Which aircraft to you enjoy watching climb the most? I know we love 'em all, but is there a particular aircraft that you just have to stop and just watch her as she climbs gracefully into the sky and disappears? For me, it's none other than the MD11 (especially SwissAir and Delta). When she, the MD11, roars over with such grace and beauty, I just have to say to myself "climb baby, climb." I also like to watch the L1011s climb, as well as cool airforce jets. What about you guys?

Has to be any 747 or Concorde. I also enjoy watching 757s and A340s climb.


When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

Without a doubt, it would have to be the 727 as it roars down the runway and uses most of it up prior to lifting off.

Aviation is proof that, given the will, we have the capacity to achieve the impossible.

Yes, it gotta to be 727-200. It has unique take-off method compare to rest of the planes. I like how the 727 pull nose up in the air but keep the main gears on the runway for a little while till it finally get into air. AND keep on watch that plane climbing till then when it is like dropping a little bit then start to climb more into skies. I sure love it.

I saw a China Airlines Cargo 744 take off from DFW the other day, it climbed out very slow and gracefully, i would say the 747.

I love to watch the A340 takeoff..then slowly sink below the horizon as it tries to climb.

OK guys, I am just kidding...
