Sports legend travels back centuries
1:00pm Saturday 18th August 2012 in Lyme Regis
THE Lyme Regis launched Jurassic Airlines ride was a hit with former England cricket captain Mike Gatting.
The batting legend booked a whole Jurassic Airlines flight for members of the England Ladies Cricket Team and coaches in Weymouth.
The time travelling simulator was stationed outside Weymouth Pavilion for the Olympics.
Cricket fan Richard Hartnell, who is Jurassic Airlines inventor and chief executive, was presented with a signed cricket bat.
He said: “As a huge cricket fan I couldn’t believe my eyes when one of my heroes appeared at check-in. I was performing security myself at the time, so it was a great thrill and privilege to be able to check everyone in through Jurassic security and the Humiliascan.”
Richard said that they all had a wonderful flight back to see dinosaurs 250million years ago.
