Potentially the most random question ever...

Just gan hang around the airport asking if you can borrow someones plane. Make sure to grow a beard though to keep your chin warm for when you're flying though.

 

:lol:

 

I'm honestly being serious. Need to get from Newcastle to Hull in about an hour on Saturday and that's looking like the only way!

No, but I guess smaller airports are the best. When I lived in Oxford there were a load of private aircraft flying out of there.

 

Not sure in the North East, do we have any small airports?

 

(Obviously it will cost you mad loot, but I assume you realise that)

 

Or try a boat!

Has anybody ever hired a helicopter before or chartered a small plane ?

 

I've been looking around the internet but not having too much joy at the moment.

No, but they always do it on don't tell the bride. [/idontwatchdonttellthebrideipromise]

There's a flying club at Newcastle Airport - give them a call.

 

A mate of mine used to fly a 2 seater out of there years ago but his licence has expired.

 

I can give him a call if you like to see if he knows anyone.

That'd be brilliant, would really appreciate that. :thup:

 

You can get flying lessons for a few hundred quid, just go book one of them and ask them to drop you off in Hull.

 

I'm actually tempted to try this. :lol: Can't see it working but it's worth a try!

 

I'll actually be flying over Hull on Saturday but I can't stop, you're more than welcome to parachute out though mate.

 

PM me for more details

 

You have to be taking the piss? :lol:

 

Got to tell us why it's so urgent to get to Hull... organ transplant/drug running/emergency supply of fake tan for Phil Brown?

 

It's nothing that exciting unfortunately. The mackem twat will never run out of fake tan though! :razz: Quite simply, a friend and I don't want to miss the Blackpool game but there's a huge rugby league game in Hull that kicks off at 6pm that we're also desperate not to miss. We're trying to figure out a way of making both and this is looking like the best, albeit expensive, option at the minute.

I know it isn't going to be cheap but that was just stupid for what I wanted. Tried calling them earlier but got no answer, will be trying again soon. Thanks for the help by the way.

Just call the police in Hull and tell them there's a suspicious package in the stadium. They evacuate due to a bomb scare, search the place, find nothing and you fly down on the next budget airline flight out of Newcastle in time for it actually starting. :) ;)
