Specific aircraft that got you into aviation

If there's a specific aircraft that got you interested in aviation, what was it?

For me it's the CH-47 Chinook, C-5 Galaxy, and 747-400

If you have a chance to find MacArthur Job's masterpiece of investigation and explanation on this accident, I highly recommend you read it.

Just curious, is that 1 airport 747 capable?

Of course it would have made no difference, since it didn't exist back when JAL123 occurred.

The Salty Simulations freeware 747-8 has a feature where it pauses upon reaching the T/D. It doesn't alter the fuel consumption, speed, and altitude like MSFS's active pause does, but it merely freezes the airframe till you toggle it off in the FMS.
