... if i had the money. i saw one land in battle creek, mi, a few years ago
One of them passed through Las Vegas a few years ago, and I caught a couple of takeoffs one day at Heathrow back in the mid-80s. Definitely impressive...noisy as hell, but that's part of the fun. :-) I'd bet a night takeoff would be nifty, with four afterburners shooting out the back.
It's too bad that a flight's $10k (is that one-way or round trip?), though comparing it to coach isn't exactly fair. First class transcontinental on a run-of-the-mill airliner will set you back at least a couple or three grand, if not more.
