Fastest Looking Sub Sonic Jetliners

Wed Nov 21, 2007 5:01 pm

People say that the Boeing 707 look like it a fast jet. This got me to thinking, what are some of the fastest looking sub sonic jetliners in the world?

My vote

The fastest subsonic airliner was the CV990!!! It was called by Cap. Rudolfo "Rudy" Bay from Spantax, a huge CV990 operator, "The Maserati of the Skies"!!!
That bird could fly the maximum speed of 990 Kph at 22.000 ft. I think the next one was the Boeing 720 that could fly at 972 Kph.
CV990, the Maserati of the skies!

The 757. Seeing how I was on one yesterday, I forgot how overpowering the engines were for that plane....  bigthumbsup

Don't forget the little hot rod of the 60's...the Convair 880.
