In the late 60s my father was a Vanguard Captain for Air Canada, and I went with him on a trip I'll never forget.
We left Toronto at 8pm or so, and flew YYZ
!!!! Arriving at St. John's Newfoundland around 9am. A trip like that would not be allowed today with duty restrictions as they are, but what I wouldn't give to fly in a Vanguard on a trip like that now!!!
Incidentally, that night, we flew the same route in reverse. Heck of a way to earn a buck. And today I complain about flying an A320 YYZ
during daylight hours!
Just because I stopped arguing, doesn't mean I think you are right. It just means I gave up!
