I have been in

A319 - British Airways
A320 - MyTravel
A330 - Novair
B763 - SAS
L-1011 - Novair

+ about 50 when we've been on the ground.
All these were before 9/11 apart from MyTravel. Don't know why they let me in, but they did! Big grin

Only 2:

CX 747-200 and I remember getting an electric shock as I climbed the stairs.

NZ 767-200ER, I can remember it clearly as it was on the 1st of October 2000 (day of the closing ceremony) just out of SYD on the East/West runway and we looked out the cockpit and there was the entire Olympic venue from the air! It was spectacular seeing that and the fact that it was the last day made it more special.



It's all about the destination AND the journey.

Flew the entire few hours of duty with a pilot friend of mine in an Eastern Australia (QantasLink) Dash 8 about 12 years ago. A great day!



I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!

Well, maybe they are waiting for the first Norwegian terrorist attack before barring Norwegians from visiting the flightdeck.

A bit off topic but when I had my first 747 flight back in 1972 I got a static shock every time I touched something metal, it eventually made me feel quite ill.
