Regardless, it was still a memorable 2 hrs. It remains the only time I’ve walked out onto the tarmac in order to board my plane.

I was on my way to Vancouver, one of my favorite cities on the planet. Did not realize that my connecting flight (SF to VAN) was going to be a dinky little 15-20 seat plane, one of those small ones where the propellers are just out in the open. Even more surprised when they brought us outside to board. It was pretty cool.

I had one of them from Edinburgh to Birmingham. You could see the props and we were literally in the air just long enough for the attendant to serve beverages.

Having new experiences with planes was one thing I really loved about travelling up north! Dirt runways and Twin Otters. I also had the opportunity to fly in a cargo plane (C-130 Hercules like the US Coast Guard uses) and to visit the crew in the cockpit during flight. “Carpooling” home from work with space researchers has its benefits :star_struck:


#27

I’m from Texas and I’ve been to Oklahoma, Kentucky, Virginia, Indiana

I want to visit the world!! :smirk:


#28

I really liked those two cities you mentioned.

Edinburgh was absolutely tremendous. Top 5 city, for me.

Birmingham was way better than I thought it would be. I was expecting a machinery-filled industrial hell, based on media portrayal, etc. It was actually a wonderful place!


#29

The Herc’s a bit noisy. I had a 13 hour flight from Ascension Island to the Falklands. Did get to see in-flight refuelling.

#36

C-130 very noisy and cold. Flown in them too many times to count. Longest was Okinawa to Australia with a stop-over in Guam.


#37

We studied the campaign in detail at Amphibious Warfare school. I wrote a paper on it comparing and contrasting the operation with the USMC operations on Guadalcanal. Both were cobbled together and run on a shoestring with tenuous logistics, lack of Naval or air superiority and success was achieved through the tenacity of the troops.


#38

I’ve lived in California, Georgia, and Tennessee in the US. Currently living in TN. I also lived in Vancouver, British Columbia for about 6 months. I’ve seen about 40 of the 50 United States. I’ve driven across the US from corner to corner about 4 times. I’ve been to France and Switzerland. I had a pen pal in Ireland for a few years and always wished I could go out there. I would love to see Iceland too and see the Northern Lights. Japan is on the bucket list and Costa Rica.
