    What is your favourite?

    Just like to know, what is everyone's favourite type of commercial aircraft and why? Mine probably has to be the ATR72-500, Dash 8Q400 and probably the Airbus A330- 300. Oh and possibly the MD-11! No reason though, i just think they are damn good aircraft.

    Mins has gotta be the A340-600. Anyone who has seen one in the flesh will know why

          Any airbus model is very pleasing on the eye,they must have got designers from ferrari to help ,I also like the 747/777 very much,they remind me of big american muscle cars.

            BOEING 757-200!

            Any single day of the week, particularly one's in Jet2 livery like myself and PMN saw in the sunshine today..... Unbelieveably good looking, and a damn good performer as well!

              A close one between the DC-10 and the B757 for me.

                Airbus A310.

                Fat and out of shape, but one hell of a machine! Would have an A310 over any other plane.

                  757 hand down. One of the sleekest looking commercial aircraft in the sky.

                    This is going to be hard theres some many aircraft i like but if i have to choose im going to choose 2

                    The classic plane.

                    the boeing 707 flown by my grandfather for BOAC and british airways a true pioneer of the avaition industry still going strong today. (sorry about this one guys my grandfather is in hospital i just thought id share it with you)

                    Modern day.

                    Its going to be the boeing 747-400 a true legend of an aircraft look great in the air and its doing boeing proud.

                      Probably either the 744 or the L-1011, both look so sleek and elegant

                      Everybody makes mistakes, that's why they put erasers on the ends of pencils.

                        L1011 and 747 classic. Nowadays, I'm rather partial to the 777.

                          funny you should say that Airbus has Ferrari's designers! I know of one Aerodynamics Eng who worked for Ferrari F1!!

                          I do like the 757, but I also like the 340-600, and the 380 also.

                              It's a toss between the L1011 and DC-10, either of them do it for me

                                Interesting sme of you love the styling of the Busses. I hate it. Doesn't look well proportioned with a shape drawn and things added later. To me they look very fragile. I can't deny though that the 330 wing under load is beautiful. I love the shape of the 767, particularly the nose section but the 744 looks beautifully proportioned and purposeful. Awesome to see in flight, gear up.

                                  Does the Dragon Rapide count?

                                  They still operate with Classic Wings in a paassenger carrying capacity so I feel they should.

                                  A proud owner once took me for a bimble and it was an incredible experience. Sitting in the smart, leather, single seats. Legs stretched out to their fullest extent, watching the ground slip past at a leisurely 110 knots or so it was so redolent of a time when air travel was an adventure rather than an endurance event.

                                  I'll get back to historic now.

                                  "What you must remember" Flip said "is that nine-tenths of Cattermole's charm lies beneath the surface." Many agreed.

                                      The DC-3.

                                      A beautiful looking aircraft with a real sensation of flying when on board. And just how many 757's, 321's, MD-11's will still be in regular service after 70 years?

                                      Although Moggy's Dragon Rapide may just get a look in after I have taken a flight in one belonging to Air Atlantique's Classic Flight from Halfpenny Green this coming Saturday.
