The Aircraft You've Never Flown On

Is there an aircraft (past or present) that you've wished you could go on, but have never gotten the chance?
Well, I have a lot. My two would have to be the A340 (I want to feel that "slow" takeoff for myself) and the A330. Being from the United States, the closest airline A340s are operated on are Air Canada. But, I don't have the time nor the money to make a long-haul flight. Can't wait for an opportunity to travel USAirways A330's somewhere. (Hoping desperately for a trip to Europe)

Well, that was like a doctoral dissertation! So, your turn.

I'd love to get on *any* Airbus (still waiting!), *any* turboprop, a B777, and an Embraer ERJ.
It'd be nice to get one last run on a DL L-1011 before they go, as well. 727 too.

I'm a fan of the oldies- I wish I could have flown on a DC-8, and maybe a L1011 before they're all beer cans...

I've never had the chance to go on a 767. - it was the equipment listed to used on an Air Canada flight from YYZ to YUL last year, but there was a last minute equipment change to a CRJ! (The CRJ was a pretty nice plane and it was my first time on one, so I'm not complaining.) The YVR-HNL route also tended to get stuck with those DC-10s until recently, so I never did have the chance to fly on a CP 767, either. Others include the A330 and the A340, both of which are operated by AC.

There hasn't been a Airliner plane that I haven't flow yet, But I would really like to get a last run on the
L1011 tristars before they go!!



P.S. What I mean is that i have flown all the Airbus, Boeing, MD's and I've only flown on the Fokker 100's as far as Fokkers go.

The one jet that I've never been on is the Boeing 707. I think it would have been pretty neat to be on one.

I would say the 767, 777 or any Airbus plane. The next plane I would like to ride on would probably be an Airbus plane, especially the brand new A330 or the A340, or perhaps the 777.

I would like to fly on a Dc-8
and it would also be cool to fly on a 727 and 757
but I really wanted to try that Airbus 340 and 330 aircraft. And yes I live in Canada so it would be easy to get a Air Canada flight.. only problem they over charge.

Been on:
DC-9s, Dc-10-30 (a lot of fun), MD-80s, MD-90s, Boeing 727-200s, 737-200s and 300s, 757-200, 767-200 and 300ERs, Airbus A300B4s and 600Rs (my favorite), and TriStar L-1011 (too bad they are a dying breed, fleet rather)  

Would love to fly on:
Airbus A330/340, Boeing 747s, 777s and OF COURSE, the Concorde.   Don't have the smoke to travel on one.

I'd also like the chance to fly on a DL L1011 before they are retired. I've never flown on an L1011, and it looks like I probably will never have the chance.

I'd also love to fly on a 777 and an A330. I'd like to compare the two and see how alike or different they really are in terms of comfort, noise, etc. I did get the chance to fly on a 737-800 for the first time this morning (CO). It was a bit uncomfortable in coach, as the seat pitch was a bit tight. I'm 6'1", and when the guy in front of me reclined, my knees were jabbed into the back of the seat. Maybe AA is onto something taking seats out of their planes. And remember, I'm a die-hard CO fan. Anyway, the service was great, the plane was clean, and the Wheaties were tasty, haha!

Yes, like so many of you, my repertoire of aircraft flown is fairly small. There are many types which I would like to fly on, with the 777 being foremost in my mind. Other types desired are:

A319/320/321
A330/340
737NG
767 of all varieties
747-400 (I have had only 1 747 flight, on a UA -SP)
MD90/717

Maybe in time, I guess. A DC-10 flight would also go down well.

I think it has to be Concorde.

I'd also like to compare the A32x and the 737NG within a short space of time.

Seat 1A on a BA 747-400 (never been on this variant) would also be quite nice...

I am very fortunate to have flown on most of the first-generation jets, including 707 (all variants), DC-8 (all variants), CV-990, Caravelle, Trident, Comet, DC-9 (early models), Fokker F-27. But I would love to experience both ends of the speed spectrum, namely:

Fast and high: Concorde

Slow and easy: Any propliner, esp. DC-3, Lockheed 1049 Constellation, DC-6, Boeing B377 Stratocruiser, Boeing 317 Clipper. Anything with big round engines.

I have never flown on any of the Russian aircraft; I would love to fly on any of these! The Tu-114 long-range turboprop is particularly appealing. Flying on that massive plane, with its on-board dining area, must have been quite an experience.

Concorde tops the list for sure!!!!!
Newer long-range types such as 777 and A340
Blasts from the past would be CV-990, Connie, DC-6 or 7, Viscount and Brittania

I like the sound of Fanofjets' Slow & Easys and that Tu-114. Also like Pronto... The Viscount is still my favourite aircraft that I HAVE flown in.
My votes:

Fast: Concorde
Slow: Curtiss C-46 Commando
Majestic: Hindenberg !!
