I have been a plane spotter all my life.

I have never admitted this to you lot on here before.

And I have to say, Russian civil aircraft make me horny!! Watching a Tu 134 or 154 take off and land is just fantastic.

Anyone else with this fettish?

al. :D

Not at all off topic, I like military too.

German WW II aircraft are real passion as well.

I've seen the Su 35/37? at a show before, unbelievable aircraft and pilot.

Hmmm, yeah, they may make you horny watching them but its not until you fly on one that you realise it might possibly be the last flight you ever make!!! Had the misfortune to fly on a Balkan Air TU154 from Manchester to Bulgaria back in 2004, I was really scared we were gonna die and I worked in aviation maintenance for a few years and have seen quite a few things that would make a lot of people question whether they should get on a plane or not, but honestly, if I could have got off that Tupolov I would have! :shock:

I'm not a plane spotter, but do love the big jets.

A freind and I used to go to Heathrow just to watch them land. Awesome on a windy day. Went to St Maarten on my honeymoon too :D

Have you ever seen this http://www.flightradar24.com/ ?

It can get quite addictive :shock:
