OK, I know there's a thread going called "What Airliner Are You?" Now, I would like everyone to post a picture of the aircraft that you feel best reflects your personality, or you as a person. For example, a 757 might reflect someone who is slick and powerful, while a 747 might reflect a someone who is classy and lives a luxurious lifestyle.

So asked another way, if you were an airplane, what airplane would you be?

I would be a 767-400 because It's powerful. And i think of myself as being powerful!!!!!!

correct me if I'm wrong here, but I thought the 764 was actually the most underpowered of the 767 models...

Usually, I'd probably say A340-500... but currently (actually for a few months now, and I'm not really sure when that will change again) I feel a bit more like some of the more unfortunate planes in the aircraft accidents section on a.net...  Sad

By the way, if you feel like a military aircraft or general aviation/corporate aircraft better describes you, then by all means, say so!

I'd say a 737-300. Don't stand out from the crowd, just your average, normal person, nothing flashy, just quietly getting on with the job at hand.

Its all a matter of opinion as to what airline defines a person. To me a 767-400 could be the most powerful a/c but to you it might be the slowest. To me the 747 could not be sleek but the 777 might be.

It's all in the perspective of the person and how they define the type of a/c that best represents themselves.

The message you were about to post is too short and probably not of any higher value to the topic at hand. You should think long and hard before posting a message in this forum and make it detailed and a valuable addition to the topic discussed.

Avoid posting "Me Too" messages. These are messages that are posted by people who agree to a point being discussed and post a one liner, "me too!", "Good post Jim!", "I disagree" or similar message. This takes up time as readers must sort through these messages which have no real value to the group at large. Any message containing nothing more than a line or two of text is probably not worth posting.

If you have an opinion on a topic, you should in detail express why you have the opinion and what made you come to that conclusion.

Your post should be relevant to the topic discussed.

I wanted to post a picture of the ERJ but kept getting that message, so I copied it and pasted it below the picture. Just my personal protest against this airliners.net "your message is too short" policy.

I would be the concorde.
Everyone wants to ride me, but only the top class do.
Unfortunately I am now retired, when I should be still speeding across the Atlantic pleasing my riders.
Now you can see me in museums. Crappy end.
