Definitely the -200, I LOVED the curved staircase and it's range was better than the -300 anyway. It's just a beautiful plane.

My favourite is a derivation of the -100 series, the 747SP. The little stubby things look so cute!

The 100 is my favorite.
The 200 is pretty cool too!
My favorite livery was American Airlines 747-100.

How can you love an older version of something. Definately the 747-400.

My favourite is the 747SP, too. The plane looks extremly powerful. Not long and thin like the DC-8 or the A340.

By far the best looking 747 of all time is United's "747 Friend Ship" of the 1970s with the four stars & "747 Friend Ship" written below the hump:

So in conclusion, I believe the 747-122 of the 1970s is the best looking.

The Stumpy 747-SP... followed by the 747-400F and 747-400.

Plus mad props to Kona for liking the classic United Friendship livery. One of my favorites.

My uncle is an ex. Cathay pilot who retired 2 years ago from 777s after flying the 747-400, 300, 200 and the Tristar / 707. Naturally, his favorite was the 777 but he said that the 747-400 was far superior to the -300s which he disliked but also the -200. He says the -400 is far more reliable and operates better than the others.

I tend to agree. The -400 is very reliable and I always feel comfortable when flying aboard one. I sometimes get a little nervous flying aboard older planes because I know that they are getting old even though newer doesn't always mean better. SO for me, 744 rocks

The Boeing 747SP is definately my favourite Boeing 747 derivative. However as there are so few I would have to say that the B747-400 is a very very close second!

Mind you any 747 with RB211's on it wins my vote. Nothing compares to the divine sound they make!

Every 747 version is better looking than every other aircraft except maybe the Concorde. I bet I´m not alone here.

My favourite is the 747-400 especially because I like the wider wingspan with the cute winglets. The nicest silhouette is the one of the 747-400 Freighter with the short upper deck.

The single best looking 747 (and therefore the best-looking airliner of all time) for me is red hot 747-438 VH-OJB "Wunala Dreaming" of Qantas. Please don´t repaint it to normal colours during the upcoming D-check (even if they have to remove the paint)!
