People say that the Boeing 707 look like it a fast jet. This got me to thinking, what are some of the fastest looking sub sonic jetliners in the world?

My vote

727
707
747
CV880/990
VC10
L1011

Hi!

The fastest subsonic airliner was the CV990!!! It was called by Cap. Rudolfo "Rudy" Bay from Spantax, a huge CV990 operator, "The Maserati of the Skies"!!!
That bird could fly the maximum speed of 990 Kph at 22.000 ft. I think the next one was the Boeing 720 that could fly at 972 Kph.
Regards

Don't forget the little hot rod of the 60's...the Convair 880.
