Attention everyone, I am holding an event. This event was originally planned to celebrate the launch of the 747 last year, but I fell suddenly ill. Back then I was COO of BA VA so it is largely based around BA.
Basically this event celebrates the 747 and the beauty of British Airways, it was originally BA launch flight. We will be flying EGLL-EGBB-EGLL. So, in other words, we start at Heathrow, touch and go at Birmingham, and back to Heathrow. I would appreciate a Master of Flight arranging and leading the route if possible, probably someone from IFEP, since I’m an awful pilot!
We will have a wide range of aircraft - I need to find out who is coming so that I can arrange the order of takeoff and formation.
You can come in the following A/C but let me know if you want to use another as the list is not definitive.
These are needed to escort us, mainly the big airliners at the front which are representing BA.
These are cruical, as they are the main focus of the event, leading us. Experienced pilots please.
We are only having 747 on this event as it is about the 747!
to flag the larger airliners
BA Embraer ERJ190
General Aviation Craft
Feel free to use a Cessna 172. Alternatively you could come in Cirrus SR22 please use the red livery. (3)
Please note these small craft will be at the back of the formation
CESSNA 208 RESERVED FOR EVENT OFFICIALS!!
Formation/Flight Plan Info So Far
@2345 Is organising our flight plan and formation. At the moment we will go to Birmingham and all aircraft except certain special craft and fighters will touch and go. We will PM you with details of if you need to touch & go or not.
I hope this is of use.
Event is scheduled to take place on Tuesday this week at 6:30PM GMT London time. Please check back for updates.
