A classic aircraft with period charm
Growing up, my interest in aircraft and flying was largely influenced by events in my life. A trip to the flight deck on my first-ever flight made me fall in love with the view. A steady stream of late 1970s airline disaster flicks kept my curious mind busy as the on-screen action entertained me. And a trip to the cinema to see Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom also left a big impression on me. While my sister suffered nightmares about the wonderfully entitled ‘snake surprise’, I was more concerned with the aircraft I'd seen at the start of the movie.
