What aircraft have you flown on in real life?

I was discussing this with a friend earlier today - my list ended up being pretty huge after I wrote it all out:

Nice lists. I've flown 152s and Diamond DA-20-C1s. I've only flown on 727s, 737s, MD-80s, and I think a DC-10 or L1011 (I was a kid and I remember being excited about going on my first "big plane" but I don't remember the type).

I have to look back at my records to compile a list. Will do when I can. But first, I have a very pressing question:Ryan, YOU MEAN TO TELL ME YOU'VE NEVER BEEN ON A DC-9 OR MD80!!?? If this is true it is eternally surprising. Very nice topic btw.

Ryan, YOU MEAN TO TELL ME YOU'VE NEVER BEEN ON A DC-9 OR MD80!!??
Correct. Any time I've flown on an airline that has them I've always gotten A320s or 757s instead.

Aww. You've missed out my friend. The view of the flaps and the engine sounds is unparalleled. I love the flaps. They are so unique.

This is the list as far as I can remember. I did most of my air traveling back when I thought all airliners were the same. "Been On" means I've been in the cockpit, not just strolled through the cabin. Flown:Cessna 152Cessna 172Flight Design CT Mooney M20A Homebuilt Experimental STOL aircraft (No idea on the official type designation)Flown On:A320A340-300737-300737-700757-200CRJ-200CRJ-900DC-9DH8CSaab 340Been on:Hawker 800XPGulfstream IV SPFalcon 2000

For you enjoyment Ryan. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0OJgzYc9iAhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyFzeJ56iyYThe first one shows the fabulous flaps and the second one shows some beautiful scenery+fabulous flaps. :Big Grin:Watch them! Thats an order! No backtalk! Come on, pick up you feet. Let's move!EDIT: I'll add that one thing that always amazes me about the md80 is the wicked flap angles. It is like putting down flaps 50 in the md11. They come down like a wall. You almost always hear a lot of power during the approach with the md80.

Wow Ryan :|I never thought you were a real pilot with that kind of flight experience. I always thought you were a young guy who had a music band or something

I love the Barn Door Flaps, don't have to worry about slowing down you go to Flaps 40 and you can just feel the nose push over as they come out. Landing on 19L/R I see in SFO.
