On a lighter, yet somehow more significant note :

It was a salutary experience. It wasn't me they wanted to meet, but Paddington. Often, when conversation flagged and it was suggested that I might like to go back to my seat, he remained behind, strapped into the bucket seat with a map.

Towards the end of one flight a note was handed to me. "Could Paddington stay up here? He wants to land the plane." I didn't tell the other passengers, although I made sure my own seatbelt was securely fastened.,3605,917006,00.html
