First time on a plane..

Where did you go?

My first flight was to Naples.

It was a very steep decent & poor Tony had ear problems for days afterwards.

I was ten, and going to Bulgaria. I enjoyed the plane there and back more than the holiday itself!

Re: First time on a plane..

For me as an 8 year old flying to Aden with my family as dad was given a 2 year posting . The plane was very noisy and the air hostess gave us barely sugar sweets to suck . I think it took 2 or 3 days flying and landing to get there . We also had paper sick bags as we were all sick .

Never flown in a plane, ever. Don't want to either.
Does walking onto Concorde count, she wasn't going anywhere she was grounded.

That must have been quite an experience though? Did you get shown around and things?

Wonder why? The fear of being in the air?

Possibly but maybe not, I am the same and it's not a fear being in the air. Not having a passport means I probably never can fly in a plane.

Although I wouldn't mind a flight in a helicopter!
