and planes going to Vancouver have to go over the most remotes parts of Canada and the ice sheet, if it comes down there you will need a bit more than a wooly jumper

In Canada it is the worse

There is a cold, a snow, a hoarfrost, an ice-cold lake

And I forget it   {-) {-) {-) {-) {-)

Well, I am in Vancouver at the moment and it is hot and sunny. It is one of the most attractive cities you could ever hope to visit!

I stand corrected, Dougal.  Although it is supposed to get hotter next week. :}


My post was more about Canada not being all igloos, frozen tundra and polar bears.  Just parts of it {-)

Bob


You must be about to get our heatwave. We've had 29/30 in the south but it's dropping down to 20'ish from tomorrow we're told. As long as it stays dry for tomorrow's display.




Never saw one polar bear when last in Canada or the times before. But then I only seem to get there in the autumn. Ho hum

Maybe you got our last heatwave?  Low to mid 30's, mid to upper 30's if you include the humidex. Too hot, it was hard to sleep.  Next week looks great, upper 20's, maybe 30.  8)


Hope you have great weather for your display tomorrow.


Get on that plane U33, the weather is warm, the beer is cold.

Flying is still one of the safest ways to travel, boring mostly, especially long-haul but it's the only way to travel to get anywhere within a short time. It would be great to cruise/ sail everywhere like I used to when I was a kid but it's no longer practical for most of us.


My advice for long-haul travel, don't eat too much before flying avoiding use of the cramped 'facilities', save space for regular fluids to avoid dehydration from the dry atmosphere. Wear loose clothing and footwear, invest in some decent headphones (preferably noise cancelling) for the inboard entertainment


If you can manage to sleep on board do so it shortens the flight, apart from that, why worry about flying?
People do it all the time, there are hundred of flights passing overhead every day and they have no issues.
Just do it.

And if you do not want to hear the children cry try to sit down behind the device.
Generally the children are at the level of wings, near the central galley

Just seen a tip to reduce fear of flying which is to read up on how it works, etc. The idea being that knowledge conquers fear.



Of course, there may be a flip side to that  :D

Hi,

If possible get as close to the "Black" boxes as you can.

It seems that in a crash most of them are found!

I agree with Plague, read up and get confidence in the theory and practice. of flying  I used to dislike spiders until I read a book on their life cycle, very interesting.  I am chief spider catcher in the family.
The "black" box theory is fine as long as you remember that these boxes an orangy red.  So I suggest you need to wear this colour to take full advantage of the theory.  Mind you finding clothes in this colour might seriously knock your "street cred".

I suggest everyone starts flying by hovercraft. Statistically speaking it's safer than anything else, apart from maybe an ekranoplan.
