After a little while, he came out of the van, and headed down where we had been, giving us a wide berth. Eventually he headed back to the van and left, but never came close to us.

    Are you sure it was Conor? I've spoken to hi online and he is often very friendly. He's a member here as well.

    Either way, I really regret not having gone there that morning. I stayed in the hotel room spotting, and though I loved the views that I got, I also received a lot of haze from the heat of the terminal and the APUs of aircraft in the alley.

    So my shots came out like **** and I missed out on some USAF and Pan Am action.

    bwahahahahahahaha!

    ....yes, we all know where Phil's priorities are. :P


    On the other hand, after this weekend of being saturated full of plane nerdiness, ask me how many planes I can identify. My repertoire goes beyond Dash-8's now.

    Well while everyone was out spotting on the 22nd I was on my way to Texas but I was able to catch Slam Dunk One at ISP. I was pretty pumped to see her there. Interestingly enough two hours later when we were pushing back for MDW she landed again.
