Thanks for posting that LIA310. According to that article Caribbean Airlines will receive the first 76W on April 10th but if memory serves me well this date slipped to June, is that correct?

Thanks 817Dreamliiner. I wish I could be there. Regarding camera equipment, nowadays even the compact digital cameras have improved image quality so if the 787 passes by close to where you will be spotting the aircraft, you don't necessarily need a more capable camera and I know that one of the most famous spotting locations in MAN is quite close to the runway

Well what the camera im using is from my blackberry so thats what I meant, im looking at different spotting sites, I think the one your thinking about is the Runway Visitor Park. Im thinking there would be the best place to get some good shots

90% got off in GND, the Immigration was very polite and the green line at customs was a breeze although we had lots of luggage.

Will you be doing a TR we dont have enough Caribbean reports on the site

Difficult this trip but I will try as I am going to GEO via POS next week, then back to JFK.


[quote=time2lyme,reply=244]Can you have 4 letters? If so, then how about 9Y-ROTI

Now this had me laughing nonstop. It was hilarious.


Grenada is a beautiful island, been here a few times, but it is definitely a jewel in the Caribbean.

I retract my statement about the aircraft not being painted....

On a different note, I'm not sure if you saw this on another thread in the forum, but I swiped the link below. Looks impressive..

Good to hear. I heard the route provides for some respectable yields.
