Virgin on the ridiculous

Rough time for Virgin Atlantic flight VS109

Dahlings, My dear friend Rich has big plans to expand his Virgin Empire where the inaugural flight took place to fly from Atlanta to Manchester.

However, getting back to Atlanta proved to be a bit tricky due to involvement of the Manchester Airport Fire service.

They had one task to do and that was to give a water cannon salute as the plane left to go back. After all, what could go wrong with a water salute?

Well, go wrong it did, as someone pushed the wrong button and sprayed the plane with fire suppressing foam which clogged the engines.

Instead of the 10:35 am departure, the flight was delayed for 5 hours before it was finally cancelled.

Way to go Manchester Airport – What a way to loose your Virginity !

Ciao for Now,
Cleo.
