Hi folks...title says all. Apologies to Turbolet for borrowing his idea. Please limit your best aircraft to one type/subtype only. Remember, it's all in fun only here folks. My personal best aircraft is the DC-10, one-time flagship of American's fleet. Regards.

I have a fondness in my heart for the good old Seven-two-seven. It looks fast parked at the gate.

Looks best in American's basic bare metal or Northwest's red top and tail.

I'm with DeltaASA16 on this. The little regionals have it with me especially the ERJ135, Pity we don't have them here in Australia. Hmmmm I'm sure there is a market for them here!

American Airlines DC-10. I miss those. They were so cool looking. I like the way the cockpit windows and nose made it look mean. It reminded me of a shark.
