Like to see what everyone thinks about this.
I'd like to know everyone's favorite looking commercial aircraft broken into two catagories.
1-Prettiest. For me its the 777.
2-Most intimidating. Most Bad A**. Mine is the MD11 looking head on.

1. For me, the best looking aircraft has to be the A340-500, particularly in TG livery; A330 comes next. The A330 looks great on finals - the angle of its landing gear makes it look like its going to swoop and pick off an E-jet off the taxiway and take it away to its nest for lunch!
2. The most bad*ss looking aircraft ... have to say the IL76! There's something about that aircraft when you say its silhouette on a dark night ...

Ha, so true!
A318, cos it's a lil baby
... ...I have to say A346 - the length of it, the angry head on look, the middle tilted landing gear...& those sexy RRs

Prettiest: Boeing 707
Most intimidating: huh, never really thought about that one...I suppose it would be a toss-up between the MD-80 family and the 777 family--not necessarily because of their looks (I also find both to be rather stylish), but because of the engines that move them. When one of these planes roars down the runway, you know it!
Flying friendly for a while, but is that a widget I see in the rear-view mirror?
