Down to Gibraltar @ LXGB - 051700ZJAN18

Gibraltar Int’l. Known for it’s challenging approach and short runway. Only 3 airlines operate into Gibraltar (British Airways, Easyjet and Royal Air Maroc). Because this airport is so special i’ve invited the IFC to join me on this trip down to Gibraltar.

BA A319, T5 A20 Speedbird 420

What time should I be at Heathrow airport UK time ?

I don’t think it’d be advisable to land a 777 on a 5,500ft runway. Maybe replace it with a 757?

I have tired it before and it is possible. But I might change it to a 757.

1500Z or 1500GMT. At this time of the year Zulu is the same time as GMT

I can do ATC ground and tower at Gatwick

Sure. I will add you to the list

Is the any ATC at Gibraltar

Yes, there will be. I need to add that.

I think it’s even worse with the 757 considering it’s an older aircraft…

But the 757 is smaller and needs less runaway

I might be able to do ATC or show up. Not quite sure yet, however.

You’ve got plenty of time.

True, BUT the 757 is very hard to control. Just be aware ;)

I find it easy. I’m part of the DHL VA and the 757 is our main plane. I find it very easy to control.

Anyway this isn’t the “argue about the 757” thread, so why don’t we focus back to the event.

@Nick_Wing please sign me in. Call sign SPEEDBIRD 88 - Gate A18 (London Heathrow) - Boing 777- 200 ER. Thank you

Nice idea, I think the 777 would be hard but possible so guys, give yourselves a challenge,

Awesome event idea! I was just playing COD WW2 at Gibraltar! It’s beautiful.
