OK, given the chance to fly on any passenger aircraft currently certified in the US (it doesn't neccessarily have to be US based) which aircraft would you most like to fly on?

For me it would be an A310.

This is just a research thing for a possible future project I have in mind.

For me, it would be a difficult choice between the HS Trident, Boeing 707 or 720, or the VC10.

The Space Shuttle. It's a glider, but I'd love to be at the wheel of that sucker.

Would be nice. The last time I flew on one I didn't know the end was near for them in the USA. I would like to fly on one just more time.

I'll keep this on aircraft in regular service today, because there are just too many types of airliners that aren't flying anymore that I wish I would have had at least one trip with, such as the L1049, Boeing 314 and Concorde. But for today's airliners, I still have not been on a B777 and am looking very forward to my first experience.

I flew this year in a Saha Air 707 making one of my desires and dreams accomplished; in a VC10 I flew 8 or 10 years ago in a demonstration made in the Brize Norton RAF Air Base;

Soviet models are now my dream: to fly in a Tupolev Tu-104; in the Tupolev Tu-114 Rossiya, Ilyushin Il-14 or in a Tupolev Tu-124.

The 747 I would have really like it to have been a Pan Am A/C. The Concorde flight could have been any airline. The 727 my own VIP jet that was re-engine with PW JT8 219 and had winglet put on it. The 707 well I see if I can get to ride on a E-6B Mercury.

Anything really that I haven't already been on before, 707 would be nice, 727 perhaps, but I'd prefer something Russian.

Sadly the same thing happened to me. I didn't know my last
L1011 flight would be my LAST L1011 flight. Sure wish I knew,
or I would have appreciated it a lot more.

I wish I could fly on one of these.
