The first round of the long haul plane tournament is finally over. Thanks for the many people who participated. We have a winner for each fixture except for the 767-300 - L1011 . Since there was a perfect draw 10-10 I drew one of the names out of a hat ! The one that was first drawn out 3 times won it. Too bad...my beloved 767-300 was only drawn once. Thus the L1011 wins by draw. Lets hope it wins more loyally next time
Here are all the results of the fixtures
a)A346 beats A345 12-8
b)MD11 beats A300 22-0 !!!!!!!!
c)Concorde beats TU144 21-1!
d)A330 beats DC-10 12-7
e)744 beats 742 21-1!
g)763-L1011 10-10 L1011 wins by draw
AFTER A SECOND DRAW HERE GO THE FIXTURES FOR THE QUARTER FINALS
A330 -- never liked three holers
747 -- this is a no contest
Concorde -- toughest match up. love the 777, but the concorde is the most amazing technical acheivement other than the moon shot
A340 -- never thought it would be a bigger success than the MD11, but it has been.
