Wichita Meet-Up with Jeb, Dave & Jack?

Postby Dave Higdon » Tue Sep 08, 2009 5:12 pm

Any interest? Evening, Thursday, October 1 Friday, October 2, at the Hangar One Steak House's Control Tower Bar...about 5ish -- for 90 minutes to 2 hours?

The restaurant sits just north and east of the centerline for Wichita Mid-Continent's (ITC) Runway 19L, and has an excellent view of the runway and the facilities on the east side of the airport.

Jack and Jeb are supposed to be in town for another event we're jointly attending, and we've Saturday plans for Ponca City to do our podcast there during the first-Saturday-of-the-month fly-in breakfast that morning...

So thought some might be interested in catching us all together for a couple of hours...and if some so desire, they can get a great dinner downstairs in the main restaurant...

Give it some thought...let us know...not a breaker...

Dave
ps -- don't tell Jack or Jeb :roll: ...didn't ask them about doing this ;)

Dave,

I should be able to make it there as well. Sounds like it ought to be a hoot! I bet I can interest Steve in joining us as well. This way we can continue to build on our previous meetup numbers.

I was planning on trying to get there when it was set for Friday. I'll see if I can get off early enough on Thursday to make it out.

Oops! Confusion.

It IS set for Friday. The other day was just an early idea.

Friday at Hangar One Steakhouse, up in the "control tower" bar.

Much better! I have a much greater chance of being able to make it Friday since I'm only working Sunday through Thursday this week. Is the restaurant within walking distance of the airport? Any suggestions on FBO to park at?

OK, Troy...here's the skinny.

The Hangar One Steakhouse is just north of ICT, off the end of 1R/19L...see the info here:

Not sure, but believe your best shot at parking and a lift would be at Yingling http://maps.google.com/maps?oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&q=Yingling+Aviation&fb=1&gl=us&hq=Yingling+Aviation&hnear=Wichita,+KS&cid=0,0,6459859381782974725&ei=gwzGSonQMYfX8AaH3Yg8&sa=X&oi=local_result&ct=image&resnum=1

Believe if you call ahead, you can probably arrange for a lift over...and someone can see that you get back...

Hope this helps...and look forward to seeing everybody there...

Dave
