    hey fellas. I thought I'd start a thread for us telling the real life airplanes we want in 3 categories fantasy, realistic fantasy, and realistic.

    Realistic: meaning a plane that we realistically could own. for example. GA or light sport planes
    Fantasy Realistic: meaning a plane that could be a little out there, but still a realistic obtainability
    Fantasy: a plane that is way out there and you'd never get unless you won the lottery. the sky's the limit (pun intended :big6:)

    mine would be:
    Realistic: Piper Cherokee/Warrior/Archer
    Fantasy Realistic: DeHavilland Beaver
    Fantasy: Lockheed Constellation (Specifically Pima Air and Space Museum's C-69 Constellation. the only one in the world)

    Piper Cub or Cherokee probably. Perhaps a Stampe SV4, and a P-51D, with second seat and luggage bays were the guns and ammo would be. Why a Mustang rather than a Spitfire? Simple, even with a second seat, it would still look the same externally ...

    I figured, that if I'm that rich that I can afford and fly these, I'm in no rush and people can bloody wait for me! :lol:

    Right, where do you want to go next guys?

    PS. Is there room for JV44's Fw 190D-9 'Red 13'? ;) :lol:

    I could not afford any aircraft - unless you count scale models?
    But given a free shot.
    Gloster Gladiator.
    F4U Corsair.
    Spitfire - any Mk.

    Can see for my inner eye, or whatyacallit, people tooling with Cessna's, Piper's and whatever and I roll out my spanking new JV44 Fw 190D-9 'Red 13', of course with a proper engine, no Merlin etc....for a wee flight after work on a sunny Friday afternoon, life would have been good! :lol:

    Btw, times like this, how do you do with the cross on the tail, are you allowed it, does it make a difference if it's an historical and restored airframe or a newly built one?

    Paint it as a Hungarian or Romanian Bf109. That would really confuse them.
