Well, I'm not a pilot so these are aircraft I've flown in as passenger. SNJ, C130, B25, R4D, R5D, Constellation, L1011, DC10, 707, 727, 737, 747, 757. Helos- H-13, H-34, HR2S. Most fun was aerobatics in the front seat of the SNJ, The pilot was my boss, a Marine fighter pilot. Scariest was as a simulated casualty on the outside of the H-13.

Looking back on my travels, and after recent events, I especially count myself fortunate to have flown on the 747-400 with United Airlines back in 2004, and the MD-80 or Mad Dog with American Airlines for a cruise. Including these two I have flown on these planes with these respective airlines

737-300/500/700 - Southwest Airlines 

757-200 United Airlines 

767-400 - Continental Airlines

Including the airlines mentioned above, I have also flown on these airlines: 

America West

US Airways

Delta Air Lines

And lastly, the Cessna 172 Skyhawk with relatives in Georgia.

and that’s about it. If I remember any other planes or airlines I will submit an updated post.

Fairchild 227 - (Quebecair) - This is the Fokker F27 made in the USA by Fairchild.
B737-100 (EPA) - they flew in some of the harshest weather and a song was written that Santa followed EPA on Xmas eve
B737-200 (Quebecair)
Bac 1-11 (Quebecair) - soooo noisy
DC-9 (Air Canada)
B767-200 (Air Canada)
