Taychreggan Hotel Presents
An Evening with Captain Bill Hagan
"The Nairobi Incident"
Saturday 15 October
Captain Bill Hagan has now retired after 41 years of commercial flying. He is for the first time in his career free to tell the complete story of the Nairobi Incident of which he was the Captain.
In this 60 minute pre dinner presentation he describes the background to the flight in relevant personal terms, shows and discusses aspects of the extreme loss of control of the aircraft, describes in detail what happened during the terrifying three minutes, what his thoughts were during that time, and how the sequence of those thoughts led to removal of the intruder from the controls. He outlines the many various subsequent events including the emergence of a legal case against BA and its implications, the timetable of the locking of cockpit doors in 2001, and he discusses how the decision was made not to investigate the incident.
Spend time before dinner in the Taychreggan Hotel listening in comfort to this fascinating story, prior to enjoying your magnificent meal, and join him afterwards in the bar for question for a short time.
