Your Favourite 'tri-jet'?

Tue Feb 19, 2002 3:11 pm

Hey everyone,

I apologise if this topic has been discussed before but I couldn't find any after some search. Just wondering, what's your favourite 'tri-jet' and why?

Personally I like the MD-11. Flew in it once and it is really comfortable, she gives you the feel of her power during take-off. She looks beutiful in every angle and has a unique cockpit window design, similar to the DC-10 compared to other planes and the cockpit is advanced and modern looking. Haven't flew the L1011 before and I guess I will never get a chance to, but I guess it makes a beautiful and elegant plane and ooh, not to forget the DC-10! Will definately miss them when they are gone.

Take care

I have always liked the Tristar. The S-duct on the Number 2 engine and the curved widshield gave it a smoother look the DC-10/MD-11. I also liked the distinct hum of the RB211's as they spooled up. Sure do miss them.  Crying

I grew up right near BUR, so I'm a Lockheed fan, but sadly enough, never had a chance to fly a TriStar (although I've spent a lot of tme on DC-10's)

Go L-1011!

Favourite TriJet to fly in : MD-11

Favourite TriJet to photograph : DC-10

Sadly in whatever forms, trijets are a dying breed.

I love B727 since I was a child. In fact, B727 and DC-9 was the first planes I could regconize, but I didn't like DC-9 because "it had very little wings" (...) now MD-11 is really atractive.

L-1011. The MD11 close behind. The L-1011 is a beauty and rare now-a-days but, this has been discussed quite a lot!

WEll, i'll have to vote for the MD-11. A very pretty aircraft, but is followed closely by the 727.  Big thumbs up

The 727 with winglets is by far the best looking tri-jet. Shame there aren't more of them.

The only tir-jet I've evr been on are Continental DC-10's....great planes! I love them...As far as favorites go...Its either the DC-10 or the MD-11...I'd have to ride the MD-11 first to say for sure, though...CO's DC-10 interiors were superb!

It's my favorite three-holer.

The MD-11, the most powerful and graceful of the tri-jets.

I flew the DC-10 from JFK-MCO on American Airlines and I also flew the 727-200 on TWA from LGA-MCO, both rides were very nice....a smooth flight on both planes.

But my favorite is the MD-11, I love the way it looks

My favorite is the MD-11, since I've flown on it the most, 3 round trips total. It's really a nice aircraft to fly on. I have a special place in my heart for the L1011 since it was the the first plane I ever flew on (all the way back in 1990).

I've been on 727's many times when I was a kid flying to Florida from New York. I like the MD 11's. I think that is my favorite tri jet.

Because it is do damn beautiful! Because it flies so well! Because it is so comfortable and quiet! Because it has such smooth lines! Because it has 10 wheels and three engines . . . the list goes on.
