What is the weirdest airplane you've flown

Post by galaxy » 10 Apr 2017, 23:02

Mine was a Flying Boxcar of the Belgian airforce . It was my first flight ever in the late 1960 s . Very noisy , very uncomfortable seats , a few little windows , but it was unforgettable and we enjoyed it .I was a young aircadet at the time and we had the opportunity to fly with.

Nice topic that you opened, galaxy.

I had a similar experience, but with a Belgian Air Force Alouette II helicopter. I was acting as an artillery observer over the training field of Suippe in France, a former battle field of WWI.

The pilot wanted to show his skills and he flew in the same way as the helicopters of the movie "Apocalypse now". I did the flight twice, and during the first one I was almost sick, but the second one was very exciting as I felt much better.

Also C-119, DC-3 'weird' because it's a tailwheel airliner & SeaKing (twice), completing the series of the very noise, shaky ones, and Zeppelin NT as the very smooth one and you can stick your head outside :-)

It must be this one: A Cessna A185E Skywagon Seaplane that I flew from the lake in Inari to the river in Ivalo...

Probably a TU104 a loooong time ago. As Coluche would have said, the engines were quite audible!

A Grumman G-21A Goose of Coastal Pacific Airlines round trip from Port Hardy ( Vancouver Island ) BC Canada in September 2009 with several water landings ( and take-off's of course ) and all this in a cockpit seat ! Apart from delivering urgent material to remote and by land unaccessible areas we dropped off a nurse and picked up an indian chief along the way ! An unforgettable and awesome experience !

No, it was a joy flight :p
The sound was amazing it's like a ride with the tube but outside the train.
