Commercial: I tend to like the L1011 in an ad with disco music and people partying in the lower deck lounge  8). But actually I like the B77E the most.

Civil: It must be the Aerostar, the best ride out there.

I had enough BA points to fly Concorde but I was to slow and lost the BA miles as I did not fly BA for 2 years, yes I know EPIC FAIL :-[

Due to the fact nearly all I now about civil aviation is based at Airwaysim, it's the DC-10(-30ER). The only aircraft that has absoultely no alternative to it for a decade.

Honestly, Airbus 330-2/300 and B777-300ER. Just excellent and perfect for business

I've got a real soft spot for the Boeing 737-3/4/500, plus the TriStar which I flew on with Air Transat way back in August 2001 at the very end of the good ol' days when you could still go into the cockpit! Damn I wish you could still do that... :'(

I know my turn has gone already, but I would like to add the Cheyenne 400LS to my list of fantastic airplanes. Looks really really good and performs amazingly.
