One of our friends is a retired Cathay Pacific Captain and he informed us that the first jumbo acquired by Cathay was arriving at Kemble to be scrapped. Our friend, I gather, was the first in the company to fly it. There was excitement as a party at "AV8" near the control tower at Kemble was going to be held in honour of this jumbo. Well - we looked out for this monster to arrive. Nothing appeared to lumber out of the skies within our vision. Our friends said it was rumoured to have arrived. There is no hangar big enough for a jumbo. The party came and went - they did not see the jumbo.
Husband and I think have this theory - our friend probably never flew a jumbo, it was a figment of his imagination and he was flying around the world in never never land ???
A Day Out.
