TJB has a go at not crashing a plane

My birthday was the other day, so as a present to myself I got to fly one of these.

It was a load of fun, and I'm now thinking of saving up and training to get a pilot's license when I get home.

This was somewhere during 2002. But man have they really changed the livery of the aircraft. Dad keeps nagging on about how we spent a lot for that flight back then, too bad I'm not old enough to remember it though I would have loved to. Apparently I called the pilot a wuss and he then did an aileron roll, despite my dad telling him not to.... :biggrin:

Definitely true. I think in total it worked out to about 65 hours of wages from my old job. Worth it though.
Also it seems pretty crazy that we were both at the same place, there has to be at least a few places like that around the world.

Thanks all for the birthday wishes!
