“Clouds of Laughter” ……. tales from the cockpit

 A talk by Capt. Michael Joseph


Presented by Billingshurst Rotary Club


Monday 24th February 2020 7.00pm Blacksmith’s Arms, Adversane RH14 9JH 

Michael Joseph is now retired but spent most of his working life as a BA pilot, flying Jumbo Jets and has spoken at previous Rotary Club meetings on Wildflower Meadows, a topic on which he is now an acclaimed expert, and of the importance and value of mentoring young people. “Brilliant”! was the most frequently heard comment from those who came to these talks.

 Ladies and gentlemen, fasten your seat belts for an evening of high entertainment

How did he come to be walking through the terminal building in his Speedo swimming trunks?

Why were the Surrey police throwing stones at the bedroom window?

What happens when a cow confronts a Jumbo jet?

. . . . . . Find out the stories behind these and many more hilarious happenings in the life of an airline pilot. Fact is funnier than fiction.

A buffet supper will be served after this talk
