What full size aircraft would you own if you could?


I realize there's a few full scale pilots already here, and I suspect some of them already own their favorites, so this is a "what if" thread.

Mine? it's a tough call, it would probably be something very vintage. I'd really like to own a 1914 AVRO Arrowscout. It could be somewhat practical for me as we have the covered space to keep it in , and it's wings fold so it could be trailered to a local airstrip. I'd think the challenge of flying something powered by rotary engine would be a real kick, and I love the lines of this particular biplane.

Cheers

No pilot's license, but a Beaver on floats would be cool.
Next choice, the homebuilt Murphy "Moose"

Lots of favorites here. Top of the list would probably be a Hondajet

After that, I'd like a Staggerwing Beach.
An Extra 300L would be good too.

Oh well now, since folding wings are a consideration, I think I wanna be the coolest kid on the block. I think I'll fly low over the neighborhood at Mach 2 and scare the livin' outta the neighbor's cat ! .......

A Mosquito, either British or German, or maybe a PE-2.


Or a Caproni S21 SJ.

On second thought, make mine an Apache.

Honey, I'm driving the kids to school this morning, OK?

Theres a lot of jets I like.. hornet, a10 f16, f22, su-22 and so on.. something draws me to the mig-21.. must be something about going up in a tin can at mach 2 but, I think a vintage plane like an eindecker or similiar would be much more practical(If having a full size could be practical )..

*Fokker D VII

Modern design and construction though, with modern engine as well.

I'd have it done in a really cool lozenge pattern too. Purple, orange and black.

Just put these pics on another thread, perhaps not what I'd like to fly,(a B25, any model), but more realistic.
