The Plane Now Standing at Platform 3
by E. James Chapman

When E. James Chapman made plans to take his family on holiday, he ended up getting a lot more than he bargained for…

Murphy’s Law states that whatever can go wrong, will go wrong, and has claimed almost all of us as a victim at one point or another. However, there are several other laws that can strike and cause havoc at any time.

Like many others before them, Chapman and his family fell prey to the lesser-known ‘law of the journey’, which states that the longer a trip is, the more likely things are to go wrong. As they were travelling nearly 4000 miles from Spain to Canada, it couldn’t have happened at a more inopportune time.

After run-ins with an extremely badly behaved family, a riot in the baggage hall, a bout of food poisoning and finally the pilot announcing that he has ‘lost’ the runway, it seems that nothing else on their trip can possibly go wrong.
Or can it...?

The Plane Now Standing at Platform 3 is a hilarious tale which details the extraordinary events that followed the Chapman family halfway around the world and back again. It will particularly appeal to those who have suffered at the hands of inefficient public transport, unhelpful fellow passengers and sheer bad luck.

It is hard to imagine that so much misfortune can befall one family on a single holiday. James Chapman relates the saga of woes with unfailing good humour and in spirited language.
