Planespotting: A Place in the Sky - Aidan Quigley

In 1975, as part of the "My Own Place" series, Aidan Quigley, originally from Foxford, Co. Mayo, demonstrates how his work place is in the sky.  He was working as an Aer Lingus captain on the North Atlantic route and the camera follows him as he goes about what was considered a very glamorous job at the time.  He explains the daily routine of flying a jumbo jet and talks about how he started out as a pilot in the Aer Corps.
