4th July 2008: Vancouver
Tradition dictates that the morning of a flight home begins with an Ikea breakfast :) On the way home we were then stuck in Calgary in a thunder storm. Canadian Law is that if there is lightening over an airport then they move to code red and all the ground staff stop working. Then we had a further delay because the terminal building was struck by lightening and that caused a power outage! However turns out an almost 2 hours delay wasn't the worst of it! On the way home, about 3 hours out, we experienced the worst turbulence I've ever been in. There was about 20 mins of being chucked about, sudden plummets - basically all adding up to probably the scariest thing I've even been through. Imagine being on a rollercoaster for more than 20 mins and that's pretty much what it was like.
