If you could have any aircraft in the world for your personal use which one would it be? I would have a Boeing 707-320C (-321, -323, -324, -327, -331) because of its size and range, and because I think the 707-320C is a great jetliner.

Safire S-26 Personal Jet piloted by yours truly if we are being semi-realistic.

Go to to find out what one is!

The other aircraft I would love would be a 767-200 with spacious seating and a bed.

Considering the types of places I would want to go mostly within U.S.: 737-700, can fly into smaller airports, good range and ETOPS if I wanted to go to say Hawaii.

My DREAM aircraft has to be a 777-100. That's a 777LR shrink that never got off the drawing board.

Realistically, the closest I'll get to flying an airplane for awhile is driving fast in my new car (which isn't exactly a huge letdown for me). I can't wait until I get it in November!

But when I go back to school at Cal I should be able to get a US Navy ROTC scholarship, which also provides me with my shot at getting into the cockpit.

GO BEARS!

Assuming money is no object, of course  

Long trips: 777-300ER

Closer to home: CRJ-700/900 or DeHavilland Dash 8 Q400

TriStar for sure... I'm sure there's something creative
one could do with that lower galley...

Slightly closer to reality (but not much closer)...
I'd take a Farchild/Swearingen Merlin III-- love that plane

I would love to have an Airbus A330-243 or -343. If not one of those, than a 777-200ER.

I'd like a 747-400. Put a bedroom in the nose, then have a room with a big screen TV, some sofas, and a few AA or BA first class seats. I would also have a big dining room.

I would say that my dream 'plane would be an MD-11 with a kitchen, bathroom with a tub, large entertainment centre, sofa, and maybe...40 first class seats in the back. The interior would be dark blue and grey. As far as the paint job goes, I would prefer no paint like American or Flying Tigers.

What fun is a plane that you can't fly... so here goes.
For the price of those super fancy widebodies I will get...
A new Cessna CJII
A Piper Malibu Mirage
An old Beech Staggerwing
A classic, early 60's model, model 35 Bonanza.
A Mooney TLS
A Lake Turbo Amphibian
A Cessna 425 Conquest I
A Beech B200 Super King Air
A Citation 500SP with full Eagle mods
A Cessna A-37
hmmmm... am I getting close to the cost of a custom 777 yet??

Let's see oh yeah, a new Cessna T206 Turbo Stationair.
And... hmmmm...
can't think of any more right now.
