    LOL, yes Kaz, indeed. But I may not have ANY of these days


    Great day spotting with Eric, Mark and Conrad at the end. Nice meeting John and Pedro (from Mexico APM Spotters Group)







    I have a ton of stuff to do so I 'll leave the rest to the boys

    Mark you have an amazing capacity for lucky things like that to happen to you. I am surprised you even worried LOL

    ...and in case anyone is wondering... the Saudi SP was supposed to depart at 11:40am. I wanted the SP but also the EZ Jet... EZ came in around 11:38am and since I had the SP landing, I was not too worried about catching the departure, eSPecially (SIC) since I am pixel starved as most of you know... So I figured the SP was gone.

    I get the EZ and call Mark and ask if the SP has left. He thinks not and is waiting for it at HoBE. So I run over there and by the time I get there, Mark was gone. He had to do some stuff with Family and figured he would miss it as they were ready to go over by the Triple Hangars.

    So, Mark is gone for about 1 hour, comes back after doing his thing, and ON CUE, the damn SP is [now] ready to go... Talk about control of the spotting gods!!

    I even told Eric, this thing is not going to leave until I leave to go get food. Sure enough, we started to head to Cross Bay to get some grub and the pilot calls Ground Control to taxi!!
