the ‘wright’ invention

Earlier, we used to stare them (birds) flying above us, but now; we fly above them (birds) and no one stare us because; its not a wonder anymore.

Hats Off to the ‘Wright Brothers’.

The pic has been taken in Cantt, Lahore near the new airport and the airline is Pakistan International Airline (PIA), Pakistan’s national carrier.

    i second that – but don’t even think to fly with PIA specially on an international flight; in my life i haven’t such pathetic service.

    I’d love to see the new Super Jumbo Airbus A380 in PIA livery…

    A dream that is too good to be true :) – no airport is able to tackle that gaint plane. If they start upgrading today, it’ll take them three years to upgrade a single airport.

    I think the a 380 is over rated !!!

    @bilal:

    correct, i still feel Concord was a thing to fly on – how ironic, in this age – we don’t have a single super-sonic commercial jet.

    Concorde’s history while Virgin Atlantic’s SpaceShipOne is the future. Just think about people going to space for Eid holidays… lol!

    And it’s possible in very near future. :)

    @ HM:
    thnx..

    n it seems that some sort of fictious discussion have started here..
    but I also believe it’s gonna happen sometime in future..

    According to Oppee’s n Hassan’s comments, I can predict one thing that when the world would be coming to it’s village (earth) for Eid Holidays, Pakistan would be going to visit the space for the Eid celebrations.
    :-D

    just kidding..
    Allah knows better..
    chao..
