I don't remember where we were going or anything else about the flight but I have a specific memory of looking out the window at the runway edge line as we accelerated, then watching it fall away as we took off.
My first airline flight... I'm gonna say was probably something like EWR-PDX or JFK-PDX (not sure which route they actually flew) on a Northwest Orient 747. That would have been in something like 1978, when I was 6 years old.

It could possibly have been a 727 or even a 757 (i know some a.netters have access to that info, id love to know for sure), but there is a photo in the database of a NW A320 arriving in LAX with the caption stating its arriving from Memphis in December 1992. I could be in there!
