However, you were not in the air for 56 hours.

That is totally different to a normal flight, and this is the first time
you have spoken of mechanical, and crew issues to explain the time taken.
Your journey was extended beyond the normal travel time for that particular
trip. The airline obviously had no deliberate intention of turning the trip
into an ordeal for all taking that flight.


True, but if the problem is how long the bum is on the seat, the height
of the plane doesn't matter. London--Sydney is about 24 hours flight
time, though I don't think that any commercial airlines (can) fly
non-stop.

An 18000 km flight. You should move to Europe. From here most places are
only max. 10-12000 km away.

they can't, which is why the flight is broken up into at least two
segments.

not that it matters, since those in premium cabins can either turn
their seat into a bed, or they actually have a bed.

OK - thanks. The longest flight I've ever had took 56 hours (London to
Sydney). We arrived on the aircraft which had departed from Heathrow 24
hours after ours had departed - and that was late too!

no it wasn't.

your *entire* *trip* might have been 56 hours, especially with irrops,
but no one flight was anywhere near that long.


...and there is also the UTC+10 hour time difference to be accounted for.
That means a total actual travel time of ±46 hours, with ±30 hours in the
air.


Sadly you are mistaken this time, Savageduck.

It took 56 *REAL* hours from the time of take off from Heathrow until
the time of arrival in Sydney. Not the easiest of journeys with three
children under the age of nine!

That is correct.

Agreed. I had no idea anyone might be interested.

Your journey was extended beyond the normal travel time for that particular
trip. The airline obviously had no deliberate intention of turning the trip
into an ordeal for all taking that flight.


Absolutley not! I did actually write to the Chairman of British Airways
after the event to point out that due, no doubt, to the mechanical
problem experienced intially, the next landing was, in my opinion,
dangerous. My letter WAS acknowledged but I was advised that the
internal enquiry into the events would not be made public.

I like the greyscales, especially #3 - it does a great job bringing out
the design of the place, like architectural photos from the mid-20th
century.

Not so much greyscale as Fujifilm in-camera film simulation. In this case
Acros. I shot using a film simulation bracket of Std(Provia), Classic
Chrome, and Acros.

Here is another photographer’s use of Acros in-camera.

One day you'll be able to hire a drone and your camera of choice and be

Naah! That takes everything away from actually being there.


BTW meant to ask if anyone here has ever taken a helocopter trip over the
grand canyon as recently one crashed with 6 Brits on board (not that the
nationality matters) 3 of who have died in a crash apparently the 2nd for this company.


Not the Grand Canyon, but I have taken a helicopter trip from Skagway,
Alaska up to the Ferrebee Glacier, and that was well worthwhile.

I'll hire a drone I think

For the Grand Canyon perhaps, except drones are banned in the US National
Parks, so no drone.

A sad event indeed. :-(

It's impossible to do justice to the Grand Canyon without you seeing it
for yourself. It really *IS* awesome!

You could do it with a web interface and have something like "Kodak
Picture Spot" preprogrammed so that you could click a spot and have the
drone go there and make a snap for you. Would be way safer for most
folks concerned than having people like you trying to operate it
manually!
