When was the firsttime you flew the DC-10? What airline was it on? From where to where?
I remember it like it was yesterday. I was flying TWA from Hartford to St. Louis. We left HAR in the morning. I was just a kid then. I remember we went to the Admirals Club before the flight. The agent gave me a deck of cards! (When's the last time THAT happened!?)
We were sitting in coach, but back then their was lots more legroom. The seating at the time was 2-3-3. For breakfast I had pancakes and sausage. The stewardess even came by and gave me a little activity pack!
In addition to TWA, BN also had a hub at STL. They flew mostly DC-9's. It was a different world then!

My first Int'l,widebody,movies flight - Delta L1011 CVG-ZRH July '95 . I can still remember seeing all those L's lined up @ CVG going to Paris,Rome,London,Zurich. I was never on a widebody before. I even remember that the movie was 'Outbreak' and there were free drinks!
I just wish I got the reg #'s. I remember that I was a little peeved that we weren't on a MD-11.

Along the same vein, Zrs70 did you ever have the chance to have your first flights on the
the Lockheed Coronado
the DeHavilland Caravelle
the Vickers Electra and of course how can we forget
the Boeing VC-10
Why didn't Douglas think of the Tristar name first?

My first DC-10 flight was when I was about 4(ORD-LAS). I actually got wings from the Pilot and got to see the cockpit. I wore my little sailor suit and all the flight attendants were saying how cute I was!!!!!!
