Flying Isn't What It Used To Be...

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Perhaps my comment was little vague for you young'uns. The 70's were a particularly bad time for plane hijackings. Wiki counts 42! Including perhaps the most (in) famous hijacking of all time which came to a conclusion at Entebbe airport, in Uganda, which was under Idi Amin's control at the time. He (almost) made Pol Pot look like a nice guy.

As a kid in the early 1960s, I flew to England for the first time. My parents took separate flights.

People wore suits, free cigarettes, nuts, toys.

"Fly me to Cuba" hijackers. Now there are charters. :hattip:
