    My first flight was in a Chinook chopper during a test flight that my old man had got me onto as a kid.

    As this is planes though, first flight for me was when we went Aberdeen to Torquay Paignton. Not sure where we landed though.

    Up in the air, then back down again to the same landing strip it took off from, somewhere in rural Saskatchewan. Can't remember the name of the "airport". More of a dirt and grass strip and a windsock, with no "terminal". They are quite common on the prairies.

    That did suck, and I had to collect my luggage and check in again at every stop.

    Joe90, no medication other than booze.

    Froze my bollocks off in Milan as it was snowing and baltic even in the airport. was glad to pick up my bag there and get some warmer gear on.

    I was so impressed with the atmosphere in Riga airport that I promised I would go back there when I get a chance to visit the City.

    Round and round some air force base in the rear of a transport aircraft with the ramp down and open. When I was in Air Cadets.

    ^ I recall being much amused by lots of guys in my jump school class - who had never flown, and took off in a plane five times without ever landing in one.
