The aircraft I had my first flight in 1951 taking of from the wooden buildings at Heathrow over and around the London Exhibition and back. I distinctly remember the wicker chairs that the Rapide had. Thanks for the reminder.

Remember them well - particularly the Whitley/Prince combo - I see that Guy came down from the other end to give me my IRT towards the end of the course. A great aircraft as well - and I'm 6ft 21/2 !!RegardsJohn R
