Age 14, 1974, a C130, got to sit in the right seat, feet on the petals and hand on the yoke. Hooked ever since!
Yeah, my early days were plagued with air sickness, more psychological than anything.1st was CH-47 Chinook Helicopter -- It was when I was in the Reserves - Borden, 1984 if memory serves me.
2nd was also with the reserves -- flew out of Trenton up to Sudbury in a Hercules, I think in 85, all a little blurry now. I do remember it was a bumpy ride and was hard to hold down the stomach - lots of guys were chucking their cookies that day which made it harder to hold down ones own. I was glad they bused us back on the return trip.
