I need some assistance, and who better to ask than the experts here at a.net?
There was a thread about "Your First Airplane Flight", and I realized I know every plane I've been on except my very first flight. Here are the clues I know from what my mother has told me:
1) We had been in Zion National Park visiting my dad (who was working as a park ranger in the summer), and therefore would have driven into Las Vegas, where my dad's mother lives, and she would have put us on the plane.
2) We made a stop-over in Phoenix on our way back to Ft. Smith, Arkansas (FSM). Mom is very sure of this.
3) It would have been summer of 1971 or 1972. My sister, who my mother remembers carrying on her lap, was very young (and if she was along, it could not have been summer of 1970 or before). I remember distinctly flying at Christmastime in 1974, but nothing before. It could not have been 1973, as that was a memorable summer for other good reasons.
4) I have no memory of this trip at all, and mom does not recall any details other than those mentioned. We could possibly have flown the same airline all the way or we could have switched somewhere else.
Now that you know the details, any good ideas about what possible airlines and airplanes we might have made the trip on?
