In the midst of emptying two houses – our own and my parents’ – my mum came across some British Airways memorabilia, including my first flight details, in my British Airways Junior Jet Set Club passenger log book from way back in 1977, featuring BA Captain Leo Budd.

A few weeks later, at the bottom of a box I was just about to throw away, a glint caught my eye and I found some more airline flight memorabilia – my Junior Jet Club enamelled British Airways badge. I have also come across my old suitcase, inside which was a British Airways baby bus. 

No wonder I’ve always loved flying, this baby’s first flight was at nine weeks old. Looks like my wanderlust started in nappies!

It’s actually strange that I love flying so much really. I don’t remember anything of most airports, but I do remember I always used to be sick on the plane. The smell of fuel whilst sat on the tarmac always used to make me feel massively nauseous. I still don’t like the smell now. However, the love of visiting new places was obviously instilled from an early age, and that love is enough to overcome any bad smell!

What a lovely blast from the past it’s been for me and for my mum, finding her (not so little anymore) baby’s first flight records and seeing where my first flight adventure took me.

Shall let the pictures of my first flight memorabilia speak for themselves, but it would be good to get any further information about the British Airways flights and pilots. If anyone from British Airways, who worked back in the ’70s and early ’80s, is reading this, please email us at: familylandadventures@gmail.com or comment below. 🙂

    I have my 25,000 mile certificate framed in my office! Also signed by Captain Budd. Mine would have been signed in the mid to late 70s.
