After seeing the original post (which was posted in 2004), I thought that we should see who would win for the hardest-working aircraft in 2008. In 2 weeks or so we should count the votes and see what plane won. So, to start things off, my vote goes to...

Boeing 757. It has been going strong for 26 years, and it is so versatile. In 2008 it was doing short-domestic hops, coast to coast flights and flying across the pond. It is a very well designed aircraft for all kinds of flying.

Other runner ups include DC-10, 747 classic, and 727 freighters. They fly tons of hours and cycles and we rely on them for overnight shipping. Finally, the DC-9. Northwest has kept them going for over 40 years, and they work hard still.

So what's your opinion?

Quoting Jetplaner (Thread starter):
Finally, the DC-9. Northwest has kept them going for over 40 years, and they work hard still.

Although NW has a few DC-9s in that age group, they've only been operating the DC-9 for 23 years, since their merger with Republic in 1986.

Some 40-year-old-plus DC-8s are also still hard at work as freighters. Douglas built them to last.

Boeing 737.

'The message you were about to post is too short and probably not of any higher value to the topic at hand. You should think long and hard before posting a message in this forum and make it detailed and a valuable addition to the topic discussed.

Avoid posting "Me Too" messages. These are messages that are posted by people who agree to a point being discussed and post a one liner, "me too!", "Good post Jim!", "I disagree" or similar message. This takes up time as readers must sort through these messages which have no real value to the group at large. Any message containing nothing more than a line or two of text is probably not worth posting.

If you have an opinion on a topic, you should in detail express why you have the opinion and what made you come to that conclusion.

Your post should be relevant to the topic discussed. '

The 747 will always be the TRUE queen of the skies!
