Exactly what the title says, what was your first airplane? Mine was an Iluishin IL-62 belonging to Aeroflot. I was in seat 5A, buisness class. It was awome, It still tops my list of favorite airplanes. The flight was SVO-SNN-ORD.
life wasn't worth the balance, or the crumpled paper it was written on

PSA MD-80 Flt #603*
*This is the first flight I REMEMBER. My folks have told me that they took me on a United 737 c. 05/74 from LAX-FAT. I was about 6-8 months old they said.
Needless to say, I have absolutely no recollection of that flight.

Oh what memories I have, my first flight took place back
in the summer of 82'. I was 6 years old, and boy was it
an experience. We flew on an Eastern, 727-200 I even
remember it was an airplane in the white color scheme,
not silver (bare metal). We flew to Tampa, back in those days there was wonderful jet service, today, your stuck with a Dash 8 on Usairways, or connecting in ATL.
Anyway, it was my first airplane ride, will never forget
as we rotated off the ground, I was filled with excitement. My dad took a picture of me by the window
of course and to this day get goosbumps when I think
of my first airplane experience. You know, ever sence
that day, after getting a taste of the skies, your hooked
and you keep coming back deeply hungrey for more.
Man, I cant deny it, I really love to fly...dont we all. =)

Mine was a United Airlines DC10-10 "Friend Ship" Chicago-Los Angeles in August 1982. I was THREE WEEKS old! Today, I have flown on the DC10 more than any other plane, and it remains my favorite (despite its bad reputation).

My first flight was when I was 5 years old when I first visited Poland since I am Polish.
I believe it was a 767 and the year was 1990 (i'm 14 now) from YYZ to WAW (Warsaw airport I believe), I almost got plane sick but I made it.

My first flight was TWA 747-100 in'71 from JFK to Stuttgart (soory don't knoww all the accronyms). Like a typical 4 year old I was sick of all the waiting areas before wegot onto the plane. Funny thing was when we finally boarded I thought it was yet another waiting area! My Dad informed me that we were on the plane. Boy was I excited then. I've been addicted to flying ever since.

My first flights were on some very rare aircraft and I can't remeber a thing about them.
My first flight was on a Monarch Boeing 720B from Manchester to Malta at the age of 18 months in early 1980. I returned to Manchester on a Dan Air 720B operating on lease to Air Malta.

My first plane ride was on the very beautiful DC-8 (probably a -61 series). I was 14 months old and the flight was from St. John's, NF (YYT) to Toronto (YYZ).
Looking at my log book that my father kept for me, I flew on a total of 27 DC-8's. Boy do I miss those jet-age beauties!!!

My first airplane ride was in a Cessna 172. My first commercial flight was on an Eastern DC-9, although I remember my mother telling me of her flying one time when she was pregnant with me. Unfortunately, I do not remember the airline or aircraft.

It was a 727-200 from MCO-ORD. This was 6-5-82, I was 6 months old. The registration was N477DA. I think Delta just got rid of it, I just looked up the registration, and it said the owner was "sale reported".
