You're a trip, Milldoh! This post is so funny.  Laugh out loud

I'll have to ponder on this one and get back with you. This should be a fun topic that everyone will enjoy.

I think the new ATA 737-800 with the 8 foot blended winglets has a very "nasty" little look to it. I do not know how to place pictures in here but if you get a chance pull up a few shots of the little beast.

I remember teaching my daughter how to distinguish the 757 from other twins when she was 6 or 7 and she decided the nose was 'shark' shaped as opposed to cone shaped-

What she meant was the point is closer to the bottom than the center (as with the profile of a shark) and it has left me with a greater respect of the 75 ever since Smile

I say the 777 is the "Bad-Ass" king of them all.

I would have to agree, the 777 is king. Any plane whose ENGINES are the same diameter as a 737 is Bad-ass.

IMO, two types fall into the category of this topic:

1) B777: Looks like a B767-300 on steroids

2) B757: Looks like an avid bicyclist with musclebound legs (its disproportionately large engine nacelles) and slender upper body (its pencil-like fuselage)

When you look at the 777's cockpit windows head on, it looks like a plane you don't want to mess with.

As for the concorde, not as nasty looking, but the nose really does look like it has an attitude.

How bout this DC-10, even the clouds are trying to hide from it by taking cover in the engine nacelles (not a good idea)

Well. I once saw a Concorde take off as I was lined up #2 and even the Captain came on and let everyone on the left side of the 744 know what was about to happen. It is a very rare sight to see a plane take off with full afterburners shooting flames right out the back. This is no contest, the Concorde makes all the rest look like fly-weight amateurs. On sub-sonic, the frontal close up of a 777 has no equal, absolutely brutal engines.
