I prefer the 727, although a noisy plane, it is quiet inside & looks the best in flight.

I like the layout on the Tristar but I hate the AN225, I think its totally ugly!

i prefer to have four engines. safety in numbers you know. if i lose one i still have approx 3/4 of my total power as apposed to 2/3 or even worse 1/2.
