All Boeings made today except the 737 have completely artificial feel, meaning that it is the computer that decides how much feedback the pilot feels (or doesn't feel).

So we can all conclude that the MD11 is by far the best aircraft ever made.  8)

I really don't get it. Why do some people find the Tristar nice? Ugly nose, hideous S-duct, short stubby fuselage, strange tail and so on. Just a weird aircraft. And incredibly, the 757 is beginning to receive the same admiration today, despite the fact that it is equally weird looking 8) :lol: ;)

I freaking love the 757!  :-* :-* :-*

I don't see how anyone can find it ugly, it is beautiful :)

It sits on stilts, the wings are tiny, the front fuselage is a different diameter from the rear fuselage and the nose looks like an anteater. And the engines look old fashioned.  ;) 8)

If we talk about looks, then it's undoubtedly the 747. Always.

Negative. Only the short humped versions look normal. The long-humped versions are not nice. And the -400 has not nice winglets and engines too.

The 727 looks nice as well. #BringBackEnginesOnTails

I like how the L-1011's nose looks like a dolphin's. Tristars certainly looked better than the DC-10.

As for the MD-11, it is just a failure. Worse than expected fuel burn translated to airlines cancelling orders. Safety wise, it rolled over during landing 3 times.

For me, the best looking sub-sonic airliner is definitely the 747-400 with RB211s. The features VS hates are exactly what I like. :P

Why do I say sub-sonic? Because the best looking airliner will always be Concorde!

VS is just being mr. Negative :D Looking apart from the L-1011, I love all the aircrafts that has been mentioned, and I can't see why anyone cannot like the Mighty Dog? It looks mean as hell  >:(

Have any of you seen the Tupolev 144? That looks very cool, just alongside the Concorde - except when the canards are extended, of course.
