My plane home.


A small indication of how busy it is at Gatwick. We were waiting to move forward to take off, 6 planes queued behind us, the EasyJet in the air was just landing. As soon as its wheels touched the ground the Norwegian plane rolled forward for it take off. Probably one in or out every 30 seconds.

Funchal airport. Flat land is at a premium and the runway had to be built on stilts.

That’s interesting Eleanor, I wonder if its the only place in the world that has its runway on stilts?
