  • Your favourite aircraft?

    does anyone here have a favourite aircraft thats not one of the big popular planes like the 777,747, or the newer a340-500 and -600? for me its like those planes are "celebrities" in a sense and all the other planes are kinda like regular people. what im asking is does anyone have a favourite aircraft thats not one of those four popular choices but is a regular plane like a 767 or 757 or a330? and what makes it your favourite aircraft?

        I think 330s and 767s are just as popular, if not more, as 777s and A340s.

        We already have a thread similar to this still somewhat active.

        Some of mine that aren't all over the place anymore would have to be the Fokker 100, Jetstream 41, Embraer 120, Bae-146, Bac-111. That is assuming that names like DC-10, L-1011, DC-9 and 727 are too mainstream.

            MD-80 is my favorite because of the 2-side.

            Of the Boeing metal: 727, 757, and 737NG

                757-300 (especially) - love the strange look of it

                and a soft spot for TU-154s

                  This thread seems to share more than a passing resemblance to one in the Av photography forum....

                    Now, here are some planes I don't particularly care for:

                    EMB-120
                    A319
                    DC-9
                    737-200

                    Not to upset you Airbus fans too much, but I have never liked the take off or landings on the A319. When the plane takes off and the gear is retracted, there seems to be a "grinding sound" that is just not there with Boeing metal. Plus, the landing is not as smooth as on the 757 or 737NG.

                    I will have my first flight on an Airbus widebody this Summer (A330). I'm expecting a better experience.

                      Is there a difference between the A319 on the one hand and the A320 and A321 on the other ?

                        Don't know about the -321, but I commute on -319s and -320s twice a week and haven't noticed much difference.

                          My Favourite Airplane!!!

                          Yeah,

                          I have a favourite airplane....its the Fairchild Hiller FH-227 that was produced from 1966 until 1968...78 examples built. Sadly perhaps only 2 or three left flying. I have a website dedicated to this machine. If you check out my profile here, there is a link to the site as my "homepage".

                          Take a look and send me some feedback on what you think....

                          I am looking for some FH-227 video, if anyone might have some....
                          I know that in September of 1984, DAT of Belgium did a three plane fly-by over Antwerp Harbor....Below is a link to that even from my website...
                          http://fh227.rwy34.com/bigpic.php?id=696

                          There had to be some sort of videotaping of that going on and I would so much love to get a copy if anyone here was there!!!

                          Anyway, thats the plane that I like....

                          Cheers, Access-Air
