The Planes You Would Love To Fly

Mon Apr 15, 2002 10:08 pm

Although having flow on many many types, I am sad that my chances of flying the DC-8 and B707 is almost zero.  Crying  Crying  Crying

Regarding todays planes, I would love to fly the A340-500 and A340-600.  Love  Love Love

So what planes would you love to fly.

I'd love to fly on the 717, that would make the serie complete for me.

Otherwise, I hope I will soon fly on the A340 and the A380.

My dream being, of course, Concorde!

Fly as in control a plane? or Fly as in being on one!

I'd love to go on the A380 when that comes out.

As for flying a plane, well I can't wait until I start flying lessons

I would like to fly on the L10. Funny is that LT operates in former times a lot of flights with that plane from my home airport DUS but unfortunately I got every time the 757 or the M11.

The L1011. I hear former L1011 pilots talk lovingly about the flying qualities of the aircraft.

However, my airline retired the last of the fleet last year sometime.

My girlfriend got to fly the L1011 sim for about 20 minutes during a tour of the training center, but I didn't get a chance myself. Imagine that!

I have never been on an MD-11. I really like to fly one before they are all converted into freighters.

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!!!!  Smile)

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:
1) Concorde
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;
1) Concorde
2) Boeing 747-400
3) Boeing 777
4) Boeing 737 Classics
5) Boeing 727

There's got to be nothing like being in control of a 747. This is easily the most famous aircraft and most important save the Wright Flyer, and has the most mystique to it.

The amazing part, even while flying on a 747, is at rotation. Trying to imagine how all of that hunk of metal can climb so high is a priceless feeling.

my first choice would be the Concorde, then the A380
flying in a dassault falcon ( with all the fancy service  Smile

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:

1. Concorde
2. B777
3. A340
4. A330
5. A319/320

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.

F-16
Piper Cub

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  Big grin
