MAN Spotters Beware...Again!

Wed Sep 11, 2002 6:16 am

Hi Guys,

Just thought I would update you with what special traffic is coming into MAN next week! I am pretty peeved at what is coming in as I got school so cannot go to see and get some pictures of the visitors, as I would think MAN hasnt had any of them in ALONG TIME! So here goes:

Tuesday 17th September 2002

Freebird MD-83 [FHY4418] (Football) CANCELLED
EL AL B-737.800 ETA 22.10; ETD 23.40 [ELY5065] (Football)
Israir B-757.200 ETA 14.10; ETD ? [ISR105] (Football)

Wednesday 18th September 2002

EL AL B-747.200 ETA 00.50; ETD ? [ELY3311] (Football)
EL AL B-737.800 ETA 12.00; ETD 19/9 @ 03.00 [ELY5061] (Football)

Seems like its Champions League traffic! Hope some of this info helps, and I think the Wednesday shoudl eb a VERY interesting day! I really wish I could go, but Collage is in the way  Sad.

Source of the info is the MAN Aviation Society, this can be found at: http://www.tasmanchester.com.

Yours Sincerely,

Funny, being from the US, I thought this was going to be a post about how you're getting harassed by the cops in the UK. Nice to see that it's actually a post about some interesting traffic coming into Manchester.

Going from here, the weather seems to be pretty good for next week and beyond! Allegedly 20C and sunny spells.

Pity I'm too tied up at work to go....methinks I'll contact MAN ATC to see if they can route everything over the city centre!

If ive learnt one thing over the past year it would be NEVER trust weather.co.uk! Its never right! just go and hope for the best, thats all I do now lol! When I went to London last it was forecast to be dull all the time, instead 95% of the time it was sunny and warm!

And as for June 1st till teh 2nd, it was forecast heavy rain in London, instead it was 30c! And I came home looking like I had been abroad for 2 weeks! Although MAN is quite unpredictable.

Yours SIncerely,

Looks as though the El Al B747 and the Freebird MD80s on Wed have now been cancelled.

Football charters can change right up until the day. Handling agents may not know what is coming until the day - suppose it makes it more interesting!

Oh yes, of course... I'll be there between 01:00 to 03:00 to photograph them all going out. Big grin Storming pictures they should make from the bank opposite 24R... [NOT!]  Nuts

Thanks for the info though... Weather permitting, I'll be there.
