    Okay...being from Canada

    Domestic DHC Beaver (amphibian or course)

    Foreign Spitfire and DC-3 ( family hauler and spare parts transport)

    Ask me again later and I may think of three different aircraft but for now these are my choices.

    Cheers,

    Jeff

    As much fun as an A6M2-N float plane would be, I think I'd prefer and Grumman J2F Duck. Fly to Alaska with friends and do some trout or salmon fishing.

    I'll go for the more practical aircraft. I love warbirds, but would be afraid to harm them. As for one domestic, we don't have any builders here anymore, but I could take an older Fokker:

    Fokker F.25 Promotor, nice aircraft to take the family out. Unfortunately non in existance anymore:

    As the first one is not possible, I guess this will be the one I would get. Reliable, cheap, dull, perfect to fly to my mothers:

    And one for the fun of flying. Best thing to be in if you love flying:

    hmmm...three aircraft?

    Ok, for the domestic, I'll go for the Martin JRM Mars...because there are times you just need to get away and what better getaway than flying your house to a remote tropical paradise and dropping anchor?

    For imports, I would have the He280. Besides being smaller than it's famous cousin, it was a nimble aircraft and just damn-good looking.

    And for those occasions where a short trip is nessecary, a Bf108 will fit the bill perfectly! :thumbleft:

    Vulcan, to make an entrance.
    But can I have 2 EE Lightning's ?
    I'd need two cos it's 17 miles to work and the first would run out of fuel so I'd need another to get home !

    Not much to choose from domestic industry, so I'd love to have:

    P-38
    Sea Fury
    Su-27, it looks like one mean bird

    Bf 109G
    C-47 (DC-3) - (Greatest aircraft ever built.)
    Do 24 (Most beautiful seaplane ever built).

    Since I am a German/American that should cover both the foreign and domestic spheres...

    Domestic?!?! That's not a long list to choose from.. :(
    DH-82a - Its a British design, but they built them down here, so I'll claim it as domestic.

    DeHavilland Comet Racer - too [email protected] sexy to turn down!
    Junker Ju-52 - Can't say why, but his aircraft has always appealed to me.

    Ta152 - thing of beauty is a joy forever.
    Cessna Skymaster - safety with two engines - take 'the mates' for long range picnics.
    Sopwith Camel - 'live on the wild side' - definately would want a parachute though
