AND THE WINNER IS.....747-400


747-400 beats A330 28-17 !!!!!!!!!

There again 747 has had a pretty easy win and has confirmed itself as the real Queen of the skies....well done 747-400

After 727's victory in the short haul torunament and the 757 in the medium haul, boeing reigns supreme !

As it should be.

But Roots, why stick in an image of a Garuda 742?

Cheers

Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.

I had typed in 747-400 in photo search ....so it should have naturally given only 744's. so i picked up any random pic and an hour after i posted the thread noticed it was a 742....and couldn't edi anymore...too bad

In my opinion , the A330 is still the most graceful bird flying in the sky after then the 777. :P

Cleary the opions of members have proven that the B744 is the one and only Queen of the Skys, now if only everyone else would get over that fact.

The B-747 is more than the sum of her parts. She is the heart and soul of commercial aviation.

Long live the Queen if the skys, the Boeing B-747!  Smile

What fact is this ? Everyone has their own entitlement of their favourite long haul aircraft. Some may prefer the A380 to the 747-400. Gosh , please respect other's opinion.

This was a foregone conclusion, there was no way a twin jet was going to beat out the greatest jetliner ever to fly, the 747 paved the way for modern wide body's and changed the way the public was able to fly....-100, -200, -300, -400...all Series are great and hopefully.....at Paris....-ADV will be launched it would be a horrible day that they stop running the 747 line

LONG LIVE THE 747!!!!!!!!!  airplane   yes 



long live the 747!
