I have to agree with KRP - the VC-10 (both the Standard and the Super) were about the sexiest planes to ever take to the air.

The L-1011 is very beatiful, but the maximum sex-appeal come from MD-11, specially the sadly disappeared blue VP livery

Trust me, the Il-62 was ugly in real life!

tu-154 would be nice but the droopy wings give it that sad look.

VC-10 is definetly a beauty, i love those swept wings.

L1011 is also a good looker, even (as you said with the VC-10) in RAF colours, flys over my house alot and looks as sleak and modern as it did 30 years ago.

DC-10 is also a handsome bird, but really in the right colours (I like it in AOM)

All airbuses look superb and clean.

Boeings have their moments, but i still don't like the piggy.

4) Constellation
5) TU-114
6) CV-990
7) Comet
8) Viscount
9) B707-320
10) DC-3

Personally speaking, I've never thought wide-bodies are good-looking, though the A340 is pretty sleek.
