Nine sectors 8 May 1982

Just checked back and can claim nine sectors - it would have been eight but for an unserviceable BCAL 1-11 resulting in my GLA-LGW flight dropping into MAN to cover a MAN-LGW service.

LHR-GLA G-AWYZ Trident 3
GLA-INV-KOI-LSI-KOI-INV-GLA G-AOYM Viscount V806
GLA-MAN-LGW G-AYOP Bac 1-11 Series 530

What would I give now to enjoy a flight again on those three aircraft types . plus the VC-10 and Concorde of course!

The Viscount flights marked the last day of operation of a BA Viscount and I can still remember us skimming by the Old Man of Hoy at cliff top height on a beautiful sunny afternoon. It clearly whetted my appetite for last BA flights as since then I have managed the Trident 3 flying MAN-LHR (31 December 1985) when a simultaneous landing with another BA Trident 3 occurred at LHR - officially the MAN-LHR flight landed one second after the AMS-LHR charter flight. Boeing 757 EDI-LHR (30 October 2010). Boeing 737-400 TRN-LGW (30 September 2015) and more recently Boeing 767-300 LCA-LHR (25 November 2018).
