    I love anything that flys, and am always interested in new, or old, obscure, or not so obscure aircraft. I'm particularly interested in what other people think! What tickles your fancy?

    I'll start off by saying one of my favorite airplanes is the Republic P-47D Razorback. Affectionately known as the "Jug"

    Too many choices.....Corsair, spitfire, P-38, P-47, and ofcourse, the Mustang. All had their own very unique aproach to the job at hand.

    Soon....
    Depends on the type of flying I want to do.
    For travelling, Cessna Conquest II.
    For knocking around on late summer afternoons, Husky or Maule on amphibious floats.
