Hi Wes & Allan Flying related but not fly-tying!
I spent over 3 hours sitting on a full A330 aircraft yesterday at London, Heathrow airport. I arrived at the airport early at 11:30 am due to the adverse road conditions and anticipating extra security screening delays. The flight was scheduled to depart at 13:00 hours but prior to leaving for the airport was delayed until 14:30 (nowhere for incoming aircraft to go). The next problem was that the ground handler ran out of de-icing fluid. By now, it was snowing quite heavily - large wet flakes of snow that froze upon impact. There was no air conditioning and I was in shirt sleeves on the totally full aircraft, trying to cool off. A third party company confirmed availability of de-icing fluid, but we had to wait our turn. When the de-icing truck arrived, they managed to get the tail and left wing de-iced and then ran out of fluid and had to go and refill before continuing. Finally at 18:15 we took off for the 9 hour flight back home. Neville (Nev) Gosling Greater Vancouver, B.C. Canada > Subject: Re: [VFB] Back Home > > Welcome back, Neville.
