Nobody Nose The Noses I've Seen...

Sat Mar 30, 2002 11:30 am

For all of you that have either worked directly with aircraft, or just enthusiasts, which aircraft do you think is the most imposing, impressive, or interesting when viewed nose on?

Please pick only one nose. Ahh...that didn't sound right.

Thanks for the laugh ExitRow, I needed that.

Let me flick my finger off........

OK. I think the 747 is the most impressive. Of course this is excluding the 152.  Laugh out loud
