Hi all,

I am just interested in seeing what people think of a/c these days and what there favourite aircraft are?

This has been done many times before no doubt However, now is now and I want to know what people think now not before the 777 first flew!

So everyone join in a tell us what a/c you think is the king of the sky (Queen also allowed)...

Thanks,
Aaron J Nicoli

My favorite aircraft would be a toss between the McDonnell-Douglas DC-10/Boeing MD-11 and the Rolls-Royce equipped Boeing 777.

The aviation buff and historian in me says Concorde (G-BOAC to be specific).
The passenger in me says 767 (only 1 in 7 seats is bad), big enough to feel spacious, small enough that you don't feel like you're in a cattle car!

For me without question it has to be the A340-500. Magnificent metal with great performance.

For all you anti-airbus folks out there my fave Boeing is the 757 combi - these planes were so good they killed off their own line!

Absolutely my friend!!
I had the joy of visiting "Speedbird 1" G-BOAC at MAN in June. It brought tears to my eyes. I refuse to believe that this wonderful lady won't fly again.
I urge anyone to come and see her if you're in the UK.

Best Regards

For myself, it has to be the '57. The distinctive sculpted nose (the '87 will be a close second in terms of styling), the mechanical simplicity (not everything has to have a $#%@en wire attached to it), the handling characteristics (well, during high speed taxiing that is), the excellent mtce documentation (mm,ipc,srm clear and uncomplicated) and it never broke (compared to others) and lets not forget the mindboggling bags of power strapped under it (hence the HIGH, in high speed taxiing). Granted, I haven't touched one in almost three years, so I'm yammering on about it from memory. But nice memories nonetheless. The Tristar, however, provided many, many hours of instructional hands-on learning. It had grace in the air that no other could compare.
