Last week was the Jersey International Air Display. I am lucky enough to be able to help out at the airport and therefore also get to get up close to the aircraft if not actually in them. This year we had the 1936 Lufthansa JU.52 fly over to take part in the display. As it is my most favourite plane of all time I just had to go and have a looks. The pilot and crew were more than happy for me have a good look around and insisted I got into the cockpit and generally get to know the old girl. Once in the cockpit the pilot says he's off to the pilots briefing, so help myself take as long as I like and shut the door when I'm finished. So like a cheshire cat I sat up front for quite some time. At the end of the week I even got invited to go for a fly in her..... fantastic for sure. Not too many people have done that in Jersey since 1945 and then they were German soldiers.
She has just been made a German Historic Monument, which means she will have a long and well looked after future.
That was a great experience indeed.
