Default Re: If you could own ANY aircraft, what type would you own?

It would of course be one of my three all time favourite aircraft
Firstly a pre war Imperial Airways Handley Page HP42 Heracles the world's first four engined airliner
Unfortunately not one of the dozen or so built survived the war
Next I would love my own Concord surely the most beautiful aircraft ever built

All now sadly grounded as they were too expensive to continue in service
In many ways both technologically and aesthetically equalled by the even faster Lockheed SR71 Blackbird
I hope to very soon see both a Concorde and a Blackbird during an upcoming planned visit to New York's Intrepid aircraft carrier museum
