One of the things I'm now into is to try to fly new airliners that I havent flew yet. I still have a few that are still around, maybe you guys have also a few, of course I'm not talking about those that will be quite impossible to fly. Here are mine:

Cool hobby isn't it? I also hunt all over the world to fly in rare airplane types and versions.
The more common ones I want to get are :
Airbus 330-300 (probably Cathay in the fall)
Boeing 747SP (Iran Air pleasure flight in september)
777-300 (probably Cathay/Thai in the fall)
Curtiss Commando (in Bolivia L.A.Canedo might start flying pax with one)
DC-6, DC-7 (waiting for the Flying Bulls and ex Eastern projects to take pleasure flying pax)
DC-8 (will be hard, maybe getting in a cargo or VIP bird one day)
DHC-8-300 (did the others)
Dornier 228, 328 jet (did the 328-prop two weeks ago)
Fairchild 27/227 (did 3 Fokker 27 flights though)
Grumman Gulfstream (will try a Kenyan domestic flight with East African one day)
Il-62 (will try Kras Air pleasure flight in september)
Nord 262 (Guatemala or Honduras)
Sud Caravelle (will be hard, maybe in Africa one day or the swedish one if they ever get in the air)
Shorts Skyvan will be cool (did the 330 and 360), but none are passenger carrying unless you want to parachute out. What will be your plan?
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?
