Hello Everyone and welcome to this special and old old report!
This report is special to me as I think this was my second flight on my own, and happened when I was a teenager to visit an old friend of mine that was studying in Scotland.
I can't remember how much we paid, all I remember is that I bought online for the first time!
It really felt like new technology, I wasn't even sure that the booking was real!!
I will try to find the boarding pass and booking documents I am sure that I put it somewhere.
I left you at what was - I think - the old terminal 2.
I am going to show you another ghost from the past: the terminal 1 and its old tunnels.
You can still see them on google maps: on top the new T2
bottom left is the old T1 building still visible
bottom right is the old tunnels part of T1 that you can still see to this day
At my "tunnel" gate
Aircraft: Boeing B767-336ER
Engines: 2x RR RB211
Age: XXXX Years
I didn't take any pictures of my plane but looking at the wings, it looks like it was a B767-300.
This was the golden era of aviation where long haul aircrafts where used even on domestic routes!
Look at the BMI tail… BMI was a direct competitor of BA for those of us that weren't around at the time :)
push back and aligning onto 27L
and take off!
Look the T4 (now used as a Skyteam based mostly) was the international hub for BA and friends (look at the B747 Qantas)
I do remember some lound and worrying noise coming from the back as the plane rotated… Maybe some freight not attached properly? A tail strike?
Reaching the clouds…
And getting through them
You wanted to look at the engines? there you go!
And the sun on my face - always a good idea for october!
What a view! I will always remember this beautiful feeling of freedom above the sea of clouds… And made a promess to myself to keep flying a as much as possible in my life.
Another view of the engine…
Something tells me it was quite cold outside…!
We landed and turned around at the end of the runway - a first for me
A few pictures of glasgow
and the surrounding islands
all very green isnt'it?
I can't really appreciate and judge such an old flight, and especially with nowadays standards and criteria.
I left it at 7,5 for every mark. But this flight is still vivid as it was the firt time i was booking a flight with my money on my own!
