    There's probably some kernal of aviation engineering's version of evolution's natural selection at work here: We tend to trust (and ultimately love) what has kept us alive.

    Bugatti 100P - 1939

    Not only absolutely gorgeous in that traditional racing blue, but hugely advanced for its time... I'd have one.Β*
    When I was in college trying to become an aerospace engineer, long before I knew there was a Bugatti, I sketched up my perfect aerodynamic airplane. I was very surprised, except for using the Spitfires eliptical wing and a pusher prop, I drew something that looked very much like this beautiful racer.

    I'm not one to fawn over airliners, but I think you got to add the Conny to the list. Long legs, big cans, and plenty of curves - there's not a straight line on it. To me it seems to have an iconic art deco feel that will never be outdated.

    Since you're using anthropomorphism to the Connie, you do know why it was removed from service don't you?

    Yes, gotta agree... the HS125 is a beauty.. in 1980I was 16 years old whenI saw one at an airshow in Sydney, Australia, when it took off I was in awe of its power and beauty..

    2009-2011 I flew 1000 hours on this one http://www.airliners.net/search/phot...gsearch=VH-ACE

    Love the 727 also..

    Three pieces of tail... lol Actually... just too expensive!
    Hey Neddy191, I'm partial to Golden Age and love Aeroncas. Too bad the LC isn't painted properly in photo. Paul Matt has excellent 3-views from which to build model. From what aircraft are those 'dragonfly' wings in the background? Look similar to Israel 'Redhead' wings.

    One of my instructors whenI was studying ATPL Theory was an ex Conny Engineer for Qantas.. He said it was the best THREE engined aircraft ever built...

    His quote and I can't confirm the accuracy.. is that30% of the time on flights London to Sydney they wouldland with one engine shut down..

    I forgot everything else he taught me but I remembered that always..
