By what possible criterion does the 717 get to be one of the best aeroplanes in the world?! I mean, I know we're getting carried away on this big weekend but puh-lees!

As the penultimate expression of the DC-9 family?

C'mon, man, show the poor little 717 some love!  couple

Man that was incredible to see! Mr. Harlot and I met up with Charles and Jon at PAE earlier in the day, but we had a birthday party to go to so we could not stay for the airplanes to take off. But we ended up bailing on the birthday party and went down to BFI to see them land. Each one did a missed approach before going around in the circuit and landing. It was amazing!!

You and your party are really fortunate to have seen it! I don't know to what degree this was announced ahead of time, but if I knew this was going to happen, I would have made the 3000 mile trip!

Which is a classic and no two ways about it. I've had 77 flights on DC-9s / MD-80s / MD-90s and my next two flights will be on MD-90s. I've enjoyed every one of them.

BUT...

Is it one of the top seven airliners ever? If so, which other "Boeing" 7-series makes way for the A320 or A300 or Concorde or - dammit - BAe146?!

I'm surprised AA doesn't have any birds in this... they are a huge Boeing operator.

Who has said that Boeing was implying that? It was a line-up of their commercial jet families (the 720 was a 707 derivative). Why would you say that the 717 was (or wasn't) "one of the top seven airliners ever?"

Because a post which has now been deleted claimed that this line-up represented "the seven best aeroplanes in the world". (See post #83.) It's taking nothing away from Boeing or the 787 or any of their authentic and unquestionable classics to suggest that there may be other "aeroplanes" that might arguably squeeze into the top seven other than those that originate in Seattle.

Had you read the whole thread before posing your question?

He didn't bring it up, someone else did by saying these are the top 7 airliners which is bullcrap. All PM did was say the 717 isn't one of the 'seven top airliners of all time', and I sure as hell agree with him.

Here's a good article from the Seattle Times with an overhead shot of the Parade of 7's. Also, you can see the number 787 outlined on the parking lot of the Museum of Flight

And in the upper right of the picture you can see a Concorde, and in the upper left of the picture you can see the double deck version of the 747. And in the middle a DC-3 and what looks like a B-47 but can't see the outside pylons so maybe not.

That would be Concorde G-BOAG, the 747 is the second LCF, the DC-3 is a DC-2, and yes, that is a B-47E.

Also sitting next to Concorde is RA001, the 747 prototype, the prototype of the 737, the first VC-137, and a AA 727-200

I think it is a bummer that the City of Everett (RA001) is no longer airworthy. It would have been an excellent addition to yesterdays Parade of 7s. The 737 would also have been a great addition...

You would have to be a real moron flag waver to think the 717 is in the top 7 commercial jet aircraft ever produced. PM is usually pretty level-headed, his comments make sense now.

While the 717 is a fine niche aircraft I doubt anyone would put in a top 20 list for best commercial jets ever. BUt, putting together such a list might be fun.

Thank you for that info.

This is not a showcase of the 'Seven Best Aeroplanes In The World'. This is the Parade of Sevens. I think you get the point.

PM, take a chill pill and relax. You are overreacting.

Quoting Ammunition (Reply 86):
Is it just me, or has that 747 got a huge engine on it? looks like a GE-90?

You need to READ the thread. Its the Trent 1000 for the 787. READ the thread, Ammunition, read the thread.

Seeing as it's now Monday, the DL 767, CO 757, AS 737, FX 727, and FL 717 have probably all gone back home and flying regular lines. The RR 747 and the 707 Omega Tanker might hang out a bit longer. The AF 777 I think is a new aircraft being prepped for delivery.
