Here's one for you all!
If you could be at the controls of just one aircraft in your life, whether you fly professionally or not, which one would it be and why?
For me it would be the 747-400. Just being at the controls of the sheer massive size of such a machine would be incredible to me. There is something contradictive to me about 400 plus tons of a machine that flies. It's an easy choice for me since I have loved the 747 for pretty much my entire life.
What about you? Remember! You can only choose one! And tell why. Enjoy!

Does it really matter?
I mean: my goal would be to fly an airplane. Full stop. Maybe I could say I'd like a jet rather than a prop, maybe a huge bird rather than a smaller one. Maybe supersonic.
I love the simplicity of a Cessna. I love the massivity of a 744. I very much love most the shape of an M11. The "fatty" 732, and the stretched 753, 764, 773, 321, 346. I love the music of JT8D turbines. And the symphony of Concorde's after-burners.
Who minds? What I'd love is to get my license and fly by myself.
