What’s the shortest flight you’ve ever been on? Did you feel weird? I know I feel like that each time I am on a flight that only takes an hour, but now I know there are much shorter flights. If I wanted to travel from the island of Westray to the island of Papa Westray in Scotland, I would probably hop on this commercial flight that covers the 1.7 miles that separate the two islands. As they explain on the above video, by Great Big Story, it’s cheaper than building a bridge.
