Description

'From the actress who hates heights came these words yesterday: "Flying is lovely." Hardly surprising, since Elizabeth Taylor had just stepped out of her OWN PLANE. It is a luxury 10-seater, 500-miles-an-hour De Haviland 125 Falcon jet that was a million-dollar gift from her husband, actor Richard Burton. The couple flew from Sardinia to RAF Abingdon, Berkshire, yesterday, to launch their new film together. "Dr Faustus" at Oxford on Sunday. This is the first time that the plane - called, not unnaturally, the Elizabeth - has been seen in England. Miss Taylor said after seeing Customs officials in the airfield's tiny passenger lounge: "I do suffer from vertigo. I hate looking down over a cliff or from a high building. But flying is different. Elizabeth was a birthday present from Richard two weeks ago and it's very comfortable. I am not nervous of flying at all - I love it."'
