He can give you advice!

Terry Wade lives in England, I met up with him in TPA the same week. He was on holiday in Florida and that was one of the many places he visited. He might be able to tell you somethin but not too much, I'm guessing. Who knows?

here you go Jimmi: http://www.srq-airport.com

And what sort of times do the flights take off and land.

go to http://www.srq-airport.com/tracking.htm and download the flight schedule files. Although February's are not published yet, January's might give you an orientation. Plenty of general aviation operations go on there also (298 aircrafts based there - 17 of them are bizjets).

Average ops/day for SRQ is 372.

Have fun!

OK,

that sounds like very late February. around 25-28 or so. I'll try to put the schedules together for you. Looks like the Terry Wade photographs are from the observation area next to the commuter terminal. Aircraft departing runway 14, the NW jet just coming off that runway. Luckily, you are coming at the peak season. Saturdays are best, Canadian stuff comes in on Saturdays.

I myself have never been bothered.

The second week, I AM hopeing to come along, One Morning or something, Not for a whole day, Just for A little while, As you hopefully can understand, A Family Holiday, 2 Family's together, Say's It all, LOL

So anyways, Should be there one morning, I most likely won't have computer acess over there, So won't be contactable from A.net or E-MAIL.


If I get computer Interent over there, For some reason, I will try to post on here, from there, To tell you what day I will be at the Airport, If, I go.
