Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome on board from the captain. My name is Colin Hilton and I shall be doing the flying this morning. Our route takes us from the airport to the wider world of aviation, with perhaps a glimpse of a personality or two enroute. Judgment will occasionally be clouded and I anticipate a little turbulence in relationships, besides odd flashes of inspiration. Do not let such rumblings spoil your enjoyment of the service. The crew today will be on hand to assist your journey. They will happily answer queries on aspects of flight safety. These may not all appear on the card in the seat pocket, neither should you expect the commercial pressures attending us to feature in the in-flight magazine. Once in the cruise we might see the origins of flight, while I shall speak to you later on the consequences of flight at 35,000 ft to our health and environment. In the meantime, do please sit back, relax and enjoy the read.
