No Longer Just A Lurker!

Sun Nov 27, 2005 8:54 am

Thanks to all of you who have made this website one of my most enjoyable forms of entertainment over the past couple of years.
I worked in the airline industry for most of my career (ages 19 to 48). I started in London in 1969 with APSA Peruvian Airlines as an Office Messenger. Later, in 1970 with Finnair in Jyvaskyla, Central Finland as a Cargo Officer. I then transferred to AMS at SPL as Traffic Officer until 1975, when I returned to my home of Vancouver. I then worked for Western Airlines/Delta Air Lines from 1975 until 1998, when Delta pulled out of Vancouver. At that time I chose to end my airline career, without regret, as I personally feel grateful that I worked in the industry during the best and most exciting times in my lifespan.
I shall continue to enjoy and promote this website, and hope that all will find my future contributions in these forums to be of interest and enjoyment. I love to reminisce especially about equipment types and configurations we flew at the time I worked for AY. These were the most memorable years of my entire life, and I will be eternally grateful to AY and all their emloyees including ground staff, flight crews and management for making this so.
Thanks again,
AY104 (this was the flt no. of our HEL-AMS/CPH-JFK flown with DC8-62 Combi during my most memorable years with Finnair)

Welcome to airliners.net; Wow didn't know that Delta stopped flying to Vancouver.
Airliners.net is certainly addictive.
Why fly non stop when you can connect

I almost feel bad doing this to a n00b.. But if you don't get them early they will never learn.
