For the perfect plane, it needs to be long, slim, and I like big engines. This can only be the 757. However, I love planes w/ T-Tails and rear engines. I agree with SESGDL about the shape of the nose.

Greetings:

Its the whole package. Nose, body, wings, tail, and livery. Just look at the Connie, if there was ever a more beautiful they had to take design characteristics from her.
