Up until my current job I have only flown older airplanes.  At the age of 26 I flew a deHavilland Beaver that was manufactured in the 1940s and was 52 years old -- twice my age.  The deHavilland Beavers and Otters I flew were from the 40's, 50's and 60's and the Twin Otters spanned the 60's, 70's and 80's.  Today I am fortunate to be flying new airplanes and, in some cases, brand new airplanes.  Today I flew an airplane with only 66 landings on it -- brand new!  It smelled just like a new car and, for $50 million, one might expect that new car smell.  These aircraft fly in the vicinity of 3,000 hours a year so this aircraft had only been online for a couple weeks.
223 hours and 66 landings on the aircraft.
