    People say that you can't compare a/c take-off power because it is reduced, but I think full TOGA power is used when the runway is wet. Is this correct?
    This is rarely the case, they almost always reduce the thrust on take-off to a certain extent. Although a 757 reduced take-off is still very impressive to say the least!

      I hear 757s can be fun (Powerful) Im not a speed freak but I love been stuck to the seat on takeoff and thats somthing the Airbus lacks.

      I just wanna get stuck to the back of my chair and ideas?
      Yeah, I loved the B757 on take off, couldn't move forward due to the force!

          The engines sound good and powerful whey they are thrusted up, but nice and quiet when at cruise level or of course idle for descent. I'm not sure what engines my T7 had - I flew with AA.
          Thanks for the info

            Anything Russian! I've been fortunate enought to go on most of those mentioned above. The 777 experience was excellent, unfortunately the flight wasn't long enough - a quick hop from Penang to Singapore doesn't give you the full experience. Plane only had about 100 pax, but there seemed plenty of power there and depiste us being sat behind the wing it was very quiet. Singapore ailrines IFE looked fantastic, but for 40 minutes they don't turn it on!

              Boeing 707 - Saha Air of Iran would probably be the best bet here
              Ilyushin IL-62 - Maybe a trip to Cuba this year?
              Lockheed Constellation - Airshow perhaps?
              Boeing 737-900 - The only 737 model I haven't flown (except the -100 but it isn't in service anymore)

                        I wanna fly on an A330, 747-200. AN-225 ... The A380 & 787 when they've been delivered and flown abit to make sure the plastic they're made of dosent melt.

                        I've been on 744, A346, 763, Dash8-Q300, 757, L-1011 All Numerous times. & 772 GE-90's!!! The take-off and reverse thrust on the 777 was amazing!

                          It was horrible, dirty, cramped and noisy.

                            Well I'll quite possibly be "to doing" the Saab 340 or Shorts 360, but most probably the ATP when I head up to Stornoway in a couple of weeks on a job.

                            My personal wish list would include the 747 classic or indeed any 747, some of the old propliners such as the DC-3 or Vickers Viscount and some kind of swankily kitted out executive jet.

                            I'd also like to experience 1st class on something like a 744, 777 or the A380 when they come on stream.

                              A330 or Dash 8 for me, or anything than a Boeing!

                              Now is my last 20 flights on a Boeing, and another 2 in the summer!

                                I've had quite a lucky amount of interesting aircraft types over the last few years, but I'd still love to get on a Dornier of any sort and also the Saab and Shorts aircraft.

                                Being a Farnborough local I'd also love the opportunity to fly on any kind of a Biz Jet too!
