Random memory: plane to Berlin

I remember how my father and I took a plane home from London to Hamburg.

It didn't end in Hamburg but continued on to Berlin.

Unfortunately, I forgot a book in the seat pocket in front of me, so the book flew on to Berlin without me :(

Two slightly unusual things about the flight:

  1. It was a Pan Am flight, so a flight with an airline that doesn't exist any more (TTBOMK).
  2. It was before the fall of the Berlin Wall, during a time where (as I understand it) German airlines were not allowed to fly into Berlin. So I can imagine that this intra-European flight served not only passengers from London, but also Germans wishing to fly into Berlin from Hamburg.
