Well I've always loved the 727-200. It's always been a great aircraft, and I'm sorry to see them go into retirement. Aside from that I love the 757-200, the 727's big little brother.

For widebodies, I'm with you on the 744. I am of course partial to Braniff, and I really liked the 727-200 of Braniff II. It was a clean design on the outside and the interior of them were always spacious and clean. I miss those birds! I like the 757 in CO's livery, and the 744 looks great in UA's color scheme.

Hmm, lets see. The 747-400 is my favorite aircraft, and I think it looks best on BA. I like the JAL Dream Express special colors. Favorite narrow-body is the 737-800 for KLM.

There, I have answered it all.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

My favorite all-time aircraft is An-225, and it only had one livery, which was kinda bare. I am waiting for Volga-Dnepr to get it, and it's going to look awesome in that livery.


Money does not bring you happiness. But it's better to cry in your own private limo than on a cold bus stop.

My favorite - of course 737-200.

Best design, I would say 727-200 and DC-10. Their design is admirable.

Best scheme... British Airways (latest with waving british flag on tail) and Delta's latest liveries.

Air India Virgin and Northwest 747-400

UAL and CO 777-200

Northwest, Braniff and PAN AM 727-200(the billboardscheme looks better on a 727 that that 747 because it looks bland and way too much white space. Whith the 727 the billboard scheme doesn't look it's floating in thin air and the scheme goes all accross the fusalage leaving a fair amount of white space. The PA 747's white space even with the classic logo is overwhelming. Looks better on A320s, 727s and 737s and wouldn't look too bad on a 757, 767,777 or A330/A340.

Southwest's California 1 Lonestar, Shamu and Arizona and Nevada 737s.

SAS and TWA MD-80s

Just based on my aesthetic judgements I think both the 777 and the A340 look great.

My favourite schemes:

1. Canadian "proud wings" - great on a 744, would be great if they survived and ordered some 777s;

2. SAS' current livery - great on larger airliners, like an A340.

Favourite narrowbody will probably be the A320, but I like the 717 interior too.

Favourite widebody will be the 2 mentioned above. CO's 777s look great; probably SAS for the A340.

Special livery vote: Finnair's Mummin livery is fun...AF's footballers are cool... but

Are there any Boeings out there with the 7.5HP Briggs & Stratton OHV Premium Winter engine? I saw them advertise these for airplanes on a Troy-Built infomercial.
