Friday Night Flight - Pan Am Tribute @ KSEA - 151830ZAPR16

Hey everyone!

Join us for this week’s FNF Event:
PAN AM TRIBUTE FLIGHT

This week’s all server event is to pay tribute to the anniversary of Pan Am’s announcement in Seattle on 13APR1966 for an order of 25 new Boeing 747s. Let’s celebrate this anniversary by filling up the skies in the Seattle Region with the Pan Am 747-200. This is not a requirement but simply a suggestion to follow this week’s theme.

There are no NOTAMS, restrictions, or established routes for this event. Just come out to Seattle Region, test fly your Pan Am 747 (preferred but feel free to fly whatever plane you’d like) or even deliver it from BFI to PDX, SEA, PAE, etc., or even better, fly and do touch and go’s at all of them. Coordinate with other pilots for formation flights, ramp screenshots, and to just enjoy flying for the love of flying and aviation.

Region: Seattle

NOTAMS: None

Server: All Server Event (Your choice)

Aircraft: Pan Am Boeing 747-200 preferred (All aircraft are welcome)!

FNF Event Hours:
Begin - Friday 4/15 @ 18:30 ZULU (10:30am PST)
End - Saturday 4/16 @ 10:30 ZULU (2:30am PST)

Follow all ATC instructions when available, be respectful of everyone who is flying, and most importantly, HAVE FUN!!

See everyone in Seattle! Feel free to share your screenshots!

Happy and Safe Landings!

We should do that in London so you can fly ‘straight outta comption’ (VOR)

And yes I know the airline and the vulgar-word enthusiasts are two different things :)

Or in SoCal, “Straight Outta Compton (Woodley)”.

Are we ever going to have a Virgin America tribute event?

Oh no!The 747-200 is one of the few aircraft that can not control!

Unfortunately I’ve witnessed shenanigans on Advanced in Portland :( I feel bad for ATC
