If you could fly co-pilot with any historical aviator/aviatrix who would you choose, in what aircraft and why?
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.

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.

We want to know, do you prefer a high wing, low wing or bi-plane? Tell us which you choose and why below.
It's time for those of you who prefer the low wing and bi-planes to be heard, right now the high wing folks are dominating the comments... can we really continue to let that happen?
