What is your favorite aircraft you have never travled on. My choice would have to be "The Concorde".
Preferably a British Airways Concorde. I would like to fly from LHR to JFK and get there befor I left.
My favorite plane I have been a passenger on is a L1011-500 TWA just befor they retired them. After getting of an MD80 it seemed huge.

The aircraft I like the most that I've never been on would be the Boeing 777. I love it even though I've never been on it. I also like the A340, but I like the 777 more. The favorite aircraft I have been on though was a Cathay Pacific A330. It was brand new too!!!

Been on 40 types.... I long the most for aircraft which are quite impossible to catch (as a farepaying passenger), like the DC-8, the VC-10 or the Caravelle (Gabon Express is reported to start scheduled services with two ex French Air Force Caravelles. Does anyone know anything about that?).
But I feel very lucky I 'had' many other oldies, like the 707 and 720 of MEA, a Viscount and a Reeve Electra.
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

I'd love a chance to fly as a passenger on a 717, MD-11, L-1011, and the 328JET. I'd love to fly a Lancair IVP (pressurised, high-performance kitplane), F-14D, Cirrus SR20, Learjet 45 (love the cockpit), and the Bombardier Global Express (not only is this thing one of the best looking aircraft flying, it has what's possibly the most advanced cockpit flying).

As far as planes I'd like to fly in...some are impossible dreams...like the Briston Brabazon and Vickers VC-10, as well as the Tupolev TU144 Charger. The Concorde and the Ilyushin IL96-300 are more realistic.
