Air travel is an ubiquitous affair , you want to travel places therefore you have to place yourself in a flying tin can. Air travel has come on leaps and bounds since I travelled as an Infant in a rickety old Dakota from the outer Hebrides to England. Travel promises the world , well of course it does otherwise it wouldn't be travel would it now.
What I see from air travel now is a world I want to immerse myself within , the only time I came close to first class travel was when an air stewardess threw a Gin and Tonic over me resulting in me wearing a pair of first class pyjamas. They were black pyjamas so the slimming effect was on my side there , only problem was they made me look like an escaped convict.
So on my latest jaunt which was to Orlando Florida I experienced a frightening experience it really properly, defiantly , undeniably was not the best idea to watch the film Flight again. If you haven't guessed it already I am a nervous flyer , but I didn't want to watch Bond and the hairy feet film The Hobbit so I plumped for the film that would add to my nerves. There's nothing like facing your fears full on is there now , travelling in a plane you get buffered around like a lightly tossed airline Caesar salad, turbulence is part of air travel .
But when around 40 minutes of me watching the film flight the seat belt sign came on .. when I am flying I never undo my belt except for the obvious toilet break. We hit turbulence and dropped over 100ft it threw cabin crew off their feet , and it was a very scary moment , i know there will be people with worse.
The flight back what can I say ...
Apparently the beef stew had two pieces of beef in it , my butter milk chicken was chicken korma and the key line pie was verging on the ridiculous. Oh and I thought I 'd try and watch that film again until there was a fire somewhere in Manchester blocking our flight path , resulting in us circling twice think rollercoaster and that's what it was like.
Do I need to watch the film ?? Flight
