I have read, with great interest, the A vs. B wars on this site and I only have one thought to add...
Why do y'all fight about it?
I get equally jazzed when LFT 440, and currently AF36, with A343's and KLM 661 and various cargo (747's) flights come in to IAH
. My opinion is: the more heavies, the better!
I just don't understand why y'all argue as to which airframe is stronger, better, cost-effective, etc. When spotting any of these birds is a great event for me.
I am lucky that I get to see the "mother of all heavies", the AN124 on a routine basis and its a Russian bird. I can't wait for the day the A-225 lands in Houston.
I know this may sound ridiculous, but IMHO I think any craft, from any manufacturer, is worth my undivided attention as a spotter.
I really don't care who supposedly has the better aircraft, I just love the fact that I get to see them on a routine basis.
My two cents
