Duncan in Gibraltar
To walk from the Spanish border to the Rock of Gibraltar it is necessary to cross Gibraltar’s active runway.
As I walked into Gibraltar, a sudden wind off the Mediterranean blew my Hat off. I know, I should have been using the chin strap. As I chased for the hat, a 737 was on final approach to the runway. Driven by adrenaline, I was able to chase and retrieve my Hat halfway down the runway as the 737 was touching down at the end of it.
Hats and people survive the craziest things.
