I don't remember mine either.

It was sometime in the summer of 1972 from Japan to the US (Washington DC). I was one year old.

December 1980, Los Angeles. I was 10 yo. and the only thing that was playing on the headset for air travel was Michael Jackson's "Off The Wall." It played over and over again for the 5 hour flight. Through out the trip in LA I kept singing "I'm Gonna Rock With You." It drove my parents nuts!

Decades ago my parents lived in an oil camp in Venezuela. When my mother was ready to deliver she traveled back to her parents home just outside of Boston until delivery. I was born in Cambridge (MA) and when I was 6 weeks old I flew from Boston back to Caracas, Venezula and then we flew on a company plane from Caracas to the oil camp, San Tome.

1975, I was 14. Flew Toronto to Frankfurt. Miserable flight - they had smoking sections back then. We were two rows from the smoking section, in the supposed non-smoking section. Air's dry enough in a plane, add cigarette smoke - my eyes & throat burned for two days afterwards and I felt like crap. Kinda took the shine off the excitement of my first flight and dreaded the flight back.

I don't remember exactly how old I was, but I must have been around 7 or 8. My first airplane ride was from Los Angeles, California to Phoenix, Arizona to visit relatives.

From Dallas Love Field to Las Vegas in 1968 (I was 10) - I'm glad I got to see it back then - Ceasar's Palace was alone down the strip in the desert.

Then we flew to LA and saw Hollywood!
