BAC One Eleven Trip (DAL) - Any Reports?

Mon Sep 19, 2011 2:47 pm

Hi all,

Unfortunately the "Flying on Classic Aircraft" thread has now been archived, so I didn't get to post on that one, but I wanted to ask how the BAC One Eleven trip went in DAL? I would love to get on one of those classic aircraft flights at some point, so any comments or reviews of the trip would be great to read!

Most Flown:- G-BUVA (20 Flights), EI-DEB (12 Flights), EI-JFK (11 Flights)

It was an excellent trip, the guys and girls at the FBO were really welcoming and the crew on board treated us very well with champagne and an open cockpit, plus a flypast before landing back at DAL. The route too was well planned to take us over a canyon, during which the pilots descended to give us a closer look - I'm sure a few people on remote Texas ranches wondered why there was this noisy jet flying low over the countryside! I was surprised that the majority of participants were from the UK, I thought there would be a contingent, but not almost everybody on board. I do of course have lots of pictures and videos, and I do intend on posting a report at some point, but right now I'm too busy with work and in a week and a bit I'm heading back to study. But, I'll try and put something together if nobody else has soon.

Of course we all have to thank Sean of classic Jet Tours a lot for putting this trip together. A few hefty hints were dropped that we'd like his next task to be getting a DC-8 flight organised...
