I have not flown on all that many planes, but I have flown on some, and my favorite to take off in is the CRJ. The CRJ just seems like it has more power than the big Boeings and Airbuses even though thats not at all true. I was wondering what your favorite airplane is durring take off?

forget planes,how about helicopters.During take-off on one flight,i was sitting in the front row of seats and the heli lifted a few feet and swept over some tree tops.It was really worth the $60 ticket.

I think takeoffs in the ATR's and other regional aircraft are funner than the big jets. But that is just my own opinion.
The 757 is a great takeoff plane, especially out of TGU. TGU is a short field, so they use alot of power and they hold the brakes while the engines spool up. A whole lot of fun.

L1011-1/100 loaded, nothing beats that initial Full power throttle "moo sound" to the transition over to that Large turbofan "Buzz saw' sound. When loaded they just lumber down the runway slowly(rattling most of the time even when much newer), I love a long takeoff roll.

First of all FlyingBronco05 i do realize that funnest is not a word but the title of a post being "Most Fun Planes On Take Off" just doesnt sound as good. I also see that many said the 757 and I was wondering if a plane that big really has a lot of accel?
ask not what your pilot can do for you, ask what you can do for your pilot

As for me, I have ridden on a lot of different airplanes, and DC-9 comes to mind on one take off that was a real steep angle, and a 747 once, but the airplane that I have had the most impression of power has to be the Beech 1900, the ones that Ihave been on, when they applied full power, you felt yourself get pushed back in the seat, and when they roatate it seems to climb almost straight up, I know the one time the pilot of our company said he pegged the verticle speed indicator on one climb out as it was winter time.

The most powerful/fun takeoffs I have were on an AA 757 from ORD-YYZ, practically empty plane on a very short flight. Another powerful one was AC A320 from YYZ-MIA. That was probably the best powered take-off I've ever felt. Also on a WestJet 737-700 from YUL-YHM just a few weeks back, only about 60 people on board, and again a short flight. WICKED performance. I love high powered, light take-offs.

Any four engine piston...DC6, Connie..The noise and vibration. You youngsters
just haven't lived until you have been in one of these grand dads of flight and experienced take-off.
Now, the jets push you right back in your seat with noise..I like the 757 or 767.
But for sheer excitement with the noise, its the connie or DC 6(6B also).
There was nothing like it.
If two people agree on EVERYTHING, then one isn't necessary.

I sat right next to the engine on an AirTran 717 on a flight from ATL to HOU. It was a night flight, and I was tired, but the little "buzz saw" noise made me go to sleep rather than stay up. I enjoy that "buzz saw" noise. That was the best flight for me.
