This is for all you pilots (real and wannabe) out there, I was wondering what your dream plane to own and fly would be? Mine would either be a Spitfire or a F-4 Phantom, both a far cry from the Cessna 172 I'm currently in...

Mine would be a A3XX configured with a pool with a water slide from the second level going down to the cargo hold, spa, office, entertainment room, bedroom. and a big bathroom with big bath.

Mine would be the A3XX simply for its size, but I would change it to a T-tail with 5 engines, one on top like 727, and 2 on each wing. For an actual plane, it would be the MD-80, I love the T-Tail, the long sleek body and the angled back wings!

Put me on a Boeing Business Jet with an on-board Internet connection, a galley and bar on-board with two stewards in alternating shifts, active noise cancelling throughout the aircraft so as to make it quiet as a tomb, a home theater onboard with a projection TV and Dolby Digital 5.1 sound, and of course a shower and full bathroom. The only windows in the aircraft would be two big ones in the main salon; otherwise it's completely window free so as to create a good ambience.

Then when I get to my destination, I switch to a Boeing 609A tilt-rotor so as to travel vertically.

Well, I'm really gonna go against the grain here...

I would LOVE to own and fly a Beech 18. I think its a darn sexy airplane with the twin tails and grumbling P&W raidal engines. Just a darn classy airplane. Other airplanes I'd love to fly? A Lockheed Constellation, B-17, a Beech Staggerwing and a Stearman... definately the Stearman (sigh!).

Of course, if someone gave me the keys to a luxery 757 with an Austin Powers paintjob and a rotating bed, I doubt I'd turn them down!

I'd want something that I could actually fly myself. I remember drooling over pictures of the Piper Malibu Mirage in Flying Magazine when I was younger. I forget the name of the new model with the turboprop... but that would have to be my pick as my personal dream plane. If someone else was flying I'd want a Hawker 1000.

I often imagine what it must have been like for pilots of propliners to sit in a DC-8 or 707 cockpit for the first time. The performance of the jet engines must have been breathtaking! Now, of course, many (if not most) airliner afficianados would give anything to fly one of those wonderful old planes with round engines.

A Canadair Global Express. Long range and able to bypass the major airports if necessary.

I would definantly love to have a waterslide on my plane with all the water ways and that big tub on my plane but if the plane would hit tubulence or an air pocket man would the insurance companies go out of business in covering the serious water damage especially on a super jumbo like an A3XX. I hope that by that time airplane companies can make a plane that will fly through airpocketrs and turbulance with no problems. Until then; The Boeing buiness jet will do me just fine. I love the interior and space is absolutley no problem.

My dream airplane would be any of the following:
Gulfstream I, II, III, IV, V

To me it is just a real beautiful aircraft up close and at a distance also. I know that the GI was a turbo prop but it does not take anything away from it. I have had the pleasure of going inside a few of these aircrafts when I worked at the airport.

IA second aircraft for me would be the Desault Falcon . Another beautiful design.

How about a Boeing Business Jet - a stretched variant based on the 737-900, rather than the 737-700? That's what I'd love to have. The plane should have cabin noise suppression systems throughout, so it will be really quiet inside. I'd love to have Internet connections and satellite TV (no, there won't be a satellite dish sticking out of the plane!), as well as a VCR to watch movies with.

There would be fair-sized bedroom in the back of the plane with nice king-sized bed, a lounge room with four cushy leather swivel seats and a fat leather sofa. Also, there'd be a couple of small tables there and a large hi-res TV and stereo. Put in a specialized desk with a flat monitor PC and a printer. A fridge is a must to put all the beer and other booze and stuff in. In the front one-quarter of the plane, that's where the galley kitchen and the bathroom with shower would be. The plane'd have all of the windows present, so you could see outside like any other passenger a/c.

Well, it is a dream, so I'd say a 747-400 Combi. The rest of the plane would be decked out with private rooms(with full size beds for those long flights), an 'entertainment' area(bigscreen TV, videogames, - stuff for yourself and guests to do while on board). The rear could be rented out for cargo for whatever destination you're going to, and could even bring your own car to use in your destination...If something smaller, I'd go for a Global Express - nice looking aircraft, and long legs!!
