I intend to be there. Alas, I can't make it onto 1949 but I will meet it at the gate in ATL with a bottle of champagne.

I can also offer a couch for anyone who may have to stay overnight in ATL. DeltaSFO can vouch for how comfy they are (since he always seems to fall asleep on them!).

I will be in both ATL and MCO on that day.

ATL-MCO DL 442 31 Jul 2001 6:30 AM-7:47 AM

MCO-ATL DL 1949 31 Jul 2001

If you could arrange a seat assignment roster for 1949 privately via email, that'd be intersting!  Smile

My friend who is a co-pilot flying the Citation 550 is flying to DCA from SAV on July 31st and I'm gonna meet him. Maybe they'll give me a ride to ATL for the gathering, hehe  Big grin I wish. If you now come to DCA, I can probably get him for a tour in the Citation 550  Smile hehe

I am really looking forward to going. Does anyone know if 1949 will get the water cannon? Where is a good place to be to photograph that?

You guys will have to show me some good spots to take pictures when you get here. So far, the best I can do is the AirTran concourse and the upper level parking deck.

It's going to be great! I can't wait!

I believe that 1949 will be given a water cannon salute on the tarmac out between E17 and TOC and then taxied in to that gate. The best photography can be had from right there.

Thanks to A330300, who e-mailed me about the availability of a window seat on DL 1949, I called Delta and snatched it up. I'm now in seat 41J, in case anyone is making a roster of our seat assignments.

Does anyone have any idea on how to recognize each other on board 1949 or at ATL, besides looking for people contorted to odd angles and making erratic movements for the best pictures?  Laugh out loud

Alright a few things to rememebr if you're coming to ATL to watch the bird come in...

The aircraft will land on the south side of the airport, runway 27L/9R depending on wind. If it is going east (9R) you can hit it from the parking deck. If they are going west I don't know of any good spots, but I'm going to look one day this week or next week. I think I know where one is.
Right now, the plane is scheduled to arrive at gat A01 in Atlanta, this gate, I don't think, has a window. Which might make quite a few people mad  Laugh out loud I'll check on that when I go down in a few days.
I'm not sure where the water cannon salute will be, some one mentioned down by E concourse...which is probably correct because the other concourses lack room for something like that.
I'll be possibly on the ramp for its arrival in the gate...if not there, I'll be getting on board after it comes on, if those of you flying on 1949 could do me a favor and REMAIN ON BOARD the plane. You'll find eachother easily that way, and then when I get on you will know me, I'll be the odd one who gets on without a badge...but then again Justin knows who I am so he can yell at me.
After I shoot on board some, I'll be heading off the plane to cry. Once I have gathered myself I will be heading off with a small group to do some shooting.
Those of you that are staying for the day and want to contact me for spots, feel free to email me, if you would like my cell phone number I can give that as well if you'd like to call me that day to ask any questions.

Well traveling from Newark I was able to get a 1
$190.00 fare Without a Saturday night Stay if Since I was taking the L-10-11 flight. Maybe the agent was full of it but she said that it was rather odd a fare like that was avaible without a saturday night stay.

Any way I couldent get a window seat but oh well Maybe one of you folks wouldent mind taking a couple of shots for me with my video camera.

Dasheighty - Are you sure she priced it for flight 1949 and not flight 1444 which is also an L1011. Reason being that flight 1949 is zeroed out in all buckets below M, while 1444 had availability in U, which is the fare class for the $184+tax fare (UR0TN)

For those of you that think I am A total Freak This Confirms it;

There was still first class availible on 1949 I took it. You have to be pretty fond of an aircraft to do that. Or just plain nuts.

Or should I say "Plane" Nuts
