Airplanes Resembling Faces

Sun Jun 13, 2010 7:48 pm

You ever look at the front of an airplane and notice hwo it kinda resembles a facial look? I know it sounds corny, but there has got to be others that agree with me on here. Take the 757, head-on it looks like an angry wasp! The C-5 looks like a big puppy dog. Any one think any other planes look like faces?

I think the MD-90 looks like an elderly kilt salesman, the A-321 looks like a salt marsh harvest mouse, and the 767 looks like a balding spatula designer from Sweden.

Yea. I always thought the L-1011 looked like a Dolphin, and the MD-11/ DC-10 looked like it was squinting to see ahead

This is probably best in Polls and Prefs, but the mods can fix that.

I think the 757 looks angry. The A320 looks dumpy. The 707/727/737 look squinty. The 747 looks a bit dopey. The DC-10 looks determined and fierce. And the L-1011 looks well-adjusted. The 767 looks like a handsome face with a bored expression. And the 777...chrome dome, anyone?

You could of course just paint one on!

I always thought that it was the 767 that looked like a dolphin!

And the A380 looks like a Beluga whale, with that big forehead!
