My First F100 flight.....

Well this weekend I'm off to Amsterdam on what will be my first F100 flight. Naturally, I'm looking forward to it and can't wait. I've flew the F70 before with British Midland (Newcastle to Malaga in '97) which I guess will be a similar experience to this. I've also flew the F50 before with KLM and SAS but thats obviously a completely different aircraft.

I'll let you know next week what I think of the aircraft.

I don't know if any of you will be interested, but whilst I have the file open, I thought I'd copy in all the flights I've been on in my time. Feel free to ignore if you don't find it interesting....;)

I wish I kept track of all my flights, unfortunately, I don't. Even though, I have all the boarding passes lying around both mine and my mom's house somewhere. This year, so far, I've flown a tad over 27,000 miles. I've flown 50,000 plus each of the last 2 years, 42,000 and change in 2000, and roughly 25,000 in '99.

Here are a few flights that I am glad I took while it was still possible :-

1984 British Airways Trident Heathrow - Manchester and return

1985 Olympic 707 Rhodes - Athens

1986 CTA Caravelle Gatwick - Zurich and return

1986 British Midland Viscount 1hr pleasure flight from East Midlands

1986 Euroair Herald 1hr pleasure flight from Gatwick , including taking part in the Badminton Airday airshow !

I do regret not starting my interest in aviation early enough to fly in a Comet or a VC10 , though.
