"Favorite" is such a weird word. If I had to take a single airplane and that could be the only airplane I could ever fly for the rest of my life, it would be a Grumman Goose.

It's pretty hard for me to pick a favourite-I like them all! :D For various reasons of course. But, if I just had to pick one, it would be the 747, all variants. Especially since I have experienced the -100, -200 and the -400, I just love the sense of dimension it provides, I never get tired of the huge wings, the wide cabin with the high ceiling, just about everything. A close second would be the 737.

My general rant: I will call them blended winglets, not Sharklets; There is no CEO, it's just simply put, an Airbus 319/320/321, or the 320NEO, 321NEO etc. I didn't land IN DAL, I landed AT DAL. On the other hand, I did land in Dallas.

De Havilland Comet 4. Based off of the first and is still the most beautiful airliner ever made.

If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. "
