Transatlantic excitement

Everyone has their 15 minutes of high drama and this was mine. On the hottest day on record for a long time, following my first (well second I suppose) transalantic flight on a British Airways 747, and after circling Heathrow for 45 minutes  because the tarmac had softened too much in the heat, I safely landed only to have an engine explode on the shuttle back to East Midlands.

There’s a long story which has a funny ending if anyone is ever interested – I’ve bored many a person with it over the years!
