Favourite airplane

Post by Not1011 » Sun Oct 21, 2018 2:05 am

What's your favourite airplane?
For me, it's:
1. L-1011 (obviously)
2. DHC-6
3. DHC-7
4. A340
5. 787
I did not sell very well, so Lockheed killed me. I'm the reason it doesn't make airliners anymore.

Random stuff:
1. They ain't "sharklets", like Turbofan said.
2. The Tu-114 should really go back into service in a redesigned form.
3. The L-1011 should also return, too.
4. My posts are repeatedly deleted on the AM3 forum.
5. Concorde must return!
6. Fegelein can never die, even when Hitler himself tries to kill him. (Downfall parodies)
7. Embraer should restart production of the EMB-110 and EMB-120, as those are my two favourite prop planes.

Right now my favourite airliner is the E-190 because it has massive windows and no middle seats.
Legacy Hornet is best fighter.
BK-117 and Kiowa are tied for best helicopter.

Due to work I'm bias. The best helo's are the AW139 family including AW189 and 169.

My favourite fighter aircraft is SHAR FA.2 with Ground Attack being Tonka, Bomber being Vulcan.

Best civilian has to be either the VC10 or Tristar due to both being too far ahead of their times to be successful. Best GA is Grob 115E Tutor, great fun to fly

My general rant: I will call them blended winglets, not Sharklets; There is no CEO, it's just simply put, an Airbus 319/320/321, or the 320NEO, 321NEO etc. I didn't land IN DAL, I landed AT DAL. On the other hand, I did land in Dallas.

Favorite airliners: A380-800, A320-200NEO and A350-900

The A380 is ahead of its time. With the resilient passenger traffic growth for times to come (reference from Airbus's Global Market Forecast), plus congested airports, the A380 could not be ignored.

My favorite airplane is the F-14 Tomcat, particularly those with F-110 engines. I'll not pretend that it was the best of all time, but that doesn't really matter.
