What aircraft do I enjoy flying the most

The greatest aircraft I have ever flown is the Huey (UH-1).  As a Huey gunship pilot in Vietnam on my 1st tour, I fell in love with this remarkable machine.  It can do anything you ask of it.  It can take a hit and keep on ticking.  Although the B-model was somewhat under-powered, we were still able to get her into the air on a hot high altitude day at DakTo.  I felt that the Huey became part of me and I could make it dance.  I'm sure other Huey drivers will feel the same as I.

Low Wing Preference

I learned on 7AC Champ, C-150 and I bought a Piper 140. The low wing allowsme to see where I am going in a turn and one can fly some semblance of formation (I am a retired 4-F guy). But in retirement, we bought a Flight Desigh CTLS for several reasons wife liked the high wing and the low wings were too hot. So, there we are a high wing owner with a low wing body.
