Ill add one more vote for the "old airplane" smell. That smell was burned into my brain as a 5 year old when Dad would take me flying in the Taylorcraft. Something about dope, fabric, oil, fuel, and leather that is so distinctive.
Last April I tracked that old T-craft down and bought it. I had not seen the airplane in 43 years, but as soon as I opened the door the smell took me right back to that wide eyed 5 year old.
