Bon Voyage Sentosa!!! Off to the airport now I should think (getting used to these time differences is a challenge!)

Good luck to Don and Tim, and to Sentosa!

Hope Don remembered to pack his second pair of trousers!

Exclamation Re: The 'Bon Voyage' Thread! - Flight Tracker!

OK....Sentosa has departed slightly ahead of schedule on the Virgin Atlantic flight #VS28 from Orlando to London Gatwick and her plane is currently over the Atlantic Ocean, heading northeast:

or of course for extended details of the flight (eg. when leaves the departure gate, taxis on to the runway, departs and real-time maps of the flight tracker, go to:

http://www.flightstats.com (US airspace) Go to the flight tracker for a real-time map!

Bon Voyage!

Welcome home guys!
Maybe I am wrong, but I thought they were not supposed to land until the 22nd which is tomorrow. If I am wrong and they are already there, has anyone heard from them yet? I know it's early, but I am so excited for them!!

PS: Looked up the flight. They arrive in Heathrow at 5:49 am local time on the 22nd. Only a few hours to go

Arrived safely after a good flight managed to get some sleep we had 4 seats between the 2 of us. Gatwick was misty and gray , and still rather gray this afternoon, but saw my first snowdrops and daffodils are all in bud. Doesn't feel too cold not as cold as Florida as been this winter.

Well done and lovely to hear from you.

Nothing like spring flowers in the UK.

Great news on your seats, hope I am so lucky.
