An old Cessna tail dragger that belonged to the guy next door. No idea what year it was, but I was only 5 the first time he took me up in it.

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.

Delta Air Lines DC-3 Ship 41...absolutely awesome restoration. Flew from JAN (Jackson, MS) to MLU (Monroe, LA-the birthplace of Delta Air Lines.) 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!

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.
