Time Travel - the only way to do it

Heading for the Departure Lounge on the escalator - I'm the third person up, the one in the long coat. From the moment I arrived at the airport, heads were turning. When we got on the plane, the stewardess that welcomed us onboard wanted to know why I was dressed as a Georgian. I found it quite amusing that whilst I enlightened her with my excitement of the coming event in Bath, other passengers were getting wet as they queued behind me to get on the plane.

I wonder what Jane Austen would have made of this flying business.
