Hey guys,
I just want to get your opinion on the best looking aircraft type and the best livery on an aircraft.
Let us know what you think.
Boeing Boy.

BA747-436, they should have kept a couple of the nice ones, but the FAA said it was too confusing to other aircarft to figure out which airline it was. O well

I dunno, there is something about the colours and font of the old CDN paint that I like. I even prefer it to world tails. The new one is very nice too though.

Yeah, i agree. BWIA's new scheme is great, and so is VS's. But i am a bit surprised to hear that no-one liked the two "World Tails" that i suggested.
Also the QF ones!!!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
I mean United???? Are you having a laugh? It's alright but nothing out of the ordinary. If we are looking at schemes like that then there would be no doubt in my mind that Cathay Pacifics new scheme kicks!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

You wanna see a smart class tail!
Just have a look at a Tupolev Tu-154's tail!
They are not my prefered aircrafts and I know they are always dirty but look the shape.
