[Closed] Huge Screenshot Session @ EGKK - 281600ZDEC16

Server: Expert (subject to change)

Region: London, United Kingdom

Airport: EGKK - London-Gatwick

Time: December 28th, 2016 @ 1600Z (subject to change)

NOTAM: Please use airlines that correspond to the terminals. :)


Hey everyone! :)

I will be hosting another one of my huge screenshot events. The setting, this time around, will take place at London-Gatwick Airport! Since my last screenshot event was a while ago, I will [briefly] explain the outline of it.

The primary objective here is to fill up gates at a selected airport, in this case Gatwick, and have players spawn in the real world airlines that fly there and park at the real world terminals and gates for the corresponding airline. All players will either stay at their gates or taxi around the airport taking candid screenshots of the other planes standing at the gates. Here are some examples:

Once I, and others, take some screenshots, we will do a short group flight, if time permits, to another airport to top it all off.

Below, I will provide gate numbers that you can be assigned to and I will provide the planes that can be used. Some airlines are assigned to certain piers and gate numbers so I have marked those down. I have sorted gates based on body size. If there’s a wide-body gate, you can still have a narrow-body park there but you can’t park a wide-body at a narrow-body gate. There are some restrictions to what aircraft can be used because they are either not in game for us to use, or the livery hasn’t been updated to a more recent one. There are also planes we will be using that may not be used in real life at Gatwick, but I unfortunately have to adjust to the best compromise. Please use the aircraft I have set in place.

In closing, please remember that reality is key so try to keep things as realistic as possible in this event. Be sure to choose your aircraft wisely. If you do choose one but aren’t happy with it, you’re always free to change. If you want a gate, simply comment below or edit it in yourself if you’re a regular. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to either PM me or respond below in the thread.

I suggest everyone uses this to find out what terminal there airline parks at.

Click on airline then you can scroll through to find yours and it says what terminal. There is also terminal gate numbers on a maps page.

I’ll try to attend these are cool!

Love these so much

Quick question, would it be better if we all bunched up in consecutive gates? I’d be more than happy to change to the northern terminal if it produces a better screenshot. :)

It would be better, but if some want to spread out, they’re welcome to do so. :)

You can change your gate if you’d like. I don’t mind.

December 16 is when my live expires ;( I’ll see if I can renew it.

The event date is actually the 28th, not the 16th. :)

I’m sorry, I actually don’t have the London region anyway ;( but I can still buy it for Christmas! I will notify you if I’m able to make it.

Sounds good. It’s a good thing I scheduled this event after Christmas. ;)

I would like to Join! Seems I’ll come with Garuda’s B77W, British Airways B789 or Virgin Atlantic’s B789. I’ll edit this post later to decide the aircraft ;)

I’ll join =) (British Airways 777-200ER or Monarch 757-200)

I’ll come in the Thomson 789

I might come, timing seems perfect.

Do you have a gate preference?

Please have a peek at the aircraft options I have provided (click the arrow). The only option you can choose out of your options is the VIR 789.

It will have to be the BAW 772. The Monarch 752 isn’t on the aircraft options list. Take a peek at the aircraft options list.

Do you have a gate preference?

Hmm could I have gate 64 please?

Done.

Hope to see you there. :)

I’ll come in a Turkish Airlines B739.

Do Virgin Atlantic use the A346 and B789 from LGW? I looked it up and couldn’t find any sort of indication for the B789, although the A346 had been spotted there but was quite rare.

And another thing: the TK A321 also operates out of LGW.
