Our First Ever Visit to Florida - Part 6
After watching 2 or 3 films a lot of the flight has gone and its not long before you're approaching the descent into Orlando airport we were given a quick bite to eat a muffin and coffee or tea, as this was our first long-haul flight it had seemed quite a long journey something that seems to pass quicker every time you make a transatlantic flight.
Time to put away the kids colouring book and pack up the Gameboys, yes this was many years ago we took them both there portable Nintendo game boys, these were wonderful devices to keep the kids occupied on the journey or even on a trip to the pub.
Seat back trays up an announcement comes over the tannoy we are starting our descent into Orlando international airport and soon I will be putting on the fasten seat belts sign, everyone decides they need a trip to the loo before we come into land and a queue forms.
Soon everyone is buckled into there seats the stewardess walks down the aisles checking the seat belts and seat trays are stowed away and the seats are upright of course the seat in front of us is never upright and the occupant has to be told off by the stewardess!
The kids can feel the pressure changing as the decent starts to steepen and the plane starts to bank one way and then another our youngest lad is a little concerned about this, a couple of hard boiled sweets are dished out to help their ears with the pressure.
You can now see houses out of the window as the plane turns and banks little houses with there own swimming pools you can see the excitement on the kids faces as they see this, there are lots of small lagoons and swamp-like areas as you come in lower and lower, the ground is getting really close now, the airport lights and fence is just up ahead of you.
You feel the aircraft drop and slow and then the thump when the wheels hit the ground and you can hear the tyres rumble on the concrete, the nose of the aircraft drops to the floor you’re down, the pilot reverses the thrust on the engine you see the flap’s on the wings lift up as the plane starts to slow.
That’s it you have arrived you have landed safely at Orlando International Airport.
