A straw poll of the office reveals that the superpower we would most like would be the ability to fly.
Since we’re all out of superhero capes, we’ll happily settle for today’s Big Deal on a thrilling helicopter flight and Concorde experience at the Museum of Flight in East Fortune.
A thousand feet high
If everything about flying makes your pulse race then today’s Big Deal will send it into outer space.
Featuring a six mile helicopter flight; entry to the Museum of Flight; tour of Concorde and a cream tea, this offer really will give you wings.
The highpoint is the helicopter trip.
Taking off from East Fortune, passengers will reach for the skies in a Bell 206 Jet Ranger (or its equivalent).
After hovering just above ground, your helicopter will swiftly climb up to 1000 feet. Once at cruising height, you will be able to see all the local landmarks spread out below.
During the six mile circuit, passengers have plenty of opportunities to take pictures so that you can relive the experience again and again.
Upgrade to co-pilot
The offer is for a rear seat in the cabin but, for an extra £10, there is the option to upgrade to the co-pilot experience and sit with the pilot in the cockpit.
Of course, a full safety briefing and public liability insurance are included in the deal.
The experience includes entry to the fascinating Museum of Flight at East Fortune. Part of National Museums Scotland, this brilliant venue tells the history of aviation from the early 20th century to the jet age.
From old bi-planes to Spitfires, Messerschmitts and Vulcans, it holds a stunning collection of aircraft.
One of the jewels in the museum’s crown is the Alpha-Alpha Concorde in Hangar 4.
As part of the experience, you will tour Concorde and find out about the role the aircraft played in breaking the sound barrier; what it was like to be crew member or traveller on the plane and how Alpha-Alpha came to Scotland.
Add in a traditional cream tea at the museum and you have the sort of package which will make you feel sky high.
Great gift idea
With a minimum passenger age of six (under twelves must be accompanied by an adult), this offer would make a brilliant gift for any budding fly boy.
Not that you need to be a youngster to enjoy this offer. The breath-taking panoramas on the helicopter flight; the dozens of planes at the museum and the Concorde tour will appeal to anyone fascinated by the thought of taking to the skies.
If you would like to see a whole new view of East Lothian then pull the chocks away and buckle in for this Big Deal.
