My mum's step sister's husband was Air Commodore and he showed us round
can't remember anything about it :(
My dad's friend once flew me and my dad from Newcastle to Dundee in his private plane when I was about 9. Why Dundee, I have no idea. Was cool though, I used to love planes back then.
I've flown one of these: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grob_Tutor
Well, for like 5 mins and not take off or landing obviously. But I did get to do a loop.

We got to press buttons. OMG.
she's studying engineering of airplanes or something, always forget.
but i've seen a grown man naked.
which taught me the basics of flying fighters. I sat in this massive cockpit mounted high up on this huge load of wires and pipes and stuff and it was pretty scary/good.
we had to do CCF at school and I was in the RAF. Can't remember what plane it was but I went in a 2 seater one at RAF Benson (I think) and got to fly it and do aerobatics etc. Was quite fun, had to wear a jumpsuit and one of those helmet/mask things with the microphone. When I went on a school trip to either India or Japan we all got to have a look in the cockpit and when I flew to France on my own again got to see the cockpit, but also was allowed to make an announcement to everybody on the plane.
