Passenger Cosmo Plain 46, told The Druids Loom – ” I said to the man at the airport reception – ‘what’s our plane doing upside down?’.”

Doing Nothing
“He said ‘it’s not doing anything – in fact the verb ‘doing’ is not applicable to this beleaguered aeroplane. I would not use the word ‘doing’ to describe this inert – belly up , non asset to the commercial aviation industry at all. Its demonstrative inability to perform its intended function – due to its unorthodox placement upon the tarmac renders it redundant for the foreseeable future – so ‘doing’ is not on the agenda here. “

Zero Odds
“‘Doing’ implies a form of activity, a purposeful act, an action, a deed, and I’m afraid this once marvel of modern engineering has seemingly capitulated – strongly indicated by its current position. I would therefore anticipate a non-doing display and an imminent extensive delay – nullifying the expectations of one hundred and twenty two passengers who will now have to re-schedule their plans accordingly. This figures strongly in the slim to zero odds I can offer you of ever travelling on this plane.”

I asked him why the plane was upside down and he replied – “don’t ask me – I’m just the cleaner.”
