I think that I'll miss the 727, 757, and especially MD-80 when they're gone. What plane will you miss most, why, and what airline's colours you'll miss them in most?

For me, I will miss the DC-10s and the MD-11s... they are such great planes... a pity they will be going soon... not to forget the L1011s too.

I already miss the 747s in PAN AM's colors but I will miss the 727-200s even more. No mater what the PA 727 has been through hell and back twice very soon for a third time when PA 3 retires them for either 717s or A318s when they get more money to buy newer aircraft to replace the fleet they currently have in which maintinance and fuel costs for these magestic planes must be sky rocketing. Or who knows PA 3 will complete PA's 1 order for the A320s back in the mid 1980s. Right now as soon as PA gets more cash flowing I will predict that PA will eventually get rid of the 727s for more fuel efficient aircraft as well as a money saver in maintinance costs such as the A318, A320, 717, maybe even the 737NG if PA 3 plans to expand westward or even to destinations in Canada and the Carribbean within the next ten years.

I definitely will miss the workhorse of our (Northwest's)fleet...the classic DC-9 wearing our current livery. I will also miss the 727-200 painted in either our livery or Delta's (both interim and new).

MD-80s!!!

I think I'll have to go into therapy when they are gone. Well not really, but I'll be sad. What am I going to do when AS gets rid of them? I'll also mis the 727 and 767 (although its going to be a long time for the 767, thankfully). The 747 classics are sad too. I was sad when the Metros left Horizon.

I saw a shiny red BMW with this plate:

737-200 & 727s: these planes are such workhorses and have done so much for airlines - they also look great from front angles. DC10: so distinctive - I remember I would always look for an "engine-on-top" plane when just a tot, going out to the airport.

I`ll miss the great-looking SAS DC-9s. They are what most people think of when they hear SAS, and even though the NG737 will be a fine replacement, the cozy douglas style will be gone.
Other aircraft: the MD-11, as in my opinion it is one of the best-looking aircraft flying..Too bad they`ll all become freighters..
