Well, noticing how those are all warplanes, I feel a little awkward posting this, but I have always been a Mooney fan:
Don't feel awkward. Actually, that's, for the most part, the most realistic of possibilities of actually being able to handle an airplane. Unless, of course, most of the posters here join the Air Guard or Air Force.
Here's my favorite;
Good ol' "wun-oh-four-niner-five"
It's my brother-in-law's Cessna 150, and he inspired me to pursue my Private Pilot's license 20 years ago, when I was about you folks' age. I've only gotten as far as my first solo, and haven't completely finished (45 hours dual instruction, 1 hour solo), but I just might go ahead and get my "ticket".
It's his work plane (he works three islands here in Hawaii, so it's his commuter vehicle), and once in a while, he calls me for a "warm up" run. How can I refuse?
As far as military hardware, I'm pleasantly surprised that many of you still love the 'ol "Hawg" (A-10). I've loved it since it came out many years ago as "the ugliest plane in the Air Force". It's beastly and tough.
If anyone cares, I'm involved in MS FlightSim 2004, and fly with Transload Virtual Airlines in the Oceania division. That is, until my FS computer (house comp) burned out it's power supply quite awhile ago. I never replaced the comp (yet), but still fly although offline.
