I like your signature Misty. I have severals from this master poet genius. Here are just 2 of them...

1) Our love for each other may not be explained
We live in a world where tears must fall like rain

(2) Brothers will desert you when you're down and shit out of luck

It would of course be one of my three all time favourite aircraft
Firstly a pre war Imperial Airways Handley Page HP42 Heracles the world's first four engined airliner
Unfortunately not one of the dozen or so built survived the war
Next I would love my own Concord surely the most beautiful aircraft ever built

All now sadly grounded as they were too expensive to continue in service
In many ways both technologically and aesthetically equalled by the even faster Lockheed SR71 Blackbird
I hope to very soon see both a Concorde and a Blackbird during an upcoming planned visit to New York's Intrepid aircraft carrier museum

That Concorde was some beautiful flying machine to watch take off.

Yes, I would also like to have heard the Concorde take off as well.

Another aircraft would be the XF 84 Thunderscreech. It was a turbo-prop airplane in which the propeller blade actually broke the sound barrier!! It was so loud it's said that it made the ground crew physically ill (even with ear protection). The noise could be heard for up to 25 miles away!

I have always wanted a blimp! The ability to float along like a hot air balloon, but steer it! That would be uber-cool.

One I would build myself.

I wouldn't really trust one built by someone else,despite having flown once.

That's a real problem and prejudice you have there Walter.Because you will never get to Toronto which should be your over-riding ambition unless you trust the products of Bill Boeing Monsewer Airbus or M .Bombardier.
And if you seriously intend building your own aeroplane take heed of the plight of a friend on the eastern edge of PA who now has a garage full of precut components that one day should form a flying machine but first he has to drill a few thousand rivet holes!!
here are three examples of what your plane might look like

the The shell X100 by-plane by the eccentric UK artist Roland Emett

a "flying machine" by yet another eccentric UK artist W. Heath Robinson

and his "the new holiday aeroplane"
