Today is the 23rd of August, and that means we’re a mere one month away from Dorkfest. I’ve done a ton of planning since I first posted the date. Oh wait, no I haven’t. There is no planning to be done. Just show up and watch airplanes.
It’s very simple. Show up at the In-N-Out Burger at the east end of the north runways at LAX (9149 S Sepulveda) between 11am and 1pm, and I’ll be there at the park across the street watching airplanes and eating a burger. I’ve heard from many of you that you’re coming, and I’m excited to see all you regulars again. I’ve even heard from a few first-timers as well, which is always great. There’s nothing quite like watching someone feel that first A380 fly over.
As always, if you have swag and want to give it away, bring it with you. I actually received a note from someone at Southwest saying the airline wanted to provide me with a model of a 737 to give away. I’m told it may even be a MAX. We’ll see about that whenever it shows up. If you’re at an airline and want to participate, go for it.
If you’re thinking this is too far to travel for just some unorganized event, you’re wrong. But you can always pair it with the NYC Aviation/PHX Spotters meet-up if that makes it better. Or, stick around into the next week and attend the APEX Expo in Long Beach to see what’s new in the passenger experience.
I hope you see you at In-N-Out on September 23.
