Everything has gone to plan. We will shortly be boarding the aircraft at Gate D1. ETA Manchester is 9.30am but that may change.
We check out of the hotel at 11am. We have a wait for our coach to take us to the airport at 2.30pm so we have decided to return to the cinema to take in another movie and get a snack lunch.
Our flight SQ051 from Houston (IAH) is due to depart at 6.40pm and is due to land at Manchester (MAN) at about 8.30am. We will attempt to update this blog from Houston if the flights are on time. We would appreciate the students being collected from T2 – perhaps they could call you when we are through with baggage.
We’ve had a fabulous, once in a lifetime experience, at NASA. Thanks for being a wonderful group of students.
