Hello...can I ask you all to fill in the blank with a type of aircraft you wish you could have or had flown on? Just a curiosity. Also the reason behind your selection.

I would fill in the blank with probably the Constellation or Stratocruiser. Besides the fact that there was glamour all around, I bet those baby's could really work it over the Atlantic or Pacific.

A Boeing B-314 Clipper. Must have been quite an experience, traveling to Europe or Asia in style on Pan Am's big flying boats.

I would love to fly on an A330. Can't wait for Egyptair to get their A332s in June. They will use them on their domestic flight for crew training, so I hope to have a go on them then. It is the only aircraft I haven't flown from A and B.

I wish I could have flown the L-1049 Super Constellation across the Atlantic like they did back in the 50s and 60s. To board this wonderful aircraft at my home-airport Dusseldorf, to cross the pond after the first stop-over in Shannon, to arrive in Gander for the second stopover and to continue to New York - it must have been great to fly this plane!


Born to fly! It's more than a passion - it's a yearning!! At home in DUS(Dusseldorf)!

Boeing 767 is the only Boeing missing from my collection. Hoping to get on one this fall however.

I'd also like to make it on an Airbus for longhaul, as that too has eluded me thus far.

Oh yeah... and the Concorde. Big grin

Cheers - Skytrain.

ive never flown.......

A Tu-154 - Like concorde but a little faster and a lot more unsafe

An-255 - just imagine the power!

B-17 superfortress - PGUM-RJOA-PGUM just to reinact some history

B-52 - seems cozy

Concorde - obvious reasons

A fancy fighter jet like a mig-XXX - looks like a good thrill

One of those fancy old boat planes - travel in style

That A340-500 that Qatar Airways use for there V.I.P's - a nice cosy private jet without the awkwardness of having George Bush on the plane

as far as realistic wishes go....
