Title Sails for Church and State
Description We had barely settled into our seats when the intercom on the aircraft came to life. Ladies and gentleman, welcome to Sesquicentennial Flight 1997. 1 am your captain Stephen Young We are presently cruising at 530 knots at our assigned altitude of 34,000 feet As you know this flight will retrace the exact route of the large company of emigrants who came to Utah from several Scandinavian countries in 1868 under the able leadership of Hans Jensen and several other Sanpete missionaries. We will fly non-stop to New York City going directly across North Plane, Nebraska, and Benton, Iowa, which were two important departure points for these emigrants. Remember, these pioneers were traveling by oxen and wagon over this vast plains area As we cover the area from Chicago to Detroit and on to New York, please note that they traveled by train. What a wonderful treat this must have been for them after the long ocean voyage We will refuel the aircraft at New York City and will be on the ground for about an hour The second leg of our flight will span the Atlantic ocean to Liverpool, England, where we will again land and refuel. Our final stretch will be from Liverpool to Copenhagen The aircraft is equipped with many safety devices and radar will be tracking us every single mile. So please do not be concerned about your safety. For your convenience the aircraft has in-flight movies, study/reading areas and other forms of entertainment. Meals and snacks will be served regularly on our trip. If you need any help please contact one of our flight attendants. Our trip will cover approximately 7000 miles and we will be flying about thirteen hours, and remember that each mile we cover, every single one, was also covered by those brave people many years ago under very hard conditions 82
