I love the Gulfstream V! It has to be one of the best looking aircraft out there, inside and out!

heh, I have a sneaky feeling you're on your own on that one. But to each their own.

That ghastly copy of concorde would only win a "unstylish" poll by a landslide.... IMO of course  Smile  Wink

Quoting Ncfc99 (Reply 9):

Concorde is, hands down, the most stylish and sexiest plane on Earth! Such a disappointment when she stopped flying. Kind of like a the love of one's life when they leave (or die).

In Concorde's place I vote the venerable 744. That classic hump and her robust size, not to mention it's renowned by all, make her a classic.

But I also think the 346 is a classic beauty as well. Those long thin lines framed by those massive four engines give her the appearance of a beautiful queen being chaperoned by four well-armed and capable escorts.

Couldn't agree more about the elegant VC10. Glad the RAF still flies 'em,
but they look best in BOAC colors...er...colours (circa late 1960s).

I'm a HUGE tri-star fan, however it is a result of my first love, B727. Very "rocketship" inspired. Sleek nose, broad swept wings located slightly rearward, three P&W JT8D-17 engines rearward grouped together like a booster rocket. Man....there's NOTHING like a 7-two launching from a short field. In the good ol' days I would intentionally fly PSA out of BUR due to the climb rate needed to overtake the Hollywood hills and then steep bank to keep out of LAX and Van Nuys TAC., Man....what a ride! This was before noise regulations and those stage 1 engines were LOUD!
