[Closed] Friend Ship Farewell @ KSFO - 211200ZOCT17

Server: Expert [Global]

Region: Earth

Airport: KSFO

Time: 10/21/17 - 1200Z

NOTAM: As many of you know, United is retiring their first B747 - The Friend Ship. Known as the Queen of the skies, this aircraft changed commercial aviation. I thought it would be fitting to recreate its first flight from San Francisco (KSFO) to Honolulu (PHNL). You must be a Grade 3 to join, and there are limited spots. Please make sure you can make the whole flight, as it will be a 4-5 hour flight. We will arrive in Honolulu around 1700Z.

would only be able to join if it was at 1300 zulu.

any way to change time a bit?

I’ll come! Could I have gate D53? Thanks!

Actually I can’t come. The flight is too short so I’ll be sleeping while you land.

I would like gate D57.

I would like to get gate D55!

@Etrain Sorry, but I cannot change the time.

@AustralianFlyer Sorry to hear that. Hope to see you at one of my next events!

@Rally_Vose @Justin_Chan See you there! :)

The event is tomorrow! Does anybody else want to join? There’s still time!

Can’t make it sadly. I wish I could☹️

Not a lot of time left to join! Do I have any takers?

Sign me up, but I can be a bit late by 10-20 Minutes

May I possibly grab a spot for the flight? Would love to join!

@B747fan See you there! Please find your callsign above. Try to make it as close to the start time as possible, since it is a long flight we will be pushing back at 1200Z sharp.

@FlyForever Sure! Please find your gate and callsign above.

Can i have a gate Please myfellow pilot

You can’t get a gate now we are already on Air

Join now and just fly to PHNL (Maybe you will catch them.)

Either way… Its a great flight!

Just got disconnected 15 minutes away from Honolulu due to Global Server Problem. Stinks, but hopefully we can do another flight soon!
