I guess deep down - though I hate to admit it, I'm a bit of an A320.

When people try to give me instructions and control me, I tend to do as I please anyway  Big thumbs up

I'm a 773.

Very long (snicker!), powerful, good seating, fantastic thrust (!), efficient, likeable, photogenic, great potential, and ON ORDER throughout the world!

Well mine is pretty obvious:



Handsome
Stylish
Well built
Distinctive
Innovative
Unique
Very stable

Occasionally if I crash, I just pick myself up



and fly again soon after........



even if it took 6 months and $800 000 to fix me up!

Definitely an DC-8-72.

Nothing spectacular in appearance ,just sleek and generally underestimated but holy sh**t !!! What an endurance (in terms of range ! Got it?).
And I do feel better now with over 30 years than I did with 15.

When I first started flying, I was a 727-200. Slim, sleek and fast!
As I get older, I feel more like a combination 747/A3-anything...It's harder for me to fit into the gate area and everything on me seems to be falling apart. ?:-l

Retired fast (can't make friends, those I do wind up hating me)
High maintainence (i eat a lot, and I drive my parents crazy)
and,
I try to blow smoke up people's butts (Not literally, ya'll know, try to persuade someone to do something or believe something) but I always wind up choking them out.  Big thumbs up

You would think, based on my name, that I'd be a 737-200,

But.........

I'm actually an A320!!!!

Why? Let me explain. I'm kinda short, but I give a cute, frindly, and very approachable appearance. I don't have as much power as some other people do, but I get the job done, and have fun while I'm doing it.

I'm alos kind of hard to control if you will. No one can force me to do what I will not do, I have my minimums and my maximums, and if you push me into either one, I'll resist you.

(That is, I have goals and I have people who would not like to see me achieve those goals, and I puch harder towards them because of that.  Smile )

I also have relatively few buttons to push, I'm not all that complicated, and generally easy to figure out. As an aircraft I wear my emotions on my sleeve, and if I don't want to fly that day, we're not flying, not unless your nice to me.  Big grin

Go A320!!!

I'm a 737-900 with winglets: moderately tall, skinny, and I blend in all too well with the rest of the world, not to forget, big hands.
I don't know, so this is my signature.
