What are your favorite individual planes?

Some of mine:

N586NK - the sole white-schemed Spirit A321.

VP-BDJ - Trump's 727

N663AM - Americna 757 that happened to be in two of my favorite photos that I took.

N550NW - The NW 757 that was clipped by the NW A319 N313NB a couple years ago. Still in service, cool to see every now and then.

Favorite individual planes for me are always those that I have flown on or rather been flown on myself - for example:

N773AS - which provided a memorable flight from SEA to LAX for me - and this picture: http://www.airliners.net/open.file/812830/M/

I-BIKD - cool departure from an airport you don't get to fly into every other day: http://www.airliners.net/open.file/813087/M/

N14735 - which gave me the opportunity to experience the visual circling approach to runway 29 at EWR

or

9M-MKD - where the crew alowed me to stay in the cockpit for a night approach into KUL airport

ZS-SBK - also allowed time in the cockpit on a landing into FACT a few years ago

N214WN - the new Maryland One - she is stunning - can't wait till I get to see her in PBI sometime

G-BOAB/C/D/E/F/G - the really missed aircraft in aviation today!

and...without being fickle

The reg of the Delta 767-300 taking me from KATL to KPBI tonight - it's been a LONG day after leaving KPBI this morning to spend 4 hours in SC closing on a house - so, whatever reg it is....please let it be a good flight!! :)

Did this a year ago, and I'd like to add to my list.

N310TZ - The plane I got my first Anet shot with, and my first ATA flight with.

N755NA - My first jumpseat ride.

N510UA - A plane I got a photo of in LA that I was very pleased with....and whenever I see it (it usually cuts me off on the ramp), it reminds me of great times.

Iberia A340-600

F-GITH Air France 747-400, first upper deck ride.
EC-IZY Iberia A340-600, first A340-600 ride.
G-BOAG British Airways Concorde, spent two hours in her on the ground at JFK.
G-VGOA Virgin Atlantic A340-600, aircraft in my favorite picture ever taken.

Can't think of anymore at the moment but I'm sure I will later!

Except for the Gulfstream I have many fond memories with the rest. 95SG is the helicopter that Mel chewed me out because with an instructor I learned that houses are the best target to hover over if you want to date a girl. 5PG is simply because I got to take a spin aboard her on a MX test flight when she was almost fresh from SAV and down in SRQ one day thanks to a good freind who flew with them at the time.

Did this a year ago, and I'd like to add to my list.

It was actually 2 years ago!


Mine are:

N610DL (of course!)

N504NK - Just a Spirit, but the photo I have of this plane has gotten me more sales than any other :)

D-ABON - Probably the girliest plane out there...more than Pink Song.

OK-YAK or OK-MEL - CSA, not because of the actual plane, but because almost all of their regis are funny with the OK at the beginning. The second one sounds like Phil "Ok Mel....whatever."

Not that the airplane itself is special, but I always got a chuckle out of the Citation registered "OY-WET" which was the replacement for Citation "OY-JET" that ended up in the water at Atlantic City.
