It wasn’t quite a scene from the 1965 film:
No worries though, a safe and swift journey to East Midlands followed. It’s always reassuring to see an infeasibly thin blonde air hostess with far too much make-up. It makes you realise that despite the plane looking like something from WW2, this was a real flight. I hadn’t realised that East Midlands Airport is adjacent to the village of Castle Donington, famous as a former formula 1 motor racing and rock concert venue.
I took the on board easy payment terms at a reasonable APR on a Kit-Kat and a black coffee.
I’m also pleased to report that the journey was nutter free. I think this was at least partly due to the fact we didn’t stop at Drumgelloch.
