Flights of Fancy: The Most Unusual Flight-Related Places to Stay!

Host Writer
19/07/2019 Flights of Fancy: The Most Unusual Flight-Related Places to Stay!


We'd like to welcome you on board this brand-new, Host Unusual in-flight experience that's quite unlike any other.

There'll be no safety briefings, ear-popping or uneasy landings. In fact, there'll be no take-off at all, since we'll be remaining firmly on the ground throughout.

All you have to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the view, as we point out some of the very best flight-related places to stay, from planes and helicopters, to control towers (and even the occasional UFO).
