Air France Flight 45 has taken off two minutes ahead of schedule from Seattle and is heading NW in the direction of Calgary en route to Paris. It carries precious cargo: a French Canadian soul loved by me and known by a Dominican black cat as Beence. But that's a long story.
Beence will arrive in Paris with less than two hours to spare before transferring to his inbound African flight. May his tailwinds be sweet.
(I say that about Ben the labrador, too...)
01/16/08: 8,000 kms later:
Air France Flight 994 en route to Johannesburg left its gate forty-four minutes late: is that because it was waiting for Vince's luggage and paraglider to be transferred??? They will fly over Africa in daylight, missing the beautiful electric storms on the horizon that accompany nightflights but seeing the beautiful northern desert.
