Heeeeey everybody,
I’m very pleased I can (finally) present you the second episode of “FlightReport”!
I made a poll on another post and the result was actually pretty clear:
You guys want to see BritishAirways flight BA1543 from Chicago O’Hare to London Heathrow with the mighty Boeing TripleSeven.
Without further a do: Let’s fly!

It’s late night in Chicago and BA1543 is going to be one of the last planes to leave KORD today. If all goes well, we will land in London at about 2pm local time.
