I certainly don't mean to offend any engineers out there, but don't you think all commercial jets are beginning to look the same, save for the 717. I live in Seattle and work in Renton. Everyday I drive by Boeing field and often have lunch in a parking lot at the end of the runway in Renton. All these newer planes, 90's on, seem to just be slightly different versions of themselves on the outside. What happened to designing planes that were asthetically pleasing as well as highly functional. The 747 comes to mind, what an amazing looking aircraft! It is art! The constellation was beautiful, DC-3 is gorgeous, even the 727 was unique in its look. Now it seems to me that all the newer aircraft, 737s, Airbus, 757, 777, though highly functional, just don't have that artistic quality about them that makes so many people fall in love with aviation in the first place. Am I just being too picky or does anyone else share this view. BTW, thanks for the tips on upgrading! I'm going to try a few of them!
