Flown 2 DC-3s of 1944 (of Dutch Dakota Association and Era Classic), a Constellation of 1946 (Connie group), a Grumman Mallard of 1947. My oldest jet was a 1960 Boeing 720B of MEA in 1995.
Flight152> Most USAir 737-200s are from the early to mid 80s, sure you never flew a DC-9 or 727, these must be older.
BWIA > Their MD-80s are built in the mid 80s. The YS 11 (built in the 60s to 1973) must be older.
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

Air Canada Boeing 707 the first time I flew transatlantic in 1982 LHR-YYC. I was 10 at the time, and it was great fun. The return trip from YYZ-LHR was on a L1011. However having been on widebodies plenty of times since, I wonder how great the outbound trip actually was!

I rode on a Ford 5-AT in 1985. My wife was very mad at me when i told her too. She didn'y like the fact that I took our daughter on such an old airplane. But how many 20 year olds can say they rode on a Ford airplane?
Is grammar no longer taught is schools? Saying "me and her" or some such implies illiteracy.
