‘Dreamland Junction’, the ghost railway station master from the past, cannot help but see the irony of the first flight of a commercial plane across the UK with no bu@@er steering in the cockpit!
The pilot was sitting on the ground hundreds of miles away steering on a Microsoft Windows joystick from PC World.
Unfortunately it landed without incident. So look out, the fools will be doing it with us on board next to save money on pilots.
If this mad idea ‘takes off’ (no pun intended) commercially, we now stand a good chance of not only finding no-one from the UK Border Control to check us in and out of ‘Blighty’ but also get on the plane to find there’s no one actually in the cockpit to fly the crate!
Only in Britain, eh? Only in Britain!
