Would that be with or without engines?  Might be an interesting glider but you'd have to have one heck of a big airplane to be your tow!  Hehe.

Well, someone already glided a 767, and a fellow USAFA grad glided an A320 to a wet landing on some river, so I guess you could do it... but you'd need one heck of a tow, AN-225 or AN-124?

As for my dream ride, when I become a millionaire, I'll buy one of these and retire... maybe start an aerobatic routine here?...

Avro Shackleton, this is a MR3 version. Photo I took at Newark Air Museum this year.  Bet you all thought I would post some thing like a Spitfire or a Lancaster  ;D

Had a bit of a reputation for vibration and noise but I like it.

Here is my dream ride!

It's based in Chino at the Air Museum (flyable of course) . . . .

Ok ok, I have a new one!

One of my best buddies and true friends who I went to war with, with the Brits, many moons ago is a corporate pilot and showed me his ride today. He now is a corporate pilot and ended up in LA the same time I did. What a great day! And now I want one of these !!!  :)

btw, this is me "venturing to the dark side" attempting to taxi out to the runway at KSMO . . . .
