My three:
1. RV8 - I think these aircraft are the greatest experimentals. Low and slow, upside down, and respectable speed all rolled into one.
2. P51 - Guns, guns, guns!
3. And while I'm dreaming I want a Citation Columbus. Makes the world so much smaller. I was severely disappointed when Cessna put the program on hold. Still hoping there is a chance to resurrect it.

OK here's my three (with a wildcard)

1. Piper Meridian - (a smaller turboprop, get me anywhere I'd want to go, made in the USA)
2. Legend Cub - (I'd say Super Cub here, but most of my time on ground will be spent on #3)
3. Kind of a wildcard, but the third spot in my dream hangar would host a homebuilt plane. I think my first plane would be an RV-7. I'd build it, then fly it for 50-100 hours, then sell it to make room for the next project. Then the cycle will repeat.

I can't help but think back to what an F-16 pilot told me when I asked what plane was his favorite. "The best plane in the world is the one you're in" was his reply.

Rockdog, looks like an aeronautic version of a hat trick to me... :D

Beter late than never (and huzzah for first posts).

1.) Beechcraft A60 Duke
2.) MX Aircraft MXS
3.) Macchi C.202 Folgore

Three is far too difficult!

I'll abstain but I really find it interesting how many people put a Husky on the list. I have always thought the husky to be a very utilitarian airplane and this kind of confirms it. If nothing else, I think that marketing over there is being done right.

In this episode, Jeb talked about getting his airplane "detailed" by a young fellow who lived near his airfield.

I wonder if Jeb could talk a little more about airplane detailing, especially regarding which products to use in cleaning and polishing the airplane?

I have been told that one cannot use standard automobile products on an airplane for fear of damaging the paint and the plexiglass, or causing corrosion. So, which products work well and are recommended by the UCAP pros?

Being Green isn't as simple as we thought it was.
How do we tell which is the aviation "Simple Green" and which isn't?
What are the ingrediants we have to avoid?
There is so much magic stuff out there, we need a famework for sorting through it all.
Remember, not all who wander, are lost.

Good questions (including the one above regarding Simple Green).

If Jack will let me (hint, hint...) we'll tackle this in an upcoming episode.

Thanks, guys!

Here's what's in my dream hanger:

1. Go anywhere (utility): SR-22
2. Family Truckster: Plaitus P-12
3. Aerobatic: Plaitus P-21

Since I can only fit three in the hanger I guess the Husky, Beaver (floats),
and Legacy will have to sit out on the ramp along with my Extra 300,

Are you sure I can't get a bigger hanger?
