Things you don’t want to hear as you taxi on a runway #1

August 14, 2011

Flying to Edinburgh recently, this announcement came over the Tannoy as we prepared for take-off.

“This is your captain speaking. We’d like to apologise for the slight delay here at London Gatwick. This is caused by problems with Air Traffic Control. The computer systems they usually use are not working, so everyone’s having to calculate things in their heads instead.”

Err, ok. Thankfully we arrived in as many pieces as we left in. Go humans!
