I would love not only to fly but to master the MD-80 specially the older versions which still have the analog panel on it. By the way I have heard that this is kind of a difficult airplane to fly, any comments?

I'd love to fly on the 717, and the 777, which for me, would have put me on all of the more recent Boeing aircraft. I'd also like to fly on the 737-800, 757-300, A340 and the A321 (which may be this summer!!!! )
As for planes I've flown before- Would love to get on another 747 in the near future!! And, before it's too late, I'd like another couple trips on a 727 or my favorite, the L-1011.

For me it would have to be the CV-990. Fast bird that was. Others the Tu-144. The DH-106 Comet, and Tu-114. Newer ones, A-340, A-321, MD-11, IL-96, A-380, Yak-42, Tu-154, Tu-134, Tu-204. Ya I have a thing for Russain Planes.

As far as being a passenger:
2) Boeing 717
3) Boeing 727 (I don't remember ever flying one)
4) Boeing 747-400 (Been on it before, but, hell, another trip can't hurt!)
5)Boeing 777 (same as the 744, I'd like to do that again)
Or, if I were able to be a pilot;
2) Boeing 747-400
3) Boeing 777
4) Boeing 737 Classics
5) Boeing 727

my first choice would be the Concorde, then the A380
flying in a dassault falcon ( with all the fancy service
Concorde1518, i don't you would enjoy being in the commands of the concorde, the cockpit is so outdated, unlike the new generation of airplanes ( 747-400 , 777 , 767 and on ) almost every command in the concorde is manual.

For me they rank as follows:
I sure wish I could fly on the L1011 one more time. The only US carrier is ATA and they only do military charters from BWI. As for the rest, I know one day I will fly on all of the above except for the Concorde unless I hit the lottery.

I want to fly on:
757-300 (will have a chance for sure though )
A330 and A340
777 (was supposed to fly on it once, yet found out I could not use a companion pass on a codeshare flight so I wasn't able to make it early enough to connect, oh well, I loved that 763ER quite a bit)
A G4 or G5
...numerous other Biz Jets, the list goes on and on
