Trip Report



Visiting the Flight Deck


In the corridore

Then I saw paramedics and ambulance people going in to Concorde and saw Captain Mills going back in to Concorde…..A few minutes later I saw a passenger being brought out on a stretcher, she was ok but looked like she had been very ill on my flight.


Captain Mills came back out to see how many people where still left, he walked back to the back of queue and walked back to the front of the queue and stood there.


We started chatting Captain Mills happily said

:-

Aren’t you Jet ……….


I (embarrassingly and shyly) replied

:-

Yes I am ……


Captain Mills said

:-

Did you meet my daughter at Heathrow ……..


I replied

:-

Errrrrrrrr …… Yes I did ……….


            (                                                             )

(  When he said this I was expecting him to say  )

(   :-                                                                       )

(   Jet keep your hands off my daughter ….. :-)          )

(                                                                            )

(   But he didn’t say anything like that, he was    )

(   a true gentleman and a really nice person.       )

            (                                                           )


I nervously said

:-

Is your daughter is called is Kate I met her on 14 October 2003 when we where waiting to see a 4pm Concorde take off, but PC Plod upset her by putting  a parking ticket on her car and then towing it away, she was very very upset.


In a good mood Captain Mills replied

:-

You was the only one on that day who had cared enough to ask Kate how she was, After that day Kate had spoken to me about you.


I said

:-

I never knew Kate had told him about me, but it was an honour for me to meet him, I asked him if the Kate was ok.


Captain Mills replied

:-

Kate is ok.


I said

:-

Can you pass my regards to Kate ?


Captain Mills replied

:-

 I will……..


When I asked Kate how she was I did it because she was upset and I hate to see pretty girls upset, ok I cared enough to ask her if she was ok but to me that’s part of human nature if some one is crying you try and help them you don’t coldly just walk away or ignore them.


During the flight Captain Mills sent me a personal invitation to see him on the flight deck of Concorde after we had landed in New York, Captain Mills said

:-  

       Did you get the card ?


I confusedly replied

:-

What card ? ……… No I didn’t get any any card ………


Captain Mills went back in to Concorde spoke to one of the crew and gave me the card.

:-

Front and back of Captain Mills business card inviting me to the flight deck. (Orange bits on the card are deleted personal items)
