    at check-in on a Precision Airlines commuter flight between Lebanon, NH, and Boston.  And that was in something like 1982.  I don't remember the aircraft other than to say that it was configured 2-1 and had seat backs that only came up to the top of my shoulder blades - and I'm only 5'10".  Coming back, we had to fly through a thunderstorm that blew up suddenly.  The plane was incapable of getting over it.  Great roller coaster ride!!!  Loved it.
