Favorite Boeing?

Thu Jul 24, 2003 6:39 am

Mine is the 735.

Also, Which airplane flys further? The CRJ or 735?

Thanks!

I love most of them, but I have to say the 747-400 is my all time favorite, followed closely by the 777, and the 767.

Mine would have to be the 757 because it was the very first aircraft I flew on.

..the Boeing MD11 of course!..  Big grin

If I ever had about $300 million to spend, I'd have Boeing build me a 772 with a pair of those sickly, crazy ass GE90-115Bs in UA colors with an all black cockpit (instead of yucky beige). DAMN, that would be orgasmic!

 Wow!

I love the 727. Now, as to which variant... The 722 looks more graceful, but there's a vintage look to the 721 that I love. Plus, three engines on a plane that small just make it look incredibly powerful.

I think the 727 is one of the most beautiful examples of industrial design ever. Even today, four decades after the first one rolled off the line, I think it looks futuristic and modern and, well, just about as good looking as an aircraft can be Big grin

For some reason, I like the Boeing 757/767 series aircraft. I dunno why, but the way Delta furbished their Song 757 really brings out the sweetness of that aircraft.

My favorite McDonnell Douglas Series is the DC9 Series 10-95.

My favorite Airbus is the A320 soon to be replaced by A380.

My favorite Lockheed is the Lockheed Super Constellation. So Sleek, and Beautiful. Especially in TWA colors. Followed by close runner up, L-1011.

Hi All,
I'd have to say my favorite aircraft are the 727 and 747 series. BTW do either of these aircraft have an official name like the L-1011 "Tristar"?

Cheers,

I love the Boeing 717 and Boeing 777 . I havent flown the 717 but I hope to one day . The 777 ? The feeling flying on the 777 is simply marvalleous and very spacious feeling . I enjoy flying the 777s especially the -300 . You feel like flying in a long tube . I love to walk around during the flights and its much more spacious then any other aircrafts .

The model 299 is my favorite with the 345 a close second. Not far behind though are the 707 and 727.

Have I confused anyone yet? I hope not as the 299 and 345 are quite famous.

To be fair the 717 is really a McDonnell Douglas product- remember the MD-95, Boeing just renamed it. Neither is the MD-11 a Boeing product. It's not fair to give Boeing credit for these types when they didn't even build them. Aside from this my favourite Boeing airplane is the 757-200. Just looks so sleek and sexy plus it's got heaps of power  Smile
