15th around midday is the best time.

OK...I'm going to bump this up to the top one more time.

So far, I have nobody confirmed for tomorrow. Too bad there are going to be so many "near-misses." I will check this thread again this evening and see if anything has changed. Otherwise, consider the meeting tomorrow officially cancelled.

Just in case there is a sudden swell in interest, I was thinking of meeting around 11:30 AM at gate C11 (and obviously, we can move on from there). It may be wishful thinking, but I was hoping some people could come out on their lunch breaks. But then again, the cuisine at SEA is nothing to get excited about.

Also, does anyone have comments on the evening of Sunday the 19th (say 3:30-5:30 PM). This is less convenient for me, but if it would work better for other people, I might consider it.

I'll have to check if tomorrow is one of those days where members of upper-management are asked to sample the in-flight meals. If so, then I'm sure I'll be able to squeeze in a trip over to the airport around noontime so I can watch all those pretty planes go by.  Big grin
