News just in this afternoon on the BBC news site. I reckon Bill must have been in the cockpit lending a hand! 😉 😂

Ciara helps BA break flight record
A British Airways flight from New York to London has broken the record for fastest subsonic flight across the Atlantic - attributed in part to strong winds.. and exceptional piloting skills!
The journey took just four hours and 56 minutes - more than an hour faster than normal.
The record is 17 minutes faster than the last one set in 2018.
BA said its pilots had made the most of the conditions.

Good for you, Bill.

I also heard on the radio earlier that the plane achieved speeds of 800 mph, impressive for sub-sonic, apparently.

A virgin flight was only just slower , and its still over an hour slower than a Concorde flight , having to wait for a near hurricane isnt very reliable transport planning :)

Great that the QOTS got the record before they all go though.
