Please fasten you seat belts, there may be some turbulance; in a few minutes we will pass through the cabin with our drinks service; duty free purchases can be made at the rear of the aircraft ...and, oh yes... the pilot's dead. (Except they didn't announce that last bit until they had landed!)

testing...old window pop-up

Evening :-)

Well, we'll soon see what happens and whether my comments can be saved.

I have never flown and this does not bode well for my thinking that I maydo so one day even though the plane landed safely and seeming all safety procedures worked correctly.

But it must have been frightening for the crew concerned. I bet the passengers will feel a little strange when the time comes to return home...

well I see I'm not the only one up! Just got back from dinner with the boss and our singapore manager and please to see you "made it"! I took off the counter and changed the comment page so it was obviously one or the other.

My mum didn't fly for most of her life, took the boat when she could (including QE2 to USA) but did make the effort to get to Venezuela when I was there...just like riding a bus Gildy...but less stops.

You fixed it!

I love your last comment "just like riding a bus Gildy...but less stops"

And probably correct...maybe I'll get to have a luxury cruise one day(on a boat that is) ;-)

Hope that you had an enjoyable night Span...

I was confused when Radio 4 broke this story, they made it sound as if the plane had flown the whole way from Brussels with him dead at his controls.

Some mistake surely?

No, and don't call me Surely.

Yeah, good landing for a stiff! Welcome back!
