So, what's the most interesting aircraft you have been on? By interesting, I mean something that probably no other forum member has and something that might be classed as rare. For example, have you been on an aircraft that has since been involved in an accident and no longer operates, have you been on one with a unique colour scheme or something just as exciting? You get what I mean. Try and post a photo if you can.

For me, this is the most interesting aircraft I have been on... http://www.airliners.net/open.file/592651/L/ ...I don't think I need to explain why. This is the aircraft that flew me back from Thailand a few months ago. The flight was just as exciting. I knew before travelling that my Economy ticket had been upgraded to Evergreen Deluxe. On the day, I ended up in Business Class. I only found out about the history of this aircraft upon my return, about 2 weeks afterwards. It was a bit of a shock I have to admit! :rolleyes:

Mine would probably have to be this one. I'd be very surprised if any forum member had been on this aircraft! Took me on a flight out of Honolulu, back in April this year. Most interesting landing ever, had to be coming down onto water :D

Well, with that criteria, it'd have to be TF-FIX, Icelandair's only B753.

Back in my flight instructing days I flew this AeroCommander 520: http://www.airliners.net/open.file/858670/M/ http://www.airliners.net/open.file/397293/M/ The owner is a super nice guy. He bought it years ago at a Government auction. It turns out that it use to be used as a drug runner and was eventually taken by the US Government. As a reminder of it's legacy it has patches from the bullet holes and the co-pilots air vent is still inop. due to being shot out. Very nice touch. I also have time in a Cessna 175 Skylark which are somewhat rare. There are at least 2 GA aircraft that I've flown that are now scrap due to accidents. I also have time in this EMB-145.....
