World Scout Jamboree 2015

First Flight — NCL–DXB

Written by Adam Blakey

The flight was delayed from the stated departure time due to the fact that the performers for the Sunderland Airshow were using Newcastle airport to takeoff and land; this did mean however, that we got an up-close look at the Red Arrows and other planes performing in the airshow. We ended up taking off at around 14:15 (and I’ll upload a video of the takeoff as soon as I can, featuring Blyth beach).

During the takeoff, I was set next to a girl called Mia (from unit 69) and Gavin (from unit 52), although after the flight was in the air I moved seat and sat next to Josh and Lewis (from unit 52).

The meal was very pleasant, but, once placed on our trays, made toilet-trips incredibly difficult!

I slept for about 2 hours of the plane journey, although I plan to sleep most of my “night’s sleep” on the next flight.
