First flight the Chipmunk AEF at RAF Woodvale.

Glider Sedbergh RAF Burtonwood.

BAC111 Gatwick to RAF Wildenrath and back

Wessex Whirlwind along the West/East german border

Laterly Manchester to Dublin Air lingus Boeing 737-500

I must admit I am not a good air traveller.

I missed out on a trip in a Jet provost trainer at RAF Linton on Ouse after smacking my knee at summer camp.

I could not go flying because the people who were supposed to be doing the atc weren't coming in surly the ATC/RAF are more organised than that?
