I wish I had some additional news to share about Aviation Geekfest 2012, but right now the Future of Flight and I are still working things out and since nothing has been 100% locked down, I am unable to share the details. I can say that #AGF12 should be bigger and better than any one before it and I am very excited.
It looks like it will probably start either late morning or early afternoon and go into the evening on Sunday February 19th. There were will be parts where you must sign up (because of limited space) , but others when anyone and everyone can show up (later in the event).
We aren’t sure what will happen right now, but I can tell you that something WILL be happening — so make plans to be here.
What you can do for now is sign up for the #AGF12 mailing list. By signing up, you will make sure to hear about all the updates as soon as we have them. Although I will keep updating my blog about details, it is best to be on the list since there were will be limited slots for the really cool stuff and you do not want to be late to register.
Things got a little busy in 2011 and we did not have an official Aviation Geek Fest of 2011, but that is not going to stop us from having one soon. It has been decided that the next Aviation Geek Fest will be on Sunday February 19, 2012. Currently I am working with the Future of Flight and Boeing to do some cool things this year.
Nothing is locked down yet, so I can’t share, but you are not going to want to miss out on this one.
What is Aviation Geek Fest you ask? It is an opportunity for those who love aviation and airlines to come together in Seattle and celebrate and experience some pretty cool aviation related things. Check out Aviation Geek Fest from 2009 and 2010.
We aren’t even sure of the time, if it will cost money, how many people we can have come (it has been about 50 in the past) or any other details you will want to know. I can say that we like to make it better each year and that is the goal this year.
For now, mark you calendars and stay tuned.
Last year’s Aviation Geek Fest was awesome. This year is going to be even better. Meet and hear Boeing Historian Mike Lombardi speak, tour the factory floor (like literally on the floor, not on the balcony like with public tours) of the Boeing 767, 777 and 747-8 production lines, meet other aviation nerds and quite a bit more. Oh and guess what Boeing 747-8 has in production right now? That’s right, the very first Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental.
If you are going to be in the Seattle area on Saturday, October 23, 2010, you are on Twitter and this sounds like something you might be interested in, get ready! Only 45 tickets will be made available to purchase starting at 11am (PST) this Friday October 15th for $20.00. Once they are gone… they are gone! The event is being hosted at the Future of Flight and will all take place at Paine Field.
If you are not able to make it, do not worry. You will be able to follow on Twitter and I am sure there will be a blog written up on it as well.
