McALISTER’S WAY VOLUME 09
FREE Weekly Serialisation - Chapters 16 & 17
A Young Adult Action and Adventure Story for Baby Boomers
I had some fun writing chapter with Monty teasing Angela at every opportunity. I’d never thought about the origins of a Big-Mac but it didn’t take much digging to find out, so I thought I share that information with you in this chapter.
Take-off for float-planes is a lot trickier than land-bases planes. The water surface acts like glue and a huge amount of drag has to be overcome before the plane becomes airborne. It’s like water-skiing — once you’re planing it’s easy to jump above the surface. This chapter introduces Sim Long Li, for whom I have a special affection. Although I nearly went crazy getting his accent right and changing his ‘Rs’ for ‘Ls’.
