Nice. They’re getting off the plane directly into cars. I was wrong, they had to walk to the main terminal and go through passport control. And here are their drivers who kindle posed for a photo. The film crew came out a few minutes later.
There may have been a bit missing from the Ferris Wheel on The Grand Parade yesterday, but I’m informed that all bits are accounted for now.
