Thank you Michael Dresser for the stroll down Baltimore aviation's memory lane ("Airport born as Friendship marks 60 years," June 24). In the early 1960s a Sunday afternoon was extra special when my family would pile into the station wagon for a trip to Friendship. Standing on the paver-tiled observation deck I remember being thrilled at the very first plane I ever saw without propellers. I was in awe of the new-fangled jet airliners.
These days while air travel has not only become de rigueur but also a major hassle, those field trips the to the airport remain a fond childhood memory.
