Yes I do like the little Jungle jet and unlike you I've never seen the new one -145xr. Memorable first sightings for me were a CP
Air DC-8 and DC-10, A Pan Am 747sp with the bill board titles, and a very odd visitor to Sydney,
a Ports of Call Convair that I think was a 990, I'd never ever seen one of those before.Just a few weeks ago I saw the Qantas A330 for the first time and will fly it on Wednesday to Melbourne, My first A330 flight.
Oh and I remember seeing a RAF VC
-10 doing a passenger charter and departing from the International Terminal! That was so cool!
I'm going to the US in April and I hope to see the CRJ-900 for the first time too.
