Favorite Boeing / Airbus

Sun Sep 17, 2006 2:58 am

I did a search and it doesn't look like this has been covered yet. As the title suggests, what is your favorite Boeing and what is your favorite Airbus?
This isn't a A vs B thread, just list your favorite for each.

Favorite Boeing: (and favorite of all time)
757 of course!!!

I like the -200 more than the -300, but they are both the most beautiful aircraft ever created.

Favorite Airbus:
Not a big fan of Airbus, but if I had to pick one, it would be the A320:

I think every Boeing has a great look. Hard to pick one as a favorite.

Both are great.

Boeing would be the 777 (both the 200 and 300 look great)

I will have to admit, I would prefer Airbus rather than Boeing as I have made more lego Airbus aircraft  Silly.

My favourite Airbus is definately the a330-300 (especially in Thai livery)

Among the actual ones it´s the A 330 and Boeing´s 737-700 plus the Dash-8 series
Among the "pasttime" a/c it´s the BAC 1-11-500, Boeing 727-200, Fokker F 27, Dash-7 and the Lockheed Tristar´s.
Flying is not inherently dangerous but it is very unforgiving in case of carelessness, incapacity or neglect.

Favorite Airbus:
Yet to travel in an airbus but aesthetically, the A332 and the A346 comes to mind.
