Favorite Two, Three, And Four-engined Airliner

Fri Oct 15, 2004 5:55 am

The question is the title of the topic....what is your favorite twin-engined airliner, three-engined airliner, and four-engined airliner?

I'd have to say that my favorite twin is the Boeing 777, my favorite three-engined jet is a tie between the DC-10, 727, L-1011, and MD-11. Finally, my favorite four-engined jet is the Boeing 747. I especially love the classics. Love the 747 jumbo heavies  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Well, I wil start with the easiest- my favorite four-engined airliner is the 707.

Almost as easy is my favorite 3-holer: L-1011.

As for my favorite twin, that one is more difficult. If I have to choose just one, I will go with the 767.

The twin is easy...A330-200
Trijet, hmm ... the DC10-30 slightly matches the MD 11
Four-engined jet is the B747-200 closely followed by the A 340-600.
