I would live to be able to afford a citation, but all I can afford is a Lancair IV
It’s sometimes called a poor mans jet.

@Judi it nice choice to pick Lancair IV, or you could afford to one of two aircraft: SR-22 Turbo or Vision SF50 those are one of my best experience to ride.

– Airbus a380
SF Mara or the ME262

@MasterAir16 ; The Vision looks amazing. Don’t tell my husband!! He has been threatning to sell the Lancair, and I know if he did he would start shopping again right away.

My favorite military aircraft is the Consolidated B-24 Liberator It could carry more bombs and fly further than the B-17 because it had the now famous “Davis Wing”. It is true that the B-24 is butt-ugly. Some called it the flying cow but the B-24’s and the brave men who flew them greatly helped to end WWII.

I like the F-35/JSF. It has VTOL and supercruise.

Blackbird. I also have a soft spot for the f 14 tomcat.

@MasterAir16 I used to have them fly over my yard all the time, sometimes barely above treetop level. Now, where I used to live had a clearing that could be and was used as a navigation waypoint, so there were times where I would have 2–3 of them circling my yard either waiting for their wingmen or just messing around. And they were nice enough to wave back :D

Of course, something about having a flying GAU-8 cannon or four buzzing your house can sometimes be a little unnerving if you think about what they could do…

This is hard for me. I’m torn between: F-15 Tomcat, A130 Spectre Gunship, and the A-10 Thunderbolt…...I can’t decided. I think I’ll just pick the Tomcat for #1, the Spectre for #2, and the Warthog for #3. lol
