Thread should be moved to 'Polls & Prefs', I think...

Anyways, although I consider myself as kind of 'Airbus guy' (b/c of living close to the Airbus plant at XFW), as long as I can think I was and still am very impressed by the 747 (all versions).
Another favourite would be the 727-200... What a great looking aircraft!  cloudnine

I would have to say I have a soft spot for the Boeing 707-138.

Though to fly on, I still enjoy the Boeing 737-838 the most

I do enjoy a spot of flying, especially when it's not in economy!

Hi!

My favourite Boeing are actually three. First one because it is the most unique airplane I've seen, it's the 747SP, then it comes the also unique Boeing 720 and finnally because I flew in it the 707-300B/C.

Mine is the 747 but thats the nostalgic choice. I also like the 777, very modern and sleek looking aircraft.

I can't belive the 757 doesn't have more of a following. That is an aircraft that, when on the ground, looks like it should be in the air. Overall a very majestic bird. You gotta love the classic 757 full power climb out, feels like a rocket ship man!

The 747 and triple 7 are definitly close second and thirds...
Ok, wait for the RJ to pass, cleared to push tail south Mike, and you're cleared to spin #2 in the push.

Love the 777-300ER, winglets are amazing on it.
To fly on it has to be the 757, power, and climb, no aircraft will beat that.

RE: What's Your Favourite Boeing Model?

Sun Nov 27, 2005 8:18 am

The 707 is simply a legend - a milestone of an aircraft whose versatility and durablity as great as its longetivity.

The 727 has an understated elegance, a graceful trijet that is unmistakable for any other aircraft in the world (including the Tu5).

The 737 is has been the backbone of the world's airlines' shorthaul fleet for the last 40 some years and opened up jet service to places that had never had it before. With 4000 or so models flying and a production line still being milked for orders, the 737 commands our respect.

Who can say anything bad about the 747? Without a doubt, she is the queen of the skies. She has brought people closer, opening up air service between cities that previously could not be joined because of their distances. In my mind, there is still NOTHING that can beat a 747 roaring down a runway, taking off and climbing into the sky.

The 757 is equally fantastic. Equally home on an LHR-MAN shuttle flight as it was on a transatlantic hop, its durability is matched only by its versatility. Also worth of mention is the thrill of a 752 takeoff when the thrust is coming from RB211s.

Good old 767. Just about the only aircraft offering the comfort of 2-3-2 in economy. The 767 is a familiar face in an unfamiliar world. Thanks to the 767 we've had air routes between obscure cities that otherwise couldn't support a 747, and to that end, we must thank the 767. In pioneered ETOPS, and its just about the only plane designed in the 1970s that is still reasonably economical today. I love the 767 nose as well.

Well the 777 is a technological marvel that continues to amaze, especially with the -200LR and -3000ER models. It has proven that long range ETOPS is both viable and desirable. Those engines are fantastic as well.

But at the end of the day, I have to agree with:

Quoting Mischadee (Reply 10):
747-400 with RR engines absolutely, nothing compares.

Mischa

Particularly BA's 744s. QF, NZ, CX and NZ are no longer purists and have introduced infidel engines into their 744 fleets.

Close second for me would be a 763 with RB211s, followed by any 777, followed by a 752 with RB211s.

Of the ones no longer in production for a long time, I'd kill to fly on a 707 or a 727 again. Perhaps next time there is a chance with Airevents I'll go along.

If you have to take a boeing aircraft its a tie between the 747-400/800 and the 717.

Of course the DC-9 beats any of them hands down.

In addition, it has that distinctive nose. It has a styling all it's own. And their fantastic to work on. Granted, it's been a few years since, but I still remember that they never broke.

2nd) 767
3rd) 757
4th) 777
5th) 727
6th) 737
7th) 707
8th) 717 but love MD-90!

The Dash-80. The one that started it all!
She is the Queen Mother, and her off-spring have all shown a fine pedigree.
What else in her size could do a barrel roll with such grace, so effortlessly?
50 years later, the 707 STILL looks sleek and fast. Once you hit on a perfect design, it never looks too old, much like the 65' Mustang. Still a great design!
