A total of 175 Sussex Life readers and Bang & Olufsen customers got a bird’s eye view of Brighton, 450ft above the city, courtesy of British Airways i360
Despite the November afternoon’s stormy weather the clouds parted when the pod left its landing bay to give uninterrupted views across the city and along the south coast.
Earlier that afternoon the passengers on the exclusive flight were treated to a cream tea at the Hilton Brighton Metropole, accompanied by a Bang & Olufson goodie bag, prize draw and a brief introduction to the audio-visual specialist’s latest products.
To win a place on the flight readers had to know that the British Airways i360 took two years to build.
