I have only flown in usual airliners and all in "cattle class" but my young fella has had rides in the likes of the Skyhawk , Aermacchi , and F18 "Tbirds"and his wife managed an F111 ride . His next but one flight is a BASE off a cliff in Norway .

Being born and brought up as an RAF dependant had its benefits, so here goes  DC3, DC6, DC7, Bristol Britannia, VC 10, Hercules, Vulcan, Victor, Chipmunk, Canberra, Trident, Bac111 and Piper Cherokee. I also had some sitting time in various cockpits including Phantom, Sea Vixen , Lightning , Hunter, Tornado and F16 :D
