Best Looking Aircraft

Sat Mar 24, 2001 3:46 pm

I think the best looking aircraft in the air today is the American Airlines 777-200. That aircraft in AA's scheme is just beautiful. I think it is the best looking aircraft ever produced! What do you think the best looking arecraft is, if you can place a photo of it along with your post.

I agree with you GOT, especially on hte SAS 767.
The 767 looks good in almost all colors, but I think it looks best in KLM's C/S

My very favourite will be the 777-300ER- with even bigger GE90s, raked wing-tips and looong body, this ultimate twinjet will look stunning to my eyes. I can`t wait to see it!!

To be honest, I can't stand American Airlines livery - it just looks so naked + you can see where the different fuselage sections are stuck together....

I think if AA came out with a nice modern look, they might have the best looking aircraft. Red, White and Blue go real good together especially if you know how to use them correctly. I think US did a real good job of switching up their C/S but still using the same colors. AA has some sweet airplanes, and a little bit of work on the "drawing" board will complement them even better. Right now tho, CO takes the victory.

I'd have to say the newest member of the Boeing Family-the 737-900. It looks good in the Alaska c/s, imagine what it'll look like the the KAL scheme!

The 744 is United's scheme is beautiul Timbo, I would have to agree. But I still think the AA 777 is a little bit nicer.
