I agree, the 762 is way too short.
Some may say the A318 is too short. I don't see why. It's just a baby  Wink

Definitely the A318. The A380 would also look much better if it would be a longer aircraft.


It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong

ATRs. They wouldn't look as fat if they were longer.

That's why I like the ATR-72 better than the -42.

If the tail were shorter it would look a lot better, I think. We're used to seeing the normal 747 tail, seeing the same overall shape with a tail that's so much bigger makes it looks like the SP is much more of a shrink than it actually is.

I nominate the 737-600 and A388.

The 737-600 just looks odd, compared to the other models. Then again those Yaks 42 from the USSR is a ugly looking thing.

The DC-9-10 also looks a bit stubby.

But the Jetstream 31 takes the cake.

The 737-500 looked a bit too small for me. 720's are in there too.

I only work on the A333 and A343, thus to me, an A342 looks too short. It is just not enough fuselage for 4 engines no .

Notoriously hard to fly IIRC.

I'll agree on the 762 and even the A380 in its first release.

I know what plane isn't too short though. The A340-600 is too long if you ask me. Bigger Faster Longer Farter! (yes, misspelled on purpose.)

As if the A319 wasn't short enough. They went and made it worse.

The A346, 739, 773, 764, and CRJ-900 are all way too long.

Wonder if anyone has made a flying fuselage with no wings (not being a rocket)?

27 AlexPorter : The DC-9-10, A318, B762, B736, and IMO even the CRJ-200 are all a bit short. A long one that no one has mentioned yet surprisingly is the B753.
