2) Piper Jet - I think that tailfin engine is sexy! Fast and Comfortable.

3) Aviat Husky w/ Anphibs - They're powerful, manuverable, and can land just about anywhere which im a fan of.

Andrew B is oh so close!! Only one mistake.

1) Socata TBM850 - the perfect airplane - great combination of speed and efficency.

2) Piper Jet - just too cool.

3) Aviat Husky w/ Anphibs - I would LOVE to have an Aviat and the floats are a bonus!

Great Minds think alike Mr. Wellington! I've seen your youtube videos and Im a big fan of both yours and rfelty's too. Your airplane is bueatiful! Sure looks like a blast to take a trip in. Can't beat those Huskies though. I think it's great how it looks so much like a J-3 but in reality is so different. Prefect mix of classic vintage and modern power. Those floats just give you another wonderful aspect to those planes!

Well if I had one, I'd probably spend more time just sitting in the hanger drooling over it, but for sure a Staggerwing is on my list.

Hmmm, with no budget or endorsement constraints, a DC-3 and a Blackbird would likely round out the trio...again, I probably wouldn't get many hours in flying but just looking at them does it for me! :D

Merry Christmas, one & all!

Assuming no legal restrictions, my really fast airplane would be an F-18.

My first thought for a fantasy traveling machine was the King of Saudi Arabia's B-747. (I'd have to redecorate though) There would be a lot of places where I couldn't fly it though just because of its size. The BBJ or a G-V would probably be better. I'll go with the BBJ.

My fun airplane would be a Christian Eagle II. I think that it would be cool to have a hot air balloon in the hangar, too. A sailplane would round out the toy chest nicely.

The other planes that came quickly to mind were a WWII Mustang and Bearcat, the new Dornier flying boat.

Ohh Yes Pilot Bill! A P-51 - I almost forgot. Gotta love those fighters. Sure would be cool.

My three airplanes:

1. Go everywhere, not necessarily fast - Husky with tundra tires/floats/skis
2. Go fast, not necessarily everywhere - Cessna Mustang? Any other small jet that would allow me to fly hops to Europe and back to visit my folks there
3. And of course something aerobatic - Extra?

So many planes, so many missions, so many mistresses.
On the list of DEADLY SINS aviation surely has a place.
I am grateful to have one plane that I can own outright, fly where I will, feed within my budget, and maintain when I must.
Cheers to all.
Remember, not all who wander, are lost.
