This is in response to the Best looking Airbus Thread.

Boeing should have one too.

I say the 747-400F.

Love the look of the winglets with the shorter deck. Gives a classic design a modern twist.

Coming in at a close second is the 787-8.

No doubt it's the 747. But it is immediately followed by the 777, expecially the -300 series.

There's pretty much just a single Boeing that's mentionable - and that's the B747-400.

For me it's the Boeing 767-200 in SA colors. Theres something about the stubby body that makes it look so cool.

707.

But the most proportional and elegant plane must be the 767, but it also looks abit boring.

All Boeing's planes are really beautiful, except for the 777, the 777 tail is...urgh...

With out a doubt for me, the 777-300ER, not the standard 777-300 as the engines are too small. I love the powerful look about it with the large engines, raked wingtips, the wedge tail cone and the triple bogey undercarriage. Just perfection!

For some reason, I dislike the 747. I guess the large hump is not for me. The freight 747's look slightly better.  duck

Singapore Airlines' Boeing 747-412 are simply stunning. The new font setting makes this beauty look even more gorgeous!

I've been on that very baby like 10+ times and it's always like back in the old days when I was a child and I had my first flight on SIA's 747-412. Simply amazing aircraft!



Singapore Airlines - you're a great way to fly.

1. No matter how much you want it to be, Douglas's aren't Boeings....otherwise I would be throwing a photo of a DC-3 up here.

2. The best looking Boeing wasn't a transport airplane. It was the last fighter they built

Classic, the Stratocruiser - a streamlined design that today looks awkward but was fairly well balanced for its time.

Today my favorite has to be the 757-200. The nose gives it a regal "eagle" look, and its wingspan seems well proportioned to the slim fuselage. Watching it climb out of CLE is always spectacular.



Up, up and away!

I'll say the 747-8 Intercontinental.  Smile

Out of the ones not built, the swing-wing supersonic airliner, it was elegant, as were all supersonic airliners.

For me it has to be either the 707 or the 747. They are both such classics and such icons in aviation. The modern 773 is a lovely bird too however

For my taste, the 757s look disproportionately long and the tall landing gear make them look like a 737 that saw a mouse.

707 is the best-looking Boeing to me.

Best looking Boeing would be a tie between the 707 and 727 !! As they are also the best looking jet airliner ever made !!
Closely followed by the 747 (from 100/-8 maybe with the exception of the SP).
The best looking Boeing still in production would be the 777-300ER followed by the 737-900ER  Smile



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