Half-a-Century ago

Postby emfrat » Sat Sep 29, 2018 7:54 pm

About this time of day, I was arriving at Euston, on my way to LHR for an evening flight to SYD. It was a BOAC 707 and it stopped at every lamp-post. As I recall, it went Heathrow-Zurich-Teheran-Karachi-New Delhi-Bombay- Rangoon (or mebbe Bangkok)- Hong Kong-Manila-Sydney. Pretty good for 10 quid :)
