The plane had taken off from the air-field in London, and the journey to South Africa, to Johannesburg had started. It was just after the war, and it was not a jet, as it is nowadays, but it was a big plane with four engines, and four propellers, of course.
When a few minutes later we were crossing the Channel, one of the engines went wrong, but the stewardess said there were three engines left and the passengers were quite safe.
When the plane reached the Mediterranean Sea, the second engine broke, but the stewardess told us there was nothing to worry about because two engines were quite enough to keep us in the air.
As we got near to the shores of Africa, somebody said that only one propeller was working. The stewardess kept her mouth shut this time.
Presently we were flying over the jungle in Central Africa and fellow travelers were terribly upset. Women were holding their children tighter and tighter and men were drinking more and more heavily…I was terribly nervous, and as I looked down, I could not help thinking of death.
At that moment the loud-speaker was switched on, and the captain’s voice was heard, “Ladies and gentlemen, I have tragic news for you.”
The faces of the passengers turned pale. Some burst into tears. My heart sank into my boots…
The captain continued in a gloomy voice, It is my sad duty to inform you that England has lost her last football match against Scotland.”
