I've been there once, about 25 years ago (I was about six years old).
On the way there I drew a picture for the airplane pilot and when I wanted to give it to the flight attendant she said I could give it in person.
To my surprise there were two pilots and the cockpit was more than just a start button and a joystick Laugh | :laugh:
It was a KLM Boeing 747 and the first time I flew, I think.
No way any passenger could now enter the cockpit during flight, but times were different back then Smile | :)
I still have the stuffed animal I got that day (a little bird with a KLM cap).

In Toronto we went to the Niagara Falls and the top of the CN Tower (and I think we had dinner there).
For some reason I remember seeing the city lights from the car for as far as my eyes could see when we went to my uncle's house that evening.

That was also the vacation where I was introduced to the NES and Super Mario.
My older cousin had one and I wanted to play with him, but I didn't speak a word of English so I just pointed at him, then me, and made a gesture as if I held a controller Laugh | :laugh:
We went right before Christmas and when we got back I got a NES under the Christmas tree.
That was the first out of two times I visited them.

Needless to say it was all quite impressive at that age Big Grin | :-D
