Your First Flight


My first flight is a memorable event in my life. I received a letter along with a plane ticket from my uncle at Chittagong. He asked to go there and stay with them for a couple of days. The ticket was for a Fokker flight on September 30, 2018. I reached the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport about one hour before the flight, I had my ticket checked and my luggage weighed and took the boarding card. After about fifteen minutes the flight was announced. Going along with other passengers towards the tarmac, I boarded on the plane. My seat was by the side of a window. Just in front of me, there was a sign with the words: “Fasten your seat-belt. No smoking.” After a few minutes, the plane moved along the runway and then began to rise into the sky. I saw outside. The houses below looked like doll houses, the paddy fields looked like green carpets and the rivers appeared as broad lines on a drawing sheet. The air hostess came with a tray in her hand and gave some light and delicious refreshments. In about 40 minutes the plane landed at Chittagong Airport and we came to our journey’s end. It was an enjoyable flight that filled my heart with thrill and excitement.
