There's Somthing About Stubby Planes!

Mon Dec 23, 2002 6:09 pm

I don't know about you all, but there's somthing about stubby planes that looks so cool. Is it just me? They look bigger and just look great! All of these -900, -300, -400 are too long! Every plane looks nice, yes, but stubby planes just scream SEXY!

Hmmm.....Well I like the Airbus 'stubby' planes but I'm not to keen on the 747SP.

Can we get something clear about the word 'sexy'...you can apply this to women, but not to aeroplanes. Whether you find stubby women sexy is, of course, entirely a matter of taste.

There's something about stubby planes - I believe it is called generally inferior operating economics to their longer brothers.

Hey SJCGUY- It never ceases to amaze me the amount of over analytical children we have in the forum...anyhow...

I agree, the stubby plane are yes, SEXY, and look great. Especially the 747SP, in my opinion.

You forgot the mother of all stubby planes, the A318. Or any Short Bros. aircraft (Boxcar, 330, 360).

Greetings:

Although I wouldn't describe them as "Sexy" I too really like the stubby apperence of these birds. Maybe it's because I'm not use to seeing planes like that so their look makes me turn my head.

Regards

I like the 747SP, 737-204, and the DC-9-13/14/15 those aircraft are really "cute" surely they are not 'sexy' as you may define them.

Happy Holidays,
Daniel

I think Embraer 135, BAC 1-11 and Avro RJ85 look good too.
