If you could bring an aircraft back into production...

Recommended Posts

If you could bring an aircraft out of production back into production what would it be? I would bring the DC-9 back into production.

This question is tailor made for the best aircraft built in the last 50 years. It would have to be the Concord(e). 35 years on and there is still nothing yet on the drawing boards that can match its elegance, and pace.

I will vote for the Vickers Viscount. It was an elegant aircraft with amongst many attractive touches those beautiful oval windows (the shape known as the Weybridge Oval). I might be prejudiced in my choice however, having spent twenty years at the BAe Weybridge plant (formerly the Vickers plant).Denis. The Ancient Brit.

Fokker F-VII. First successful purpose designed airliner in the world and most successful commercial aircraft of the 1920s with well over 200 delivered.

More than just rumors...it's true. This was announced a couple of months ago. The Beaver and either the Otter or Twin Otter (I can't remember which) type certificates have been purchased by a canadian company who has stated they will resume production. I don't have a link for this information, but it was in several publications (internet and print) when the news was made public.
