Most Often Photographed Airliner In World?

Thu Feb 24, 2000 2:57 am

is it just me or is Qantas' "Wanula Dreaming" the most-often photographed jetliner in the world? If not then what is?

I know for awhile, it was the 737-300 N947WP "The Simpsons" flown by WestPac.

Speaking of the QANTAS plane, how is it spelled?
Is it:
Wunala?
Wonula?
Wanula?
Wanola?
Wunaula?
Wanaula?

It would have to be that d*** Wunala Dreaming plane. I swear, everyday that I check the new photos on here, there is a pic or two of it. It must be something amazing to see I guess. Imagine, everyday when you step out and go somewhere, a person takes a pic of you. I bet that plane gets more attention from photographers than a supermodel does on a runway. I personally would like to see more AA 777's.

I know what you mean by your last post. same feeling here.

when I said "jetliner" I meant a specific plane, the most photographed specific aircraft.

Not a specific aircraft, but my vote would go to Concorde. Have you seen how many people show up at an airport when it arrives on a charter? For a 30 year old airplane, it still gets a lot of radio and tv press.
This plane is built to withstand anything... except a bad pilot.
