I saw a documentary on airline safety a while ago. An "expert" stated that he would not fly on a 727-100, or 737-100, due to their "relative ages". Curious to see if anyone had any similar thoughts....

I was in a Eastern European country waiting to pushback and next to us there was a Tupolev 134. It looked very bad, I don't know how people would want to fly those planes. I wouldn't fly them if it was for free. I guess people in Russia or Eastern Europeans don't have a choice.

When flying in Lao recently, I was happy to avoid their Chinese Y12s, which have had a chequered safety record with them...I notice on their website, that they are about to introduce the MA60...I hope this is more successful!
Funnily, flying on one of their ATR72s, several passengers (maybe because of the propellers) thought they were Russian planes!
it's the bus to stansted (now renamed national express a4 to ruin my username)

Any light aircraft, really. A bit counter productive seeing as I want to be a pilot when I'm older! But I really hate any light aircraft, so cramped, noisy, smelly, whatever. And they get thrown around the sky by the slightest "turbulence". No thanks.
