What is the best aircraft you’ve ever flown or flown in?

“The C-17 — it’s been around for decades, being used to support aircrew and transportation of goods to combat zones. It can hold a maximum of 500,000-plus pounds per jet, so why wouldn’t it be the best?”

154th Operations Support Squadron

“The C-130 is the first military aircraft I’ve flown on. We transitioned to the C-17, but the C-130 makes me reminisce of my younger, more carefree, days. I miss what all the old-timers had the privilege to fly with.”

19th Fighter Squadron

“The best aircraft I have ever flown in would have to be a C-130. My first TDY was to Alaska, and I was able to get on a mission where we were tactical flying at low altitude through the mountains. It is an experience I will never forget.”

Juan Colon

“A Boeing 787 Dreamliner. It was brand new and had disco and mood lighting with new seats.”

“A V-22 Osprey. It was such an adrenaline rush. It starts off slow and immediately lifts off the ground like riding a rollercoaster.”

“A P-3 Charlie Orion. I flew on it during my 2015 deployment from Italy to Spain and Iceland and really enjoyed the people on it.”
