My first flight experience, (This is my first memorable flight)…It was a nice summer day of 2009. I was 5 years old and It was going to be my first International Flight. I remember I was flying a Continental 737-800 from ANU to EWR. It was my first time flying the iconic 737. I was travelling with my Mom, Dad, and Older Sister. I was sitting in the window seat. Next to my dad who is also a major avgeek (It kinda runs in the family). On Takeoff, I remember being the small child I was, fly back all the way into my seat (Yes I had the seatbelt on, I was just stretching to see the wing.) We had a steady climb, but I felt like My insides were becoming my outsides because it was also my first time on a turbofan. We had a very enjoyable cruise, but I cant remember that much of it. Finally, our descent into Newark started and fear kicked down my brains door yelling “WERE GONNA CRASH!” I didn’t say it out loud because my dad didn’t seem concerned about anything, and I trusted my dad a lot so I sat in my seat pale as if I saw a ghost (As to what my dad tells me). My fear knocked me out for most of our descent until we were on final. But my fear was instantly driven away by my curiosity to why the Flaps were moving and why I am seeing cars and houses. We eventually touched down. The Pilots Buttering the Bread, but the reversers kicked in then I felt like I was being thrown around like a toddlers rag doll, with my seatbelt preventing me from faceplanting into the chair ahead of me.
I was totally impressed by this flight and would definitely do it again.
If we are talking about our very first flights…Then I would consider it to be EGLL to TAPA on a Virgin Atlantic B747-400. I was about 6 months in the womb. I was definitely alive so it was my unofficial first flight.
