"Orient Express here, reporting to you, ‘live’, from
downtown Wuxi China Expatdom. The skies above
are filled with the largest-ever aerial armada in all
"This magnificent display of air-force might, some
800,000 aircraft, is merely a fraction of the Expatdom’s
fleet – 328 squadrons of every warplane that has ever
flown, is being flown, and will be flown in the future.
"This flyover commenced almost three hours ago, and
will continue for the next eight hours. Let me assure you,
the noise of these planes makes normal conversations
impossible – Expats are writing notes to each other.
As I made my way through the streets, Expats were staring
up, wide-eyed and open-mouthed, in fact, with all orifices open.
"I’m now on the Palm Court Terrace, atop Gambays, where
Gorzo the Mighty, PM Mango, and senior Expatdom officials
have a superb view of this, this, ….., I’m sorry, I’ve no words
to adequately describe what we are witnessing here at the moment.
"PM Mango said that this flyover is just the curtain-raiser for tomorrow,
when the Expatdom’s Air Marshal will be formally commissioned.
PM Mango said that an expected crowd of at least 2.8 billion Expats
will assemble at the WCE’s Binhu Air Force Base at 1400 hours tomorrow,
when the ceremony will begin.
"But both Gorzo The Mighty and PM Mango are remaining tight-lipped
as to the actual identity of the new WCEAF supremo, so we’ll all have to wait until
then to find out who the intrepid birdman is.
"About half an hour ago, up here on Gambays’ rooftop, PM Mango
suddenly exclaimed to Gorzo The Mighty "Look! Down there on the street –
Hans Klingner, and Kennesaw ‘Hui Shan’ Landis, are prostating (sic) themselves!!"."
"And in the 1912 Bar District, Expat patrons are all outside, watching this unprecedented,
magnificent spectacle. Some of those Expats even got up off their bar-stools,
for the first time since the Big Bang.
"Tomorrow I’ll be joining with the world’s – and the inter-galactic, media representives
for what promises to be a momentuous event in the history of the Expatdom."
