Braving the snow in Oslo
Everything on the trip thus far has been incredibly well prepared theme-wise. The visit to Oslo and SAS was absolutely consistent with this expectation – we landed in a light snow! It was chilly outside but the hangar was plenty warm with good fun.
The SAS crew put on a great show, including a traditional dance troupe and one of their very own flight attendants who is also a quite good singer performing a couple tunes. She actually used the wing of the 737 as the stage for one of the performances; I’ve got video of that to post later.
There was a quite informative demonstration by the Norwegian Air Force of the processes they go through for evacuating soldiers. They had one of the planes configured inside with stretchers rather than regular seats and even a couple demo patients there.
As part of the safety and patient evac demo they popped one of the emergency slides and Tommy got to ride down it from the plane. The rest of us were only able to pretend but we still had some fun with it.
And then our time in Oslo came to an end. The band played on but we boarded the plane again and headed out to Toulouse.
