What iconic aircraft/flights have you been on?

As the title says, tell us what special flights you have been on.

As for me, I have been on
Qatar’s first 787 commercial flight ??? - Doha (I was Young back then)
And my favorite, KLM’s last MD-11 Flight, from Montreal to Amsterdam.

No iconic flights, but I have been on two planes which both crashed about a year later.

Oh, I forgot that I was on an Emirates 777 that caught alight and was put out of service a month before, unfortunately, one fireman lost his life in this accident.

That Singapore Airlines flight definitely put something in my glass of water. I fell asleep at one gate, woke up at another gate 5 hours away and thought we didn’t take off yet.

The world’s longest flight is actually Auckland - Doha.

Service to Auckland on QR southbound clocks at 16 hours 30 minutes, whereas northbound it clocks at 18 hours 20 minutes. This is because of headwinds on the northbound route.

Guys, please stay on topic.

Nothing major really but I flew on the V22 Osprey that delivered Osama Bin Laden to his final resting place.
