We’re only three short days away from Cranky Dorkfest 2023! I’m looking forward to seeing everyone there.
- What: Cranky Dorkfest 2023
- When: Saturday, September 9, 2023 from 11am to 1pm PT
- Where: The park across from the In-N-Out at LAX
- Who: All are welcome, and there is no cost
- Why: Because you like watching airplanes and talking shop with fellow airline dorks
If you were lucky enough to get one of the spots for the morning airfield visit at the Flight Path Museum, you should have received an email with instructions. If you didn’t get that, let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I won’t spoil all the giveaway items right now, but we do have two GeminiJets 1:400 scale Hawaiian 787-9s to give away. We had talked about reserving one of those airplanes for those who donate to support Maui fire relief, but that adds too much complexity. Instead, I’m just asking for everyone who is considering a donation to consider choosing one of these options via ‘Āina Momona to have the greatest impact.
One final (and really annoying) note… it appears that LAX has shut down runway 24R starting today through the end of the year for work, so the arrivals may be a bit further away than usual. That’s a bummer, I know. But it won’t stop us from eating burgers and talking shop.
Update: Runway 24R will now be open! The closure has been delayed a few days.
See you Saturday.
