from Nairobi to UK baby says ' I want to be born in Malta'












On my way home two days ago , Monday 21st I saw a plane about to land. I had to look at the plane twice as it was not an airline that usually comes to Malta. I found this strange and curious........... well I was right to be suspicious on board this plane which was on its way from Nairobi Kenya to UK a woman was about to give birth!!!

The aircraft had to fly low for a long time so that it reduced the large amount of fuel on board and so that the danger level is reduced.

As it stopped on the taxi way, an ambulance from Mater Dei was waiting for the plane to quickly transport the woman to hospital.

photo was taken from a local source (not me!!)

That is some amazing stuff,I wonder if the child will ever come back to check out where he was born once he/she grows up?? Great shot by the way.

If the baby is a girl I hope they call her VIRGINIA.

Virgin Atlantic is one of the nicest airlines in the world and will prosper when a lot of others fail due to the price of oil and related fuel costs.

This is a really dramatic photograph. Well done.
