(c) Peter @ Peter’s Pondering

One way ticket

Peter took plane from its hiding-place and held it delicately, remembering the sequence along the engines.

1,3,4,1,2

It had been a long jump from 2139 to 1939.

He’d got as far as 2019 before the device failed.

The tech wouldn’t be invented for 20 years.

It was going to be a long wait.

Peter’s photo is once again the inspiration for this story. I hope he won’t mind me using his name in this story.

My featured image is a detail of Glamis Castle in Scotland.

  1. I am honoured to be mentioned in your tale Graham.
    The plane is a Boeing B17 Flying Fortress, believed to have been made from melted down shell casings during WW2. It was made by a displaced person, nationality unknown, who worked as a farm labourer, alongside my father.
