Ladies and gentlemen, here we go for the 3rd part of our favourite airplanes tournament. This time is the heavy weight championship, the one many have been waiting for. After the victory of the 727 for the short haul and 757 for the medium, Boeing planes are winning it all the way ! Will the trend continue? Well its to you to decide. Here are the fixtures (NB The A380 doesn't yet qualify for this tournament)

1) A340-500 vs A340-600

update on results:

A345-346 >>8-10

MD11-A300>>20-0 !!!!

Concorde-TU144>>19-1

A330-DC10>>12-8

744-742>>19-1

772-773>>10-10

763-L1011>>10-10

343-707>>10-10

A330 seems to have set a wheel in the Quarter finals whilst the MD11, Concorde and 744 only have to wait the end of the other fixtures to check into the Quarter finals.
Look, 3 fixtures have a perfect tie 10-10...wow never thought this tournament would be so exciting

Come on guys get voting!!
There are 3 perfect draws. You have till tomorrow to make a winner out of all fixtures

The ties so far are

772 vs 773

763 vs L1011

343-707

all 10-10
If they are still tied up I guess it will be a draw that will determine who will move on. As I don't particularly want to proceed like this like this it would be cool if those that have not voted yet do so....thus each airliner will qualify in a loyal manner . Quarter finals start on Wednesday already

Cheers mates
