NAV CANADA has reported that a flight plan for an aircraft departing the North Pole on December 24th, 2009 has been filed with millions of destinations in Canada and around the world. NAV CANADA says it has not handled a flight plan of this size for about a year noting that this breaks the record that was set on December 24-25 2008 by a Mr. K Kringle.
NAV CANADA does not reveal the identity of pilots filing flight plans but an unnamed source confirmed that it is Mr. Kringle. "The paperwork says Kris Kringle, but everyone knows him as Santa Claus," said the NAV CANADA source speaking on the condition of anonymity.
The details are confidential, but NAV CANADA has confirmed that the aircraft will carry a huge cargo of brightly coloured packages and will fly at a tremendous speed guided by a flashing red light at the nose of the craft. "That red light makes the aircraft’s nose so bright. It worked especially well on one foggy Christmas Eve several years back," recalled one air traffic controller.
