Well, I got thinking about it last night, and I was wondering what type of airplane everyone would buy if they could afford anything.

I would actually have two: I would start off by buying a 777-300ER in a VIP configuration as my all-round plane! A bedroom, a theatre/living room, and of course: a bar which also serves peanuts  Big grin

I would also buy an F-16E for having fun in. That would be a wild ride!

What about you guys?

Probably some Bombardier Global Express or a Gulfstream V. Then again, a 757 would be nice!

For getting around, a Boeing 747SP. For a toy, a Douglas Skyraider, CASA 2111 or Grumman HU-16 Albatross.

Actually, as money is theoretically no object, all of the above.

One of the ex-PSA L-1011s with the lower deck lounge.
A Boeing 707 and 727 would also be great to have!

B773ER with long range fuel tanks. Reason for the decision would be because the B777 has the widest fuselage then any passenger aircraft, which means more space to put things in  Smile

767-200ER or if I was buying brand new a 787-8, but most probably that would be too big to operate to many airports, so something smaller would be fine. 721,M87,ACJ and GEX are all up there on my list.

I think I'd go for a nicely refurbished 727! I love Trijets, and the 727 has the right size. Also, I always found the rear staircase cool, haha!

Probably a jetBlue A320 and a Virgin Atlantic A340 so I can go wherever I want.
Maybe I will get an A380 and own a hotel in it. Lol

Probably an A340-600 for long-haul and a Cessna Citation X for short/medium haul (I've always had a liking for this plane and similar business jets. Something always brings a smile to my face when you hear the words "Cessna", "FL470" and "600 mph"!)

Definetly an A380, and turn it into a flying mansion. And put in a 7/11 for good measure...

I'd forgotten about the Avanti. I'll have one of those as well for the times a 747SP isn't practical, seeing as how money is no object.
