I was priviledged as a child to have the opportunity to travel in airplanes. From some of the very first 747 trips across the Atlantic to twelve seat "puddle jumpers" in the Carribbean, I saw flight through the eyes of a child as well as a paranoid adult.
Bumps and dips in the air were amusements as a child. But maybe more influencial was how children and air travel were treated back in the early 70s.
Gotta get on an airplane to San Juan right now. Will finish this later.
