Dorkfest is almost upon us. One week from tomorrow, I’ll be at the park across from the In-N-Out at LAX (9149 S Sepulveda Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90045) from 11am to 1pm. Why? To do this:
That’s a photo from last year, and as always, it was a great day of watching airplanes and eating burgers.
As a reminder, this is entirely unorganized. No RSVP is needed, and there is no program. It’s hard to even call it an event. Just show up if you’re in the area and talk shop with others who have gathered to do the same.
As in past years, some airlines have sent some swag over to give away. That includes a model from British Airways, retro hats (and more) from American, and this year, for the first time, there are even a couple of free tickets to give away courtesy of Spirit. I hear United is sending something along as well, and if the rumors are true, it’s going to be something REALLY cool. Even DFW got into the act and sent a bunch of swag.
It should be a fun couple of hours. If you’re in the area, swing by and say hello. If you want more, well, then you’re in luck. NYCAviation is putting on its SpotLAX18 the same weekend, just like last year. Get more details here.
