If You Could Pilot Any Plane, What Would It Be?

Sun Jun 03, 2001 7:06 pm

Would you choose the DC-10 to fly?

Perhaps the mighty 747-400?

Maybe the ATR 72 (for the prop lovers)?

What'll it be?...........

(My choice.......a tossup: the B747-100 or the B757-200.)

I would love to fly the 747-400 or 777 if I would fly long-haul. Otherwise I would like to fly the A320.

The SAAB 340 is Ok because I flew it in Crossair's simulator. I'd like also like to try the EMB-145.
But if I had the real choice I'd go for the 747-400. It's the biggest civil aircraft around and has amazing flying capabilities.

I wouldn't mind trying anything the size of a 737 or bigger. That of course will probably never happen, but you can always dream  Smile

Here's a list anyway:
1. Boeing 747-400
2. Lockheed L-1011 TriStar
3. Boeing 777-*
4. Concorde
5. Boeing 737-900

Bae146 for alot of fun landing and taking off.

Otherwise any aircraft in the 100-200 seat category, modern jetliners but still quite small.

Here are mine votes:
1. B747-200
2. A340-300
3. A320-200
4. DC9-30
5. B717-200
6. CRJ-200

I think that 742 has the nicest and most complicated cockpit of all airliners and A340 has the nicest modern cockpit. Last time I was in B744 and I must say that it was nothing special.

Realistically, a Gulfstream III or IV. In fantasy, a 777-200 or -300.

I would definitely fly the 747-400 or 777-200! They are both high-tech, both fly on long range routes, both are big, and they both have yokes for flying. I would not like to fly with a sidestick like Airbus has.

Hi,

I would choose to be a Pilot on any B747. It does not matter to me if it is a B747-100, B747-200, B747-300, B747-400, or B747SP.

As a pilot I would chose a plane that would not force me great distances, however I still want something big. My choice is the A321.

As a long-distance aircraft i would be in an undecided, chosing between Airbus A340 and A330.

As an old-time favorite, B727-200 would certainl top my list  Smile  Smile  Smile
