AN-225

I think the name of the AN-225 is "Mirya," russian for "Dream." The Gigant was a Messerschmitt transport/glider from World War II.

Not really in any order except No. 1!

1 B757
2 A330
3 B777
4 A319/320/321
5 B747
6 B767
7 B737NG
8 Concorde
9 BAE RJ100
10 A340-500/600 (I'd like the A340 now but It's too underpowered!)

Just a side note, the DC-3 was not the first commercial plane. Planes used before the DC-3 include but are not limited to the Ford Trimotor and the DC-1 and -2. The DC-3 was, however, the first aircraft that was capable of operating profitably by carrying only passengers.

LHMark, you are right, we call them Gigant but the russian name is I think indeed Mirya (or is it the 125?) I need to put more attention to the russian Airliners world...
Sorry

Tino, the AN-125 is the Ruslan, at least, here in the USA. Maybe they have a different name in Europe. -Mark

I miss a good turboprop aircraft in your list. Turboprop power was and remains the most efficient form of air transport. It revolutionized regional and feeder service and the total aviation world.
I'd vote for the 'mother' of all the ATRs, DHCs and Dorniers now flying: the Fokker F-27 Friendship, maybe in place of the Tristar or Tu-144, which weren't commercially and technical successes (well, the Tristar is a fine plane but only 100 of 250 built are still flying).
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

1. Concorde: By far and away the most graceful airliner ever flown. I've seen it up close and personal at Oshkosh and it's amazing. For pure speed and beauty, it's number one.

2. Lockheed L-1011: The first airliner to ever make an entire flight electrically flown by computers. Swift, quiet (for the time), good looking, and comfortable, it's the best of the non-glass cockpit airliners.

3. Boeing 727: Once the world's favourite airliner, the 727's sharply swept wing and long, sleek fuselage (3 inches longer than the 707) gives it that certain "presence" that modern, more efficient short haul airliners lack. Not to mention that it can fly out of nearby Pryor Field at max gross thanks to its 26 flap system (which is said to be utterly reliable).

4. Boeing 747: Boeing took a big gamble and it paid off beautifully. The 747 IS the Jumbo Jet. The largest airplane plying the skies, watching one takeoff is like nothing you've ever seen.

Not really in any particular order:
Canadair Regional Jet
Fairchild Aerospace 323JET
Boeing 767
MD-80/MD-90
MD-11 (kudos to McDonnel Douglas for staying with the trijet)
777
717

You Have To Read This!

Fri Jan 28, 2000 1:25 pm

About 1 hour ago I posted a message and it was as follows:

"Did anyone have any problems getting on airliners.net today at approx. 1400 PST? I tried to get on about 5 times but failed. Just curious - no harm done. Thanks"

The interesting thing about this whole deal is that for whatever reason the operators of this site removed my innocent question. I had no problem with not being able to get on - I was not complaining or bad mouthing the site owners. I even made it clear that no harm was done. What is up with this? Why was my message removed? I HAD no complaint but it seems things have changed. I have a MAJOR complaint now and for a good reason. Does anyone agree with me? What did I do wrong?! I asked an innocent question deserving an innocent answer. I know this message will be taken down also, but If you read this before they remove it, e-mail me at timobear@yahoo.com with your comments. Also, I encourage you to start new topics based on this injustice. If enough of us stand up and say "no" things WILL change. LET THE OWNERS OF AIRLINERS.NET KNOW THAT WHAT THEY DID WAS WRONG! Thank you

Timobear,

I'm sure your post was deleted in error. These things happen, I put a post on around the same time and it wasn't there when I refreshed, so I wouldn't get too paranoid about it. Just try posting later...

I think you may be a bit harsh on the administrators as you don't know whats happening inthe background. Trust me I work in a computing environment & it is SO easy to delete/edit/down things related to computers these days that some people don't even realise what they have done until its too late. For all we know maybe someone who maintains the site has just joined & deleted it by mistake. Take it easy & try not to blame people too quickly.

After all, if they had something against you they wouldn't have let you post this message. True?

Kindest Regards

I have counted all points of airplanes (each plane, which is in 1st place, got ten points, in 2nd place -- nine, 3rd -- eight, 4th -- seven...) This is ten most popular airliners (they got most points):

1.Boeing 747 -- 38 pts.
2.Lockheed L-1011 tristar -- 32 pts.
3.Concorde -- 21 pts.
4.Airbus A319/20/21 -- 19 pts.
5./6.Boeing 707/Boeing 757 -- 16 pts.
7.McDonell Douglas MD-11 -- 14 pts.
8.Boeing 737 -- 13 pts.
9.Boeing 777 -- 12 pts.
10./11. Boeing 727/ Mcdonell Douglas MD-80 -- 11 pts.

You don't agree with this list? Please whright your most favorite planes. If much people whright their favorite planes, I will sum these and your points, and wright new most popular commercial planes list.
