Don, It's not far from NAS Norfolk to the commercial airport. Maybe a 10 minute taxi ride. I would be glad to pick you up and take you. I live literally 3 minutes from the airport. Shoot me an e-mail if you make it to NAS Norfolk. Good luck! Anne

Don, That's great. I didn't know they had flight connections from Bangor to Norfolk. Now just hope that ash cloud cooperates and you are able to get off the British Isle.

Elaine, I checked on flights from Bangor to Norfolk, and the price isn't to much more than Southwest. Have several different airlines that fly down. I think the price would work about the same if I figure in getting from Bangor to Boston.

All depends on the old volcano.

Norfolk has on base transportation. They could probably take you around to the commercial side of the airport. When we were there a few weeks ago, they were taking a family over to the other side of the flight line to catch one of the smaller jets.
Best of luck to you to get home asap.

Don, Yes from Bangor to Norfolk would be pretty difficult by train. You would have to be bussed from Bangor to Portland or Boston, then probably change trains a few times before getting to Norfolk, and it would be time consuming. If you could get to Boston, you could take Southwest Airlines to Norfolk pretty reasonably.

Thanks John, I was looking to get from Bangor to Norfolk Int Airport. Would love to land at NAS.

Dee thanks for the idea about Amtrak but I can't remember the last time I took a train and I need to get to Va asap.

The 101 ARW website says they are located at the Bangor International Airport. http://www.101arw.ang.af.mil/index.asp

I would say Amtrack out of Bangor, but I can't seem to get their website to work as far as getting a price/schedule for a trip out of Bangor even though there is a station there.

Ok, now I have found out I can get a plane from Bangor to Norfolk, anyone know about the logistics getting from where a space a bird might land to the airport? I am assuming of course it might be across the runway.

Thanks Jill, but really want to get to Norfolk.

Bangor Maine, Okay I know where it is, but does anyone have any idea how to get out of there to Va? I did check JD FAQ but only phone numbers. Did check a cheap flight from Bangor to Boston, they think 300 is cheap???? I can fly from the UK for 400.

Hate to head for Fairchild, (no offense John G.) but the idea is to get to the East Coast.
