I've Never Flown On A ___________ Before

Sat Apr 10, 2004 4:49 am

Hello...can I ask you all to fill in the blank with a type of aircraft you wish you could have or had flown on? Just a curiosity. Also the reason behind your selection.

I would fill in the blank with probably the Constellation or Stratocruiser. Besides the fact that there was glamour all around, I bet those baby's could really work it over the Atlantic or Pacific.

A Boeing B-314 Clipper. Must have been quite an experience, traveling to Europe or Asia in style on Pan Am's big flying boats.

I would love to fly on an A330. Can't wait for Egyptair to get their A332s in June. They will use them on their domestic flight for crew training, so I hope to have a go on them then. It is the only aircraft I haven't flown from A and B.

I wish I could have flown the L-1049 Super Constellation across the Atlantic like they did back in the 50s and 60s. To board this wonderful aircraft at my home-airport Dusseldorf, to cross the pond after the first stop-over in Shannon, to arrive in Gander for the second stopover and to continue to New York - it must have been great to fly this plane!
Born to fly! It's more than a passion - it's a yearning!! At home in DUS(Dusseldorf)!

Boeing 767 is the only Boeing missing from my collection. Hoping to get on one this fall however.

I'd also like to make it on an Airbus for longhaul, as that too has eluded me thus far.

Oh yeah... and the Concorde. Big grin

ive never flown.......

A Tu-154 - Like concorde but a little faster and a lot more unsafe

An-255 - just imagine the power!

B-17 superfortress - PGUM-RJOA-PGUM just to reinact some history

B-52 - seems cozy

Concorde - obvious reasons

A fancy fighter jet like a mig-XXX - looks like a good thrill

One of those fancy old boat planes - travel in style

That A340-500 that Qatar Airways use for there V.I.P's - a nice cosy private jet without the awkwardness of having George Bush on the plane

as far as realistic wishes go....

Two aircraft I haven't flown on and REALLY want to are the 747 and 777.

After flying on a 767-400, I kinda get the idea that a 777 feels about the same. Does it???

747 especially
777
757

Never have, probably never will, but like to:
DC-10

Flown on, but no desire to go again
767
CR7
A320

The 737 is one that doesn't fit into any of the above

UA 757
AS 737-200 Combi
UA 737-500
QX Metro III
AS MD-88
PSA MD-83

What I would love to fly on is BAe-146: The cutest jets in the air! But since it has been 10 years since my last flight, any jet will do.....

Concorde, Concorde, Concorde!!!

Any widebody except for DC-10 (flew that in the '80s)

Until 2 years ago I had never been on a CRJ or ERJ, but the last two years I've been on one of each.

737-NG. Been on lots of 737 Classics, but no 600+

Never flown on a Fokker.

Never had the opportunity to fly on a Bus, either.

I have flown on 60 types but I still miss:
airplanes still flown by airlines now; Emb-110 Bandeirante, Do-228, Do-328, BAe 748

airplanes which do not fly (passengers) anymore: Concorde, Trident, DC-8, Caravelle, DC-7, C-46, Convair 240, 880/990, Mercure, Comet, Curtiss Commando, DHC-4, Lockheed Hercules, Vickers Vanguard, Viking, VC-10, Bristol Britannia, VFW-614, CL-44, IAI Arava, Shorts Skyvan, Tu 104/124, Il-14, Il-76, Tu-204
