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!
f)772beats773 12-10!
g)763-L1011 10-10 L1011 wins by draw
h)343beats707 12-10

AFTER A SECOND DRAW HERE GO THE FIXTURES FOR THE QUARTER FINALS

L1011 vs A330
747-400 vs A340-300
777-200 vs Concorde
A340-600 vs MD11

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.

1) - L-1011
2) - 747-400, no question
3) - (damn this one is hard....................) I'll have to reluctantly go with the 777 because it's more long haul than the Concorde.
4) - MD-11

Cant belive Concorde might win. 777 is a real long haul jet. Concorde is in its own league.

Oh no, the 767 didn't make it  cry  . Too bad.

Anyway, my votes:

1. A330 (second most beautiful plane only to the 727-200)

2. 747-400 (Tough one but I like the 744 flap system, overall the wing looks better)

3. 777-200 (Why is the Concorde here?? Concorde is not really a long-haul plane, she should be in the supersonic jet tournament!!)

4. Really tough one, but my vote goes to the MD-11.

Cheers,
Alex  bigthumbsup

I wasn't in the original posts but if I can join in now my votes would be:

anyone is welcome to join whenever they want

As to the votes, here's the situation

L1011 - A330 >> 8-11

744-A343 >> 17-2 !!!!!

Concorde-772 >> 11-8

A346-MD11 >> 7-12

The 747-400 has largely confirmed its superiority to the A343-300. I would have never thought the fight would be as easy for the 744 who has two wheels into the semi finals.

For the rest, the fight is still pretty tough but not as tight as the preceding round. Anyone who hasn't voted yet is welcome to do so. Voting ends on sunday 9pm CET

Regards

BM
