The first aircraft I ever got to fly in was a KLM DC-8, reg PH-DCC on April 22nd 1967. I got off the aircraft two days later after six stops in a new country which I still call home.


I remember when the DC-3 was new!

For me it was a BEA Viscount from Heathrow to Gibraltar in the early 1960s! I cannot remember much about the flight as I slept for most of the journey, but I remember Gibraltar Airport very well. At the time it was nothing more than a hanger with a few chairs and counters and many RAF personnel!

Although I cannot remember anything about the trip I am sure that around the same time my father's firm chartered a DanAir Ambassadors for a trip from Gatwick to Palma and I was a passenger on this aircraft. I have searched records and cannot find out if DanAir (or DanDare as we often called it) ever had an Ambassador fleet.

In about 1963 I flew on a BEA Comet 4B to Rome - Fiumicino (Leonardo was then being constructed!) (Sorry if the spelling is incorrect).
