I was already thinking of posting this question before the inquiry post on the current 747-400 A.net uses on the top of the page.

What should the next aircraft be?

Should it be another 747-400 with a different angle?....
or should it be the A380?......
or should it be the Sonic Cruiser?.....
or should it be the timeless Concorde?...

I wouldn't want to be the one to make the decision, that's for sure. If I HAD to pick though, I think I'd chose the Sonic Criuser. Basically because it is the next generation airliner of the future.

What would you pick?

(Maybe an actual poll should be taken, eh?)

I still want to know how the NWA 747-400 was chosen for the current top-of-the-page image.

Sonic Cruiser

The A380 looks like some kind of flying conehead. Then again the 747 isn't that visually pleasing either.

I agree with NZ767 to a point. I think the next masthead should be a NW 744 in the Northwest Orient colors. Clean, simple and yet expressive. In other words, I like it the way it is.


Damn, this website is getting worse daily.

I think it should be A380 or A346. For sometime, and then change it again.

747 forever. There´s never been a more pupular air transport, and probably never will. At least for the forseeable future, there´s nothing even on the horizon.

The aircraft at the Top should be the most significant Aircraft of all time. It has to be the 747 over the 737. The 747 being the original and only surviving widebody. (RIP L10-11 and DC10 & MD11)

Still being produced 32 years later and still a great plane it is respected the world over by the airlines and the people as the "Icon" of commercial jet Transportation. More commonly refered to as the "Jumbo" the 800,000 lb humped monster is recognised the world over as the Queen of the Skies.

There is something about that flightdeck perched at the front of the Hump above the lower deck that symbolises something special. The A380 may be bigger but it certainly does not look it, in fact looks silly with the flight deck located beneath the upper deck.

The A380 will never be as significant nor will it be as common throughout the worlds airports, nor will it be operated by as many airlines and will surely NEVER DISPLACE the 747 as the queen of the skies. They may call it the super Jumbo, but there is only one Jumbo the 747.

So leave the Airliners.net Top Page as it is.

Hkgspotter.... check your facts before making brash statements re A/C sales!

Another suggestion might be like this page: http://www.fsnordic.net

Someday, we'll look back at this, laugh nervously, and then change the subject.
