Top Ten Best-Looking Aircrafts And Livery

Tue Oct 05, 2004 9:58 am

Just curious to see which are the top ten most appealing aircrafts and their corresponding livery that accentuate the beauty of the aircraft.

I will post my number one now and the others later:

The winner for me is B747-400 by KLM

The TWA Boeing 747 and Lockheed L-1011 Tristar in the final TWA c/s were some of the best looking aircraft I ever came across. The Boeing 777 and Boeing 767 and AA colors are favorites of mine too...I think the UA 777 as well is the bomb in the new livery...lessee....the MD-11 looked excellent in AA colors and DL's final colorscheme. Basically, I think the two best looking aircraft in any livery would have to be the 747 and 777. The 747 looked great in DL colors and AA colors, and all UA colorschemes...and the 777 looks good in just about any livery. The DC-10 as well fits all colorschemes, and also the L-1011. The Boeing 727 too.

SQ a340 (or any a345/346 for that matter)
Well, few people will disagree with me on this, lets just say it's not mainstream. But when JAS got their first 777's, they were still new airplanes. I mean you didnt see them everywhere, so their rainbow spiral livery thing stuck in my head.
In general I like VS s livery. Both the 744 and a340. I love the winglets!!!!!!
