What would it be?? Use your imagination and choose the one aircraft you most would like to see in your garage. It can be anything you want...from a Piper Cub to a 747. Even military types, if you choose. Right down to the tail-number. But, just one please. My first & only choice is N294AA, an American MD-82. It was the first aircraft I took my little girl on her very first plane trip. From LGB to DFW. One of my best flight ever.  Wink/being sarcastic Any & all replys are appreciated. Regards.

It could be nice to have an A380 in the garage Big grin. But if I could choose now I would take a CRJ with extra fuel tanks for transatlantic capacity.

Beeeautiful plane. Check out some of the pictures on here of her. I was supposed to take her YYZ-YUL but there was a mech. problem so I was delayed 12 hours and in the morning had to take a 7557...  Sad



Next flight.... who knows.

i DREAM of an Ultralight: a 2 engine beauty i saw on National Geography.

Hope to buy it one day, and take it out on a sping across the Western Ghats every Weekend!

Hmm.... DREAMS!

Some of you must have some pretty big garages there...

I still stand behind my choice of a Cessna CJII. The only problem being I couldn't get one for about 4 years from now.

As much as I would like a Piaggio P180 Avanti parked in my hangar, the reality is that I can't afford the 416 liters/hour fuel burn, the $165 000 engine overhaul bill, or the insurance.

On a more realistic note, I guess the Velocity kit plane would float my boat!



or perhaps an old Cessna C177 Cardinal, but preferably with retractable gear.

For me it would have to be the TBM 700. Cruise speed of 300 kts., stall speed of 61 kts. 1500 nm range. Nice for flying to any airport, and not too big.

But if we're talking fantasy, it would be a BBJ!  Smile

If I could park one aircraft in my garage, it would be an American Airlines 737-823 Astro Jet colors. The reg. number is N951AA. Besides this aircraft being in special colors, it carried George W. Bush (when he was President-Elect)! Here is a picture of the plane:

Would someone please e-mail me with instructions for how to post the pictures in their full size. Thanks!

Indianguy, your "ultralight" is actually a lightplane, the Leza-Lockwood Air Cam. It looks like a blast to fly.

Personally, I can't pick just one! So many planes, so many roles they fly.... So here's my list:

Italian built Sky Arrow (2 seater) for fun
Extra 400 for travel
Stemme S10-VT for soaring
Pitts S2-C for aerobatics
and finally, a paraglider.
