Would you rather...

Sat Aug 10, 2019 3:57 am

Hypothetically speaking, if you could now take a regularly-scheduled commercial flight on one of the following aircraft, which would you choose? Assume safety and airworthiness considerations are not a concern.

A. 707 or DC-8

B. DC-10 or L-1011

C. Concorde or Tu-144

D. VC-10, Caravelle or Comet.

And this, ladies and gentlemen, is the very first Fokker airplane built in the world. The Dutch call it the mother Fokker.

DC-8
Tristar
Tu-144
Caravelle.

The hardest one is B. The Dc-10 is one of my favourites, but I have already flown an MD11 so a new manufacturer is better.

I read the climate control in the TU-144 was extremely loud. Concorde, please.

I’ll add another to the first category- the Convair 880/990. I’d probably choose either of those over the DC-8 or 707.

A. 707*
B. DC10-always wanted to fly on one since my dad worked for FX and CO
C. TU144-I find Russian aerospace engineering facsinating
D. VC10-much better and cooler looking plane

*tough call because I'd love to fly on a stretch CFM powered 8, but ive been reading the book Skygods lately and would really like to see what it was like on a PA turbojet 707
When wasn't America great?
