Evidence: Air Canada (with Mom, Bob, Dan) 1974

After being birthed in Saskatoon and flight to Calgary to Vancouver at 15 days, living in Eugene, Oregon for first year and some, we moved to Lansing, Michigan where Dad took a professor gig at Michigan State University and brother Dan was born.

Then, changing jobs again to University of British Columbia, we were on the plane again, westway to the world.

Not sure details of route (did they drive to Windsor/Toronto and then fly?) but based on sizes of the 3 brothers, believe this is the flight west on this Air Canada bird in 1974.

(Is this a 737? or 707 like the Gordon Lightfoot song?)
