Quoting GBOAE (Reply 7): Come on! What beats a Concorde for style???????
Quoting Ncfc99 (Reply 9): Nobody knew what style was until Concorde was built.
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.

This was before noise regulations and those stage 1 engines were LOUD!

: Mmmmmm.... There's nothing like a MD-11 love it love it love it! Also the L-1011, 747, 767, 777, 787, A300, A330-300, are sexy a/c Thanks, Aaron J Nic
: For me, the Boeing 747-400 wins hands-down!
: I think that visually, concorde has a most beautiful sculptural quality to it that has never been matched in aviation. It is simply a work of art in m
: I think the Concorde is probably the best. However I think the 757 has nice proportions. I think the best way to show off the shape is the the mostly
