@  Calif_Man : (21 June 2018 - 02:46 PM)

@  lazybugger : (21 June 2018 - 02:35 PM)

Yeah it was torrential around 3 or 4pm

@  Calif_Man : (21 June 2018 - 02:33 PM)

Has it been raining non stop in AC? Are the streets and bars empty when it rains all day? Looking for a weather update. Cheers!

@  ₱20 Bill : (20 June 2018 - 08:30 PM)

You bet. I've got my people looking into it. ;)

@  statusquo : (20 June 2018 - 06:04 AM)

Please do and if you could, start a thread so others may gain the knowledge in the future.

@  ₱20 Bill : (20 June 2018 - 03:25 AM)

Thanks, @statusquo @bill44ca @hey you. Looks like a second trip to SM may be unavoidable. Will report back if I learn differently.

@  hey you : (20 June 2018 - 01:28 AM)

i live in the province dont check anything in never had a problem maybe because they know me on sight

@  statusquo : (19 June 2018 - 11:47 PM)

@bill44ca you are correct. I said size is a concern but they might put it off to the side and that is the only place I know of in SM that does this. Never know until u ask. @hey you not a bad idea but cumbersome cheers!

@  bill44ca : (19 June 2018 - 09:13 PM)

SM grocery will not let you in with bags/packages. Purses only no backpacks. My girl had a very small backpack and they made her check it. This guy was talking about luggage.

@  hey you : (19 June 2018 - 03:37 PM)

sm problem simple dont check your bags if they think your stealing let security stop you at the door on your way out

@  bill44ca : (19 June 2018 - 05:17 AM)

@p20bill if you take the Southern Cross bus they drop you off at your hotel

@  bill44ca : (19 June 2018 - 05:16 AM)

In SM the storage for the grocery is very small square boxes to check your shopping bags and if you have a lot then you get 2 boxes. Not big enough for even a backpack or small suitcase

@  Iamdawon : (19 June 2018 - 12:10 AM)

woohoo alexa bliss won money in the bank then cashes in and beats nia jax and ronda rousey for WWE Raw Championship woohooo cute littlesexy thang lol

@  statusquo : (18 June 2018 - 09:45 PM)

Just the place in SM Hypermart but I am not sure about sizes. Far right as you enter the store

@  ₱20 Bill : (18 June 2018 - 07:20 PM)

Need to do some shopping when I arrive via Genesis bus and would prefer to make just one trip from SM to my place.

@  ₱20 Bill : (18 June 2018 - 07:13 PM)

Anybody, is there a Baggage Storage at SM Clark?

Just wondering if anyone has been on an aerial tour of Mt Pinatubo from AC. Who did you use for it and how was it? Would you recommend it if you like scenery?

Thanks

I did the fly-over Pinatubo to Iba, Zambales in 1998. The memory will stay with me forever and I thoroughly recommend it if such a flight is still available. Ask at the terminal or at a travel agent.

 

It cost $25 then and the 'plane took off from Clark early, passing the peak of Pinatubo very close at a cruising height the same as the volcano with a great view from a cockpit containing four passengers. The view approaching the South China Sea was also spectacular.  It was possible then to stay in Iba or spend two hours there including a paddle in the ocean and then return.

 

Incidentally the grass field at Iba was hit by the Japanese at the same time as Clark.

Don't remember who I used. I think most travel agencies have a connection to someone doing flights.

Did this in 2011 with Vietnam War Veteran Jimmy Boyd and the beautiful restored Navion.  Absolutely worth every peso! Took two girls that had never flown before as the plane sits 4.

And there is a brilliant trip report on this site here:

Hope you do it and write up a report!

 

For those who claim Angeles City is boring, you really have not explored all the options.

Yes, that is the one! Jimmy Boyd was great.  I think he said the 'plane was 1948? As you say, the photos though good cannot do justice to the experience.

 

Another sharp memory of the flight is taking off at Clark. The runway is so big and the experience when climbing very unlike that in a jetliner,  to understate matters greatly!.

Sad to read Jimmy Boyd had passed away in Jan. 2015 according to this Margarita Station report:

 

http://www.margarita...full.php?m=1610

 

The airplane is (was) a masterpiece of a story. I can't find where I read it, but remember reading it had been purchased in the USA and imported to be rebuilt in the PI specifically because Jimmy Boyd loved the 1949 Navion.

 

There is an additional story here similar to the flight described by theplayer.

Thank you very much for the information Asia Smiles.

 

Sad to hear about Jimmy Boyd passing away, RIP.  He was a great host on the flight too. The navion reminded me of a P 51 Mustang.
