... We approached the first drawing which was the whale. When we were close, the pilot turned hard to the right before doing a full circle around the drawing. The plane was literally sideways and the wings were vertical not horizontal as planes traditionally fly. This would of been a minor highlight for me if I wasn't sporting a category 5 hangover. Chels was also a little green around the gills. I had my money on her to go for the paper bag ...
