Jet: Phantom
Prop: Mustang

I saw/heard my first P-51 Mustang at an airshow in Livermore Ca. The rasping, snorting, bucking sounds coming from that engine as it idled down the taxiway just sent shivers up and down my spine.

As an AF brat I grew up around F-4 Phantoms and remember well the Blue Angels and Thunderbirds coming to Guam to do demonstrations as well as all the camoflauged birds coming through on their way to/from Vietnam.

C-208 for bombing around the local area

G5 for those longer trips.

1. ;a Some sort of cross between the F16 and the Zivko Edge 540 (they say it makes the Extra 300 feel like a Cub)

2. a P-51 Mustang.

1. Aviat Husky
2. Citation X
3. Composite P-51 - DOES ANYONE know this aircraft? It's a 3/4 size kitplane...GORGEOUS. I'd love to trick it out with an EVS HUD and GNS 1000 (the new Garmin Unit).

Well, someday when I'm rich and have lots of free time, I'd like to build a Lancair IV-P (http://www.lancair-kits.com/Lancair_IV.html) . There's just something about cruising at 330 mph at FL240 in a single-piston that seems really cool to me. :cool:

I was just down at my field, and stood directly behind a 2003 Cessna Citation CJ while it was starting. The warm wash of Jet-A exhaust on a chilly morning is just...well...

Anyway, I'd like to have one. Single pilot (yes, I really want a G500, but what about a mutiny? Having another human have to agree to go flying in MY plane is a bit unnatural) got off in about 1800' with fuel for Nebraska.

A new CJ for me, please. I'll get back to you after I decide on the rotorcraft I want to get to the airport. :)

Oh..toss in an amphib Grand Caravan with executive interior & pod.
Thank You, Santa.

AN-2 Colt

Those would do me well for a very long time.

If it were just 1, it would have to be a Caravan. Reasons? Single pilot, dependable turboprop, good on any reasonable runway, fast enough, minimal payload issues.

Bullman
12-09-2003, 15:38
Man, the list is long, That 109 Gustav from a few posts up wouldn't be too bad at all. A Mustang? A Corsair? A Thunderbolt? A Spitfire?, I could go on and on, because any of those high performance fighters really float my boat. I think for my top pick in the radial catagory, and it didn't see WWII, I would love to have a Grumman Bearcat.

If money is no object, P51. If I am being real an RV-4 kit, I flew one once and loved it. What I can probably afford Aeronca Champ.

Well, since we are talking about our dream plane:
-Either a Husky A-1B or Top Cub 180, or Beaver.
-An R-44 Raven II, at least to start in helos with. After 500-1,000 hours in that, move up to an A-Star, EC-130 or 407.
-Piper 6XT for cross-countries.

Dan, you might be able to get a 407 cheap. The rumor is the fatality last week might have been the power turbine wheel. Don't know why the pilot didn't enter an auto (about a 15,000 hour pilot). The bird was tore up so bad the pilot was found on the water's surface, ship sank.
The 407's are "standing down". I think it's a company grounding, not FAA. The bird was grounded a couple times, because the TR was chopping off the tail, when I was flying it.

What I'de like to own.

Fixed wing, an F51 Mustang

Helicopter, a Bell 206L3
(it's not the fanciest helicopter, but it kept me out of the water for 29 years;f )

Peeto, I would have to agree, although I have already submitted my favorite sound, I think listening to any WWII warbird, be it twin allisons, or whistling death....well, it would give me some wood.;f

My wife was looking over my shoulder at the name of this topic, and she says that she likes it when a jet flys over, whooooooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOssssssshhhhhhhhh She is sorta right I guess. Still like pistons better myself.

A BEDE-10. Read about it in Popular Mechanics when I was a boy. Don't know if they ever built them, but I love the idea of a tandem-seat personal fighter jet. Supersonic for two.

Wouldn't an F-111 qualify as a tandem (side-by-side) supersonic fighter jet for two?

Modgun, that picture is absolutely beautiful. Where was it taken?

My dream boat is a Cirrus SR22 with the new panel and tks. I start twitching and get facial tics every time I see one. Thanks to Uncle Don and our 23% attitude adjustment, guess this is one dream that will have to wait for a while.

While I was at Front Sight a guy in my class owned one that was about a year old. Told me he flight plans an honest 160 kts and 14gph but typically does a little better on both issues. Wow.

There was an SR-22 on display at Kitty Hawk when I was down there. The sales guy was only letting a few people sit in it, but it was pretty quiet at the time, and he had applied to work for the airline/fbo I work at, so he gave me the grand tour. Some of the stuff those PFD's can do is amazing. I asked if he would take a check....lol

Later on in the day, there was a fly over by an SR-22, and I was VERY impressed at the speed.

For me it would have to be a Beech -18 for the SUV functions, and an L-39 or a ATG Javelin for the sports-car role.

Had a chance to fly the Javelin simulator at AOPA - much peppier than the PA-28's I usually fly

If speaking in realistic terms, I'd say a Lancair.

If speaking in hitting the Powerball lottery terms, I'd say a P-51D, a Caravan on floats and a C-X.

Wow, did you look at the spec sheet on that Thunder Mustang. The performance spec's meet or exceed that of a real mustang in most every category except service ceiling and gross weight.

Piston - P51D Mustang, Spitfire, P40 Kittyhawk

If it can't hover, don't bother!

So Many Choices, So Little Flying budget.

Lets See, got to have one to get around in, and one to have some fun in.

Get around in - Probably a Cessna Skylane Turbo - Nice stable IFR Platform, good (not great) speed, and nice fuel economy, good for short strips, good range. A nice little commuter.

Have some fun in-
Just can't narrow this one down
Super Decathalon?
Grob Bavarian (180HP Inverted Version)?
Extra 200S? (Got to have that extra seat to take friends up. If you can't show off your latest under the bottom spin entry, what good is it?)
P-51?
And of course, in the world where dreams come true: F-16

So Many Choices, So Little Flying budget.
