vZBW's 9th Annual Boston Tea Party - 7/19/08


Recommended Posts

The 9th Annual Boston Tea Party is just around the corner! This year's annual event will be held July 19, 2008 live from the Daniel Webster College campus in Nashua, NH from 12:00 PM - 8:00PM EDT (1600z - 0000z). As many seasoned VATSIM pilots can attest to, this exclusive event is the most thrilling, interactive of them all. With the opportunity to receive payware prizes from our sponsors and to be a part of the thousands of operations handled by our finest controllers, who wouldn't love to join us in the fun? This year's event will feature over 28 of our controllers together (possibly a VATSIM record?) in Nashua and many of our other dedicated controllers and staff members logging on from home.

Yes,

 

I believe there will be a few hungover heads today, so guys, please be gentle with them at the start .

 

This is looking to be an amazing event, with all TRACON positions open within the ARTCC! Time to fire up your favorite prop or light jet and fly around with some of the best ATC on VATSIM.

 

Have a ball guys! Really wishing I was there.

 

Cheers!

Paul.

We were all sober when we called you to tell your voicemail we wished you were here...

 

 

Of course that was then... now... not sure about the sober part... Perhaps we'll all be sober sometime Sunday.

Having the runway in sight just at TDZE + 100 is like Mom, Warm cookies and milk, and Christmas morning, all wrapped into one.

I flew JFK-BOS this afternoon when I got home from work. United 1004 Dash-8. It was SUPERB! It was 100% just as if I flew that route for real. The controllers and other pilots I heard during the time I was online all sounded just like they do when I'm flying for real or listening on ground. Even the delays were realistic! Providence approach was ROCKING. I mean seriously, in real life, I can't get a word in edgewise and that was replicated perfectly here too!!

All together the flight was amazing and some great controllers, but the one inparticular I would like to thank is Dan Everette (SP?). One could have easily confused Dan as a real-world controller remaining calm and collected while kicking royal . Great job Dan and ZBW!!! As always great event!

Excellent fun,

 

Initially flew in as USA2039 from DCA nice and early and made 2 attempts do depart as JBU1219 to BUF. Unfortunately FS crashed both times holding at 22R. By then was getting late over here so gave up but was all good fun though
