Queen Elizabeth II passed away on Thursday, sending many into mourning. Fellow Boarding Area blogger Matthew Klint noted several of her family members rode a Royal Air Force Dassault Falcon 900LX to Scotland earlier in the day.
To put Queen Elizabeth’s 96 years in aviation perspective: She was born before the first transatlantic nonstop flight, began her reign before the first commercial jet flight, witnessed the birth of supersonic and jumbo jets and is honored with Queen’s Terminal at London/Heathrow.
Interesting, isn’t it?
(For those of us with family members turning 97 or older sooner: thank you, Joe, for this wonderful tidbit. This will come in handy for birthday party speeches.)
