I found this carved into a rock when out fishing last night.

Bearing in mind Air NZ have operated or currently operate 737's 747's 757's 767's and 777's...what do you reckon this one is?

Or (Airbus fans) is it futher evidence that Boeing uses stone-age technology  Wink

Quick, before 2H4 turns this into a contest!  Wink

Looks like a 762 or 763: 2 engines, 2 wheels on the main gear when seen from the side, slightly fat...

I would say a 762.

And if 2H4 contradicts me, well, he's wrong  Smile

The tail looks like a 767, and judging by the body proportions I would say a 767-200.

Which shows what a very accurate piece of grafitti this is...better than the usual badly drawn penises and boobies one tends to find...

Hmmm, the rather pronounced curve in the fuselage is slightly worrying though.....maybe some severe turbulence?

I'd say there is the rough outline of a face on the tail, which reminds me of Alaska Airlines, but the plane itself certainly looks like a 767.

you know, some archeologist of some post-apocalyptic generation is going to find this rock atop a mountain somewhere and conclude that it was the shape of an extinct animal commonly hunted by 21st century humans.

Oh boy, a contest based on A.netter artwork......now that would be interesting....  Smile

Here's some artwork from an 8-year-old 2H4, drawn back in second grade:

Nice one, I bet you "outsmarted" your 2nd grade teacher!

Reminds me of my childhood years, maybe I should go dig up some old stuff.

LOL! Yeah I did stuff like that in 2nd and 3rd grade all the time. The teachers were starting
to get concerned because all the "creative" work I handed was about about airplanes.
the rest of the kids in the class wanted a fire truck or a pony,
I wanted a Dash 8.... :P

I went through that phase in the third or fourth grade. The steps to my family's basement was papered with side-on drawings of planes. I don't know if my mum saved any of them, but she framed another drawing I did as a kindergartener (about 1982) that turned out to be kind of eerie after 9/11.

After a trip to NYC, probably across the Veranzano Narrows bridge, I drew a panoramic view of Manhattan from the south with the WTC and Empire State Building featured prominently in the skyline. As a detail, I put British Airways jumbo jet in the sky about to fly over the twin towers. I certainly didn't think about a jetliner crashing into the towers then.

I think we must have been picking up my grandmother at JFK, and apparently the whole experience made quite an impression on me.
