CLT Slide Show! August 20th

Thu Jul 29, 2004 12:20 pm

Dear friends,
Our good buddy Mario Aurich will be in town on Friday August 20th. We're planning to get together at my home in South Charlotte for dinner (order in pizza or whatever) beer (or hard liquor- up to you) and a slide show in the backyard (if rains, bring it inside). If any of you are in town that day or live in the area, email me if you are interested in joining us. No worries about running out of slides to show, my collection currently tops 125,000 slides  Nuts

Anyone got a floor I can crash on? What about some shooting @ CLT on Saturday?

why shoot US 762s when you have a fine collection of Dash 8s to choose from?  Wink/being sarcastic i want to get some of those PSA CRJ-700s though.....and the LH A340 came in on the wrong side too....

Joe, i'm game.....i was just there for the dave matthews concert this past saturday (awesome show, by the way) but i'd make the trip down there for the day or spend one night or something...

I have a woodrow for US Air 757's and 767's. Don't know why, maybe they remind me of the man in black.

Seriously, US 757s are big favs of mine. I saw them twice at LGA from 2 miles away partially blocked byt he termianl, and one in Mojave all wrapped up like a baked potato.

I get enough Dash-8s at LGA.

Sorry for the hijacking. Just trying to hype up CLT  Big grin

CLT's cool without a doubt....love the place

just a heads up for ya'll in CLT too....talked to the guys at the museum over there at CLT and they said that Fifi the B-29 is coming in aug 23rd and staying for about a week...if any of you all care....nothing like the sound of those radials and the smoke that thing puts out puts cheech and chong to shame

I got to see Fifi a few weeks back at FRG. I highly recommend it. There is nothing like hearing that plane comin in.

Any of you boys who wants to come can stay over- we have one guestroom with a futon. In the family room the couch opens up in to a full sized bed- then there's the floor but I can get an air mattress temporarily. The people that come from the furthest away will have 1st pick on the best sleeping facilities. I'll even pick your ass up at the airport (i'm 20 min away) if you arrive in the evening on friday (that's when i'm picking up Mario). Shooting CLT on Saturday is fine with me.

Uh Scotty, I think you misinterpreted Joe's comment. I think he actually lives in a house that he nicknames "Pries Inn"  Big thumbs up

Joe,
looks like there's a chance that i'll be down there friday morning (flying down in a 172), spend the day shooting at CLT and then to your place for the show and then we'll head back out sometime on saturday.....would love to stay longer down there and shoot with you guys but i'm leaving for college (jax) again on sunday the 22nd. i'll be able to make it down for the show though....long as the weather's decent i'll come down...

any of the local guys going to come to the show?

JP,

would love to come over, but on Aug 20th I will be hanging out at the pool in DXB and probably meet up with K-man.
I will do that CLT thing next year.
Funny enough I will also meet Mario, a couple of days later.....small world, isn't it.

Maybe we can meet up in LAX in Dec.

So, it comes down to pizza @ Joes or a trip to ANC to shoot the Magadan TU154.

What would you do?

I'd love to come down, but unfortunately, I will be moving into my new digs up I-85, settling into the Greensboro area. If it was a month later, I'd be there, but I'm sure I'll have plenty of unpacking (and spotting at GSO) to do.

Royal- I saw Magadan TU154 in SEA back in 97, that's old news man!  Big grin

Jonathan, sounds good buddy..

Vasco, DXB sounds awesome with the K man who I still have a small package here to send to him (i'm such a procrastinator some times)

Jeff- there's always next time- i'm not just a one time slide show kinda guy  Big grin

I have tried getting a picture of the LH A340 myself but it has eluded me twice! Wish LH pilots would choose 18R/36L more often! Jonathan, I saw the CRJ-700 the last time I was at CLT (sometime in May). It was my first time seeing that particular type in person and it looks sharp!
