The oldest airplane I've flown in AND happened to have parachuted out of was a DC-3 (WWII-era C-47) during an airborne operation at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, during the late '90's.

I have some awesome pictures of that trip...great one of Ship 41 in front of the MLU tower with a Delta B727 going wheels up in the background...now if I could only find that CD!

I was going to go up, but too many people ahead of me puked before it was my turn.

So probably a MD-88.

Yep, you're right. I dunno why I remember Ju33 though.

Tri motor, noisy as hell.
Scared the crap outta my old man!

At 8 I had a good time.

Though I gotta wonder if the old DC-3's "Blue goose" airlines used to puddle jump lake Michigan weren't older.

My stepfather used to own this bird and took me up to fly it a couple of times. My training consisted of "see that peak over there? Fly towards it. Turn around before you hit it." Awesome.

A C130 built in I don't know when. One of its engines quit during the flight, it was quite unsettling.

I rode in the same old bird Shotar did. I was 12(?) or thereabouts, early 1960s. Port Clinton to Put in Bay and back. Neat old plane, the last Ford Trimotor in commercial service when it stopped flying.

A Stearman of unknown vintage. Open cockpit is WAY cool!!

A P-51 Mustang that belonged to an Oil & Gas Attorney friend of the family. Many years ago. The tube type radio behind the pilots seat was replaced by a jump-seat. Don't know which iteration it was but that 12 cylinder Rolls Royce engine made my balls shake for an hour after we landed. Freaking awesome!!

I also got a ride in one of the last Mitchell bombers still flying. It was being used as a retardant bomber contracted to the Forrest Service in McCall, Idaho about 15 years ago. Very cool!

Gun control laws pass because gun owners don't care enough to be heard. They'd rather prepare for the inevitable instead of seeking to prevent it.

1944 DC-3, though I've never landed with it

Oldest I've flown is a tie between an early 50's Aeronca Champ, spent 3 hours in it to get my tailwheel endorsement, or a 1953 Cessna 170B a friend of mine owns, never soloed in it but flown it some.

1929 New Standard. I can still smell the oil and gasoline and wind in my face. The friggin' thing shook and vibrated like an old washing machine on spin cycle. I kissed the ground after we landed.

Video (not mine) of the plane at about the 2:35 minute mark.
