Any engine that is still hanging from the wing in one piece at the end of my flight is my favorite engine. But if you want to go for looks the 737-200 engine you listed is cool and the GE90s on the 777 are nice.

I am with DeltaGator. I love the GE90's.

I also liked that experimental engine from a few decades ago. I cannot remember what it was called but it was a jet engine that had some prop blades on it on the back.
Is it weird I have a RemoveBeforeFlight pitot cover on my car rear view mirror?

I love the look of the JT8D-15,17 on the 737-200. It doesn't look like it could produce enough thrust for that aircraft! Seeing a four engined plane with such engines is cool, the 707 and its JT3D's gets my vote.

The big 777's with their massive GE90s on the other hand look sluggish and "hulk" like in comparison, although I can vouch for their good performance from my experience flying on them. I still think these high bypass engines are UGLY, but obviously so much more efficient and quiet.

I would have to go for the GE90. One of the biggest and most powerful engines in service for an airplane. I also enjoy the sound that it generates.

The GE90 on the 777s or the RB211s on the 744s.

Call me old-fashioned, but I have a soft spot for nice round engines....
