I once flew to Gitmo in the NAS Norfolk CO's aircraft to "import" spirits for an upcoming beach party for the VF Squadron there...

I enjoyed climbing around in the P2V Neptunes and the S2F Trackers.

Favorite aircraft is the Lockheed Constellation. I used to ride my bike down to the Minneapolis airport, sit at the end of the runway in the propwash when a Connie would perform mag drops prior to takeoff. The smell of avgas and oil from a big radial is inspiring and the sound? Nothing like it.
