This summer vacation in 2000 started with a flight from San Francisco to Memphis, and on to Orlando.
It was no ordinary flight . . . .
Here's a cabin crew to give you pause!
And if that's not enough, here's the pilot!
Not to forget the co-pilot, on the left!
On to Florida.
We all want to thank Northwest Airlines, and the pilot of their flight from San Francisco to Memphis in the morning of August 15, 2000, for inviting the kids into the cockpit and daring to let them sit there! That gesture gave the Florida vacation a great start.
August is not exactly high season in Florida. One reason is that it's the hurricane season, which interested our group. Another is that it can be stifling and hot, which again did not give us pause. Some like it hot. But what tilted the balance, apart from our need to fit vacations into the kids' school holidays, was the low air fares relative to flying to Europe. Imagine paying for eight tickets when you get on a plane!!That was just one vacation. Others have taken us to Disneyland, Yosemite, Saint Mâlo, Brocéliande, Marlow, New York City and Vancouver. We just love vacations!!
