Pretty Air Stewardess on my Concorde.

Red Roses on G-BOAD (pretty flowers for a pretty girl)

When I got to Concorde’s front door I could see a very pretty British Airways Air stewardess in the door way, on my right hand side in the corridor next to Concorde’s door there was a guy who I thought was the Concorde division’s manager he was waiting for me……Before I boarded the plane he smiled and shook my hand, in happy voice he said

:-

Good luck, I’ve seen you on TV.


I thought :- …… boy people must know me


With a smile as big as the sun I very happily replied

:-

   Thanks


He was a really nice guy and what he did for me, made me extra special and happy, he made me feel like a celebrity even though I aint a celebrity…… Before I boarded my Concorde I looked in the door frame to check the plane’s number plate and it read G-BOAD.


G-BOAD is the fastest Concorde in the fleet, she holds two transatlantic world speed records and on 8th October 2003 she set another world record by flying from Heathrow to Boston in 3hrs 5 minutes and 34 seconds….. so I knew I was on the best of the BEST and the fastest Concorde in British Airways fleet but I was in hurry to get to my seat and didn’t have time to really think that I was boarding a world record breaker.


After 27 years of chasing and dreaming about Concorde I finally stepped on board, as I stepped on board I was utterly thrilled, the first things I saw was a very pretty 20 some thing stewardess ….


I thought

:-

   Wow what a  pretty looking girl wonder if she’s single ………  


then I saw a tray of small tray of red roses.
