Good lord, some of you are as old as dust!!
Just kidding...with age comes infinite and respectable wisdom. Makes me feel so much better though about my first ever flight being aboard a BA
Viscount (sound familiar?!) LHR
in August 1979. Such huge windows, and a great flight, even if the takeoff was a little "shallow"! I have no idea when the aircraft was built, but the fact that I flew it in 1979 implies that it was pretty ancient, even then!
Infact, it probably wasn't even as old as the Air UK HP
Herald that replaced the dear old Viscount in 1980 on the very same LHR
route. God, those things were ANCIENT, and certainly showed it!
