Favorite Aircraft
I'm not sure if this is the correct thread for this post so if it is not please free to move it.

I was just curious what aircraft variant all of you would consider to be your favorite, and if there is a particular air frame that you never cared for but has grown on you over time.

For me I'd Have to say that my all time favorite airplane is the 737-200. I love the "guppy" and I think she looks beautiful in any Livery. A very close 2nd would be the 747-100/200. The classic queen is just simply elegant and inspiring. 3rd place is a toss up between the 707 and DC-10. This is where my question about not really liking a particular aircraft but falling in love with it over time comes in. Up until recently 3rd place would have gone to the Boeing 707 hands down, but I recently have fallen in love with the DC-10 and I have no idea why lol. I just think the DC-10 is a beautiful and a wonderful bird.

Re: Favorite Aircraft
1. Definitely the 747-8 for sheer aesthetics, even though the -400 is the one that I have the most respect for due to the sheer dominance of the skies for 20 years.
2. Probably the A340-600, I have no idea why, I really am not a fan of the dc-8 and the a346 isn't all that different but for some reason, I just really, really like the look of it.
3. Difficult, I used to think the DC-10 was a brute of a plane compared the MD-11 and it is, but I think that's why I like it. Esp in the chrome liveries like AA, TK and SR. It must be the fact that the DC-10 outlived the MD-11 in so many fleets (Like AA) that shows how robust the construction was, even though the MD-11 was similar, it wasn't produced at the right time. So overall, it must go to the MD-11 for beauty but DC-10 for reputation and consistency.

Re: Favorite Aircraft
My favorite have always been the 747. Favorite variant being the 747-400, closely followed by all the Classic variants. The 747-8 is my least favorite. :love::love::love:

2nd place would be the MD-11. :cool:

My other favorites: 777, 767, 757, 727, 707, DC-8, DC-10, L-1011... :love::love::love:

Re: Favorite Aircraft
Hm, very difficult one, since there are so many Beauties.

Classic Jumbo being very much at front, also goes for VC 10, a true Classic. My car even has the number Plate VC 10.

I like almost all Classic Aircraft, not a fan of plastic planes.

Re: Favorite Aircraft
Forgot to add the A330 to my list. Another bird I never had much favor for but has grown on me a lot over the years

Hola, I've returned after about 6 years!

My rather boring and questionable taste:

1. Airbus A321-232/3
2. Boeing 757-200 (when fitted with RB211-535E4/B's of course)
3. Douglas DC-9

Re: Favorite Aircraft
I still like the good ole' Boeing 727-200. A wonderful, noisy tri-jet!

Re: Favorite Aircraft
Bombardier Q400 tops my list of favorite aircraft. Model in my collection is WestJet livery. Love watching YouTube Q400 flights over and over and over.

Second comes the Douglas DC-8. Air Canada livery in the 1:400 collection.

Knocking at the door of the top two is the current crop of CRJ and Embraer regional jets. Have three in my collection. Two actively flying and follow them on FlightAware online. The third tracked in its final boneyard flight to Arizona retirement.

Cheers. arnold
