Hardly any of my friends know that I am interested in aviation. Those who do don't laugh at me. There's nothing wrong with being into aviation: everyone is interested in something else. And I intend to pursue a career in aviation, too (not a pilot or steward but my dream job is an airport/airline manager). Well, too bad, if anyone laughs at me, I'm sure to laugh at their own hobbies.
Unlike Iain, I have never taken a girl to the airport, partly because I'm 15 and have no way of driving her to Malta Int. I agree that it might be a good 'hunting' strategy
. As for Xewkija Heliport, I think hardly any local girl would be impressed by me taking her to the minute terminal to watch the noisy old Mi-8s!
Keep up your interest in aviation BA777!
