717 is my favourite of the lot :D

Although i love all of the Boeing 7 series, she was my first favourite aircraft so i am very loyal to her and have to vote for her.
Just love the T-Tail :D

Best Boeing 7

Postby TERRY MAGEE » Mon Nov 12, 2007 4:48 pm

I don't have a favourite as they are from different eras.

But how about the 720. I flew on D-ABOL, D-ABOQ and N7540A.

The Queen of the Skies, the 747, in particular the -400 :)
But I also think the 777-300ER is pretty cool. Big engines.

The 727 had the original 'T' tail for Boeing, thats why i voted for it. But i am fond of the 717 too :)

I have always loved the sound of this Tri-jet (especially an un-huskitted one), then there is the smoke trail... Mmmmm Sadly the 727 is a rare bird in our skies these days :(

There is a difference between what you may regard as your favourite 7 seriers Boeing and what you may regard as the best.In my case the 747 is both!

The DC-3 made air travel profitable for the airlines without relying on
Government Post Office mail contracts.The Super Connie again made flying even more profitable.The 707 allowed not just the Very rich but also the rich able to fly.The 747 allowed all of us to fly at reasonable airfares...and got better and better...the 747 opened up travel to the masses.

Also the 747 revolutionised the way aircraft were handled...ie
Containerised Baggage and cargo.Leading to quicker turnarounds and less staff to load.(Forget the Airbus 380...its just updated old
technology!)

Lastly,the basic design of most modern airliners...Swept wings with podded engines hanging from pylons on the wing owe their design from
the Boeing B-47 Stratojet.....and no i'm not on the Boeing payroll!

There is only one Boeing jet and that is the old girls of the sky the mighty tri jet. Has a sound only a mother can love and very distinct.






The 727 ROCKS
