I was always fond of the old National Airlines' Sun King. The main attraction now is nostalgia, I suppose, as my first commercial flying experiences were on National, and I remember being excited when I saw the "sunshine" plane.

RA-85154 you have good taste. Everything about the Tu-154 design stands out, but I also like other t-tails such as the VC10, Trident and Tu-134. The fairings that project forward of the fin seem to make them look more dynamic - the first 134's did not have these but they were retrofitted. Anyone know what their purpose is?

Hard to choose: The Delta widgets, the final TWA colors, the Wavy Gravy, any of the modern or special British Airways liveries, and I love the new United. AA's tail is nice too, and I really liked the "Soaring Spirits" tails. Finally, I'll end my list with Qantas: their tails have always been superb, whether special or conventional (in color, not in terms of T-tail or conventional tail)
