Errrrm probably the Boeing 757. Nice looking aircraft, easy to handle and fly but still fairly modern. Wink

Opensky Northwest 747-451 is by far the best default or add-on plane for MSFS 2004. It has great textures and controls to out fly any plane it is but up against. (Execpt for the FA-22)

RM, what do you do with that aircraft? Like what kinds of flights and whatnot do you take it on?

There are times that I just take off, get to a desired height and leave the computer for a few hours. I come back, check where I am, look for a decent airport and put down.
I can take it anywhere, it can and will land on a dirt road and take off again, it's an amazing "virtual craft" as amazing as the actual one was and still is after all of these years.
Aircraft (like cars) such as that come along very seldom, the B-52 is like that, it keeps going and going, it has seen many wars and no, the B1 doesn't replace it, that was the biggest waste of 100 billion $ I've ever seen.

My favorite in Flight Simulator is the Grumman Goose, I found it while looking for a decent Albatross(my all time favorite real airplane), and the Goose flies great in the game. I'm a big softy for sea planes.

For a commercial liner, the 737-800. I love how it looks, and it's versatile. It can show up at the unimproved airports, or it can sit pretty at O'Hare.

For a little plane, the Fokker Twin Otter on skis. Super powerful plane with a crazily low stall speed, you can't beat that!

But nothing beats Helicopters in my eyes. I love the Bell 206L4, although it's not much in the game. My best helicopter is the Sikorsky S-61...getting back to that whole sea plane thing!

Now my favorites are the King Air 200. But my always favorite was the Cessna 172.

I love the 767 .... and all who sail in her!

The best payware version is the Level D 767 ( www.leveldsim.com )

All of the four planes that i signoff with are my favourites. My favourite out of them all would have to be the Atlas Air 747-400. It looks great, fly's well and was small enough for someone like myself who has a dialup internet connection to download it without hanging around for hours.
