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


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

2005-06-27, 06:00 PM
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.

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."

N76DT - Trump S76
92-9000 - VC-25A

I can't believe nobody mentioned VH-OEJ yet...

2007-07-13, 04:49 PM
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.

2007-07-13, 06:01 PM
Haha! That IS funny.
