There was a survey form we had to fill in during the journey. I gave everything full marks so enamoured was I with this new method of transport. That included the 'comfort' question. As you probably know, the VA3 had a metal skirt so whenever we hit a small wave, there was a significant jolt. I just ignored that though!
I'm also including a scan of the certificate I got (my parents got the name filled in later - it was just blank as I received it) and the actual photo I took of the hovercraft as it arrived before we boarded. I guess the certificate must have been paid for or sponsored by BP, as they geta mention, curiously."
Also sent by Mr Lloyd-Jones is a promotional leaflet by British United Airways
