Exciting for a 13 y.o.
For a kid at that age, the whole experience was exciting. The entertainment included watching the view through the window, flight controls, and pilots doing their job. There were no snacks or meals, or flight attendants. Our tickets were the old red carbon copy coupons, all hand written. One would check in at the gate, walk to the aircraft, show your ticket to the pilot, and hop on. On this day, it was warm outside, and inside the plane. Take off was normal but exciting. Landing is even more exciting, landing at a big airport with big airliners there. Convairs, DC-3, 4, &6's, Connies, and a F27. The staff and crew were very courteous and professional.
