Barbie is just giddy with anticipation.

The Breathless moment as the main engines (only engine ?) ignite and send the Barbie Express hurtling through both space and time (ever notice that Barbie never ages?)

All goes well and both Barbie and her Express return safely to earth cradled by the generous Garbage Bag parachutes.

A Succesfull Flight! Crew members Alex and Andrew celebrate a safe recovery. Barbie is happy too!
