Beautiful Birds!......

Mon Dec 10, 2001 7:48 am

what is the most beautiful aircraft ever to have appeared, ie the best liveried aircraft type EVER. I have to say that my fave is the 777 in Saudi Arabian colours. Any pics of other faves would be appreciated.

I have to agree with Superfly on his choice...if you take out the winglets, the A340 in a classic scheme like Olympics could be mistaken for a 707 in the mid-60s  Smile

No offense, but I think the AA 747-100 is one of the uglier planes I've ever seen. The AA scheme just does not fit with the 747, in my opinion. I'm so glad they got rid of them.

My vote goes for the bmi A330.
