We’ve had a good bit of discussion here in the past day or so over one of Angela Fag-Ash Disney’s posts, in which she claims she was at Dublin Airport en route home from Lanzarote yesterday.
First, there’s the issue of timing
The one flight from Lanzarote that day was scheduled to arrive at 3:15 p.m. Actual arrival time: 3:11.
However, here’s the online photo data from that shot:
As Inchambers@acourtnearyou says, the photo was altered at 12:30 p.m., and uploaded to Facebook at 14:52 p.m…..19 minutes before the Ryanair flight from Lanzarote landed.
So Angie has the astonishing ability to be both in the plane and on the ground simultaneously…no wonder Belinda wanted her for her crack team of Hoaxtead promoters!
Then there’s the issue of the weather
Doesn’t Angie look nice, all dressed up in a pretty summer dress with a light cardigan? The sun is shining, the flowers are blooming…she’s waving and smiling….
But wait! Was the sun really shining in Dublin yesterday?
We asked a couple of our commenters what the weather was like, and the response came back: “very cold and wet”. In fact, one of our commenters said they had been “well padded up” before they went out.
This weather calendar for Dublin bears them out:
Ah well, perhaps the sun follows Angie about, and shines only on her.
And Angie’s dress…
Does anyone recognise this outfit, which Angela wore last May when she was interviewed by Miles Johnston for his ‘Bases 43’ videos?
Slap on a magenta cardi, and voilà! Dublin Airport Angie!
Not to mention the flowers
Would it surprise you to know that some of our team members are avid gardeners? And according to them, the flowers behind Angela in the photo are hyacinths, primroses, and a couple of immature tulips.
The question is, would the hyacinths be in full bloom in Dublin in early April?
According to our gardener, Dublin and London are in two different climate zones, with spring flowers in Dublin blooming at least a couple of weeks after those in London.
If you’ve been out and about in London lately—say, in Hyde Park—you’ll have seen that some of the beds of hyacinths and primroses are just coming into bloom now.
Here’s the information for that photo:
So to wrap up, Angela is sitting at Dublin Airport 20 minutes before her plane landed, on a bright sunny day when it’s raining and cold for everyone else, amidst a bunch of pretty spring flowers that won’t be blooming in that part of the world for another couple of weeks.
Almost too amazing to be true, isn’t it?
