What Is Your Favorite Airliner?

Tue Mar 12, 2002 1:57 pm

I was just curious as to what everyones favorite airliner is. No matter what company post it here! For me it is the MD-80. To me the MD-80 is a sleek majestic airplane. Apologies if there is an older post like this, couldn't find one though.  Smile

It would have to be the first jet I flew on..... the 737-200. Sure the newer 73's are nice but I just love the whine of those P&W engines.

If I got to add in a medium haul airliners it would have to be the A310,(its sort of a medium-long ranged airliner) I love the whole stubby look.

Oh boy! In chronological order,
DC3 (rode turbulence like the QE2 rides the waves)
Vickers Viscount (soooo smooth and sleek)
707 (made international travel affordable)
727-200 (my favourite rocket)
747-400 (still Queen of the Skies)
...and in time I guess I'll add the 777, but Hall of Fame doesn't happen overnight!

The good old-fashioned 727-200. It was the most common plane I flew on in the 1970's. I still love to hear them as they take off!!!
