These are some of the reactions to Earth Festival events
ONBOARD - JURASSIC AIRLINES
I liked best: the pilot getting chased, being attacked, being in an aeroplane going back through time, being underwater, the attention to detail, the stewardess, check-in, security and the humiliascan, commentary, comfortable seats, dinosaurs, it was very funny, lots of information, good family fun, take-off, shoal of ammonites, great landslip, realistic, large sea animals, motion and reality, just fab, all of it, it was my first flight!
I learnt about: climate change, rising sea levels and deserts, Pangea, time travel, layers of rock and how they have tiped, the round pebbles at Budleigh Salterton are radio-active, trees give us oxygen, pliosaurs were huge, that this area all used to be sea, that southern England was once desert, that pterodactyls were harmless, extinction.
