Let me clarify. I don't mean the number of types (i.e F-15, T-37) but the number of actual aircraft (i.e T-1 #201, T-6 968).

One - this airframe. Many years before I took the picture. And only as a pax, hope that's OK for the thread.

What are we qualifying as "flown"? Pilots fly aircraft (unless it is dual stick like the old F-4) everyone else rides along. So if you a piliot, you can say you have flown an aircraft, if your a nav you can say you have flown on an aircraft.

I will narrow it down to two of my favorites. 68-0531 was the first E model I flew in when I transferred from Louisville to Ft Wayne. The second, 68-0506, was the one that eventually had my name on the rear canopy rail.

Logged crew time was the orignal intent, but hey if you've got a good story about a ride you took feel free to share.

A lot of the specific airframes appear on A.net, and the quality of the photos is always impressive.

My username is based on this airplane (62-4128), which has since been reconfigured from the sole RC-135X into one of the three current RC-135S airframes. My crew flew the first operational reconnaissance mission in the COBRA EYE on 15 August 1989, call sign "Blind 23," of the 24SRS, 6SRW based at PAEI and operating from PASY.

My final military flight was in 82-0046 in April 1993 from KLFI with the 94TFS, 1TFW. In 2002 BGEN Yeager "borrowed" the airplane to commemorate his flight.

I've flown on all the current VH-3's, VH-60's, CH-53's and CH-46's. Mind you flown on. Not flown. I was an avionicsman in the unit from 94-01 and would have to trouble shoot systems and every now and then we got to do check rides to make sure the systems worked after we "fixed" them.  wink  I know it doesn't really count, but I thought I'd share.

3500 launches as pilot in command in military registered gliders. Gained pole time on various RAF light aircraft and helicopters. These are the only ones on the database.
