Dec 24th 2010 12:40PM Years ago in the days of Braniff Airlines I was relaxing in the upper deck lounge of a 747 on a flight from Gatwick UK to Dallas. A female flight attendant was being entertained by an elderly man and plied with drink . Suddenly we encountered severe turbulance. For Some reason the flight attendant staggered over to where I was sitting and vomitted all over my jacket and pants . Flying is still an adventure .
