As ATC Cadet

Chipmunk about a dozen times in the 1960's when Air Experience Flying seems to have been a more frequent and perhaps less safety obsessed practice than in later years.
Hercules on which all up the back end threw up.
Argosy rigged with airline seats to compensate for the former.
SAR Whirlwind.

While Serving With Territorial Army

Hercules , multiple take-offs but only one landing.
Andover ,as above but no landings.
Britannia ,trooping flights to UAE and return which definitely dispelled its alleged 'Whispering Giant' nickname.

Not much Civilian Flying

Trident , office to Edinburgh-London-Edinburgh and then back to the office after making a deposit at HMP Barlinnie in 5 hours without actually setting foot within the terminal at Heathrow.
BAe ATP which rather took the fun out of holiday flying.

Yes both in the same Holiday/Vacation. Back in 2002, went to the States toured around, (usual Disneyland, Universal Studio,Vegas Grand Canyon, Mexico,etc), then to the Oshkosh Airshow, where I had a ride on "Aluminium Overcast", (the B17G), then went to U.K., on Concorde. About 4 months afterwards, they permanently grounded, the Concorde/s.
