Do you remember the 707 ? Flew to California on a D.C.7 C. Then to Hawaii on a " Connie " . Finished the flight with a very high flying 707 to Perth . Gees , what a bird . First passenger jet I ever flew on . I won't go into my experience with a 747 , but it weren't nice . Flew L-1011 and also a 727 . Nice birds those .
I must say though . I prefer those with the whirly thingys on the engine front so you can see them working . Slower flight yes ! Like trains , I like the time I have to relax . T.B.
