    favorite widebody:
    Boeing 747SP (Rolls-Royce Powered)

    favorite regional:

    my one wish is that aviation partners would come up with a blended winglet mod for the remaining 747SPs flying the world today... that would be awesome! (and prob like 20ft tall)

    Re: Name All Your Favourites

    Fav large military a/c
    C-17 (The KC-10 is a close 2nd)... Hopefully I'll be flying one of these here in a few months...

    Fav trainer
    So far, the T-6A Texan II (only one I've flown thus far (besides the DA-20). I'll be moving on the T-1 Jayhawk here in a week (as long as I pass my formation checkride in the T-6 :| )and can't wait! (it's my first choice after the T-6 followed by the T-44 and then the T-38).

    Fav Fighter
    F-4... Wish I could have seen them fly.

    Fav GA Aircraft
    Gulfstream V (which the Air Force also has which would be an awesome deal to fly one day)
