  1. If you haven't seen it yet, here it is: :hyper:

    And here's my current favorite: The Airbus A340-500 - the world's longest range commercial aircraft at this time.

    Plus, here's a few links you airplane aficianados might like:

    Two of the most colorful airline liveries you may ever see:

    Hmm... those two were close, but I think The Aussies might have us beat. :D

    What was your question?

    Do I like airplanes?

    Naaah! :D

  2. I love that Qantas paintjob. Is that an actual plane, or just a miniature? And what do you think will find a better reception, the DreamLiner or the A380?
  3. Qantas actually painted a plane in that color scheme, although I don't know if they still have it painted like that.

    As for which plane will be better received?

    The A380 is for long-range high-density routes, while the 787-8 was designed for ultra-longe range medium-density routes.

    Two different areas.

    I think Boeing realized that one super-huge plane was enough in the airline world, so they concentrated on the long and ultra-long range area of the market.
