Hey guys. Following the trend of favorite aircraft, I am starting a competition to see which prop aircraft A.Netters find the best-LOOKING. Purely on looks. I know I omitted many, but I used the first 16 I found in the aircraft data page on the site. I also only used airliners, and not private or corporate jets. I also tried to use only jets that are still in some (albeit limited) service. I also used the most recent variants of some of them, like the Dash-8.

The drawings came from a hat.

1) Embrear EMB-110 Bandeirante vs. Saab 2000

CruzinAltitude, I need a vote for number 8, or unfortunately I will have to disqualify all your votes!

Some of the contests are VERY close, while others are complete blowouts. Going to be a race to the finish for some.

Oh god, i have started competition mania! (i am now copyrighting the a.netters fave aircraft comp). At least the dash 7 will have a better chance here, instead of being put up against the DC-8 (i am re-thinking the structure of mine).

Anyway...

I'm not sure...I think the coolness of the Dash-7 did it all by itself. The Dash-7 is essentially the Chuck Norris of airplanes. It's best not to question it or get in it's way.
