50 year anniversary flight

Today I celebrated the 50th anniversary of my first flight in a DC-3/C-47 operated by Silver City Airways.
My family were relocating from Kent to the far north of Scotland when my father got a job in the site architect office at the new UKAEA power station being constructed at Dounreay, Caithness.

We flew from Lydd aerodrome, Kent, stopping for fuel at Prestwick before continuing onto Wick airport.

50 years and a couple of months on, I celebrated the occasion with a flight in G-AMPY operated by Classic Flight/Air Atlantique at Coventry Airport. G-AMPY was wearing her RAF Transport Command livery and her original serial number KK116
