What Is The Best Looking Plane?

Mon Mar 26, 2001 11:07 am

I would have to go with any of the ATR's they just look so neat another one would be the MD-80 because the one I flew on US Airways was really nice

I would have to say......

Airbus A340-500, Lockheed L1011-100, and 747-400. All three of these planes are really nice in my opinion.

Most of the planes are beautiful and impressive. The most exquisite are in my opinion the 707, the 747, the 757 and the A340. If I had to select one: the 742.
And the Concorde, but he is so unique that he cannot compete!!

Any plane that you walk away at destination to your loved ones is the most beautiful plane of the world I think.But if I have to vote for one I'd go with my baby boeing (737-400)

A319, 753... A340...

I love disproportionate aircraft...height for A319...length for 753, and the nacelle size for A340...

This is a question that will have many different replies. However, everyone will have to agree that the Concorde in flight has got to be one the most beautiful machines that man has ever created.

A340 rocks! Such a pretty plane, even A320 family is sweet looking.

Boeing side: 744 is impressive, havent yet seen a 753, but that would look cool i imagine.

L1011 and DC10, and 737 are UGLY!!!! haha

The majority of the planes are beautifull . I will have to exclude the Bac 1-11 and The British Aerospace trident from this list as I consider them the least attractive planes . But If I had to vote for the 3 best looking planes they would the Aibus A340 and A330 and the IL-62

I think that the best looking planes are:

1. DC 9
2. DC 10
3. MD 88
4. Boeing 777
5. Lockheed L-1011 Tristar 500

Of course, it all depends on what airline it is. I think that all Northwest Airline planes are ugly because they all look so dirty. TWA has some cool looking MD 88's. And all of the planes that belong to US Airways look nice because I like the color that they paint them.

The best looking aircraft is either the Concorde or the Airbus A330-200 in Aer Lingus colors. The green does wonders for the aircraft, not to mention how the shamrocks accent the adorable wingletts. Besides, that aircraft took me on a magical 10-11 hour flight from western culture to the Irish Homeland. I love You Erin!!!!
