Bond, James Bond - 23/10/2021
« on: October 04, 2021, 04:14:44 pm »
To celebrate the launch of No Time To Die (at last) in September 2021, there will be a group flight to Montego Bay in Jamaica - the place Ian Fleming wrote many of the novels.

On this occasion, we'll dispense with our usual silly callsigns in favour of 007 themed callsigns. So, all callsigns will end with 007 and will go in ascending order according to your SAV ID. This means callsigns will be SAV1007 to 9007 - I will obviously be 1007, and we'll move up the numbers in order of SAV ID. In the unlikely event of more than 9 of us flying...well... we'll cross that bridge if we come to it!

Departure airport will be your choice out of our usual hubs, and further details (including routes) will be posted in this thread in due course.

**This event was further postponed along with the film release itself, but has since been brought forward to 23rd October**

Right then peeps, the routes for Saturday are:

EGGD/EGFF:
BCN N864 DIKAS UL9 STU P2 BANBA DCT RODEL DCT 50N020W 48N030W 45N040W 41N050W DCT 3460N DCT NUMBR M331 GHANN UM331 ULDAR R625 TILUP OMAXI5
(Obviously this won't validate on CFMU as you aren't meant to go via DIKAS, but we cannot possibly miss out on DIKAS!).

EGTE:
DCT EXMOR N864 DIKAS UL9 STU P2 BANBA DCT RODEL DCT 50N020W 48N030W 45N040W 41N050W DCT 3460N DCT NUMBR M331 GHANN UM331 ULDAR R625 TILUP OMAXI5
(Or you could potentially use the Newquay route below)

EGHQ:
DCT LND L620 GAPLI DCT RODEL DCT 50N020W 48N030W 45N040W 41N050W DCT 3460N DCT NUMBR M331 GHANN UM331 ULDAR R625 TILUP OMAXI5

Airborne time (that is WHEELS UP) should be no later than 09:30 BST. The EET is looking like 09:30 to 10:00 depending on weather.

Callsign 'allocation' based on my original message, and for those who have indicated they may be joining is:

Me - SAV1007
Trev - SAV2007
Trav - SAV3007
DB - SAV4007
Tony - SAV7007 (not quite in order but would be rude not to let Mr Bond have 7007!).
Jaffa - SAV5007
Mike - SAV6007
Bill - SAV8007
George - SAV9007

If I've missed anyone out then please either reply to the thread or drop me a message directly.

It will probably be worth replying with your intended departure point so we don't end up all on the same stand if a few of us go from the same airport. I will be going from Bristol (just for a change).

There will be some form of entertainment organised for the trip, and possibly a bingo card too!

Look forward to seeing you all online on Saturday. Bring adult beverages (including Rum, we are going to Jamaica after all!). Not forgetting the Vodka Martini also :)

So, I saw there was some P3DV4 scenery for MKJS scenery for the very reasonable price of EUR6. However, it doesn't seem to be available for purchase anymore.

Therefore, I've obtained the scenery and uploaded it for those who want it: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ehauu8uc41a5jrd/RWY26%20MKJS.rar?dl=0
