NOTAM: Make sure to use only Southwest Airlines Aircraft! If you choose a Special Livery (Like Illinois One) no one else may take it for realism

Welcome to my first FLY IN event! Instead of a fly out, I thought I’d make an interesting fly in event where you fly in from originating Airports to a single airport destination.

In June 1998, Southwest Airline choose Manchester, NH as it’s new airport to fly into. This would allow fares to drop, in which was called “The Southwest Effect”.

Southwest Airlines offered services to Philadelphia, Orlando, Tampa, Baltimore, and Chicago-Midway.

They then expanded to other cities, such as Phoenix, Denver, Nashville, Kansas City, Las Vegas, and Ft. Lauderdale to name a few.

Today, Southwest is still the biggest Carrier in Manchester, NH, carrying more passengers than other carriers flying there. Unfortunately, we now have a fraction of destinations than what we originally had back in the day (due to Southwest’s decision to serve Boston).

Originating Airports

You will choose an airport to fly out of, and you will be able to fly to MHT in any Southwest Livery. Choose your starting airport

I wish I could join but I’ll be on a Southwest flight at that time.

Sorry I’ll have to miss it

Is 18:30Z arrival or departure time?

Well this sounds interesting and I would love to fly with other people in the USA but I am riding with a bicycle through Germany in April

It would by the arrival time, as this event is a Fly-In event.

I’ll have to coordinate how we can get the inbound flights from the Midwest to land at around 1:30pm or by at least 2:30
