Today we had the very cool opportunity to see history made—when the first passenger plane arrived in St Helena. Of course it was a bit late. After several test flights into St Helena by a smaller jet, the Comair 737 operated by British Airways made its first landing in advance of the official airport opening on May 21st.
The plane took two passes before wheels down. When it taxied to the terminal it flew South African and St Helena flags from the cockpit windows.
