Santa launches in just two hours and he is refusing the arguments of experts who claim he will regret flying a 50-year-old sleigh tonight. Santa is insisting on using the vintage sleigh and nothing will change his mind.
He also has refused to delay launch.
All departments at the North Pole are scrambling at this hour to adjust to this change of sleigh. For teams from the Wrapping Department and the Department of Distribution it should not be a big adjustment as this old sleigh is considerably larger than what Santa was originally going to fly.
But flight planners are going nuts trying to figure out just how fast this sleigh can go and if Santa can control it in extreme conditions.
Santa has logged a lot of flight time in this sleigh over the years and insists there is nothing wrong with flying this sleigh tonight.
