I haven't been in a plane since before 9/11, i'm sure it's a different experience now. i was always leaving someone, so most of my flying times were emotional to say the least.
My favorite planes are the small 2 seaters, Cessnas, I believe. went flying a few times out of Teeterboro airfield. there were 4 of us in the plane. i don't really grasp how planes actually fly, but it is a marvel to me.
