I was 3 years old at the time. All I remember is boarding the plane at night from stairs and my Dad carrying me up while I cried my eyes out because I was so scared. Ever since then I've been into aviation.
For me it was an AIR FRANCE B747-200 in 1979 with my mom and brother (we were sitted next to door 3L and I was afraid it opened during the flight) from FDF to Paris, then an AIR INTER Mercure jet from Paris to Lyon the following day.
The Air france flight was called AF vancances (holyday flight) and you had to pick up a bag with the dinner and breakfeast before boarding the plane. There was only drink service on board, and no movie, no blanket.
For me it was a Scandinavian Airlines Caravelle from Stockholm to Copenhagen, followed by a DC-8-62 from Copenhagen to LAX. The Year was 1971, it was summer and I was only 8 months old, carried in the arms of my father's.
hi, that was an CSA TU-134, from Berlin Schönefeld to Prague...i was 9 and the flight was birthdaypresent, from Prague back to Berlin with an INTERFLUG IL-18 ...an unforgetable experience!
In the early seventies on the RNLAF Open Day at AFB Gilze Rijen (NL) I had the opportunity to sit in a Air Force trainer Fokker S-11 (not flying).
My first flight (togther with my 2 sisters) was in May 1972 on a Cessna 172, the PH-KRI. This aircraft with this registration is still in service and is the oldest flying Cessna 172 in the Netherlands.
ILS I am about 90 days older then you!
Born July 25th 1985
When I was 1 year old I flew in a Cessna C-50 tail dragger I believe and then about 7 months later and old bi-plane and when I was 8ish an IL-96 which only had about 10 flights under it with AEROFLOP!
Then a DC-9 NWA,757 and too mant to list after that...
for me, my first flight was in July, 1973. I was 7 years old and my Uncle took me and my brothers to Boston for a day trip. We were on an Eastern Airlines DC-9, it was either a -10 or -15...I know it was a short one...from Newark to Boston early morning. We came home that afternoon on a 727-100...I will never forget it.
Midway 737-200 from TPA-MDW. I think it was around 1984 or so, i was about 6ish. I remember the water of Tampa Bay as we took off to the south, and i remember the houses that passed beneath us (my aunts house was down there) on a cloudy approach into Midway.
