That's funny, because I always thought the same of the 757 - I just didn't like the droop-nose-thing. I think people dislike the 380 because it is so big taht it seems to lack "grace" and "style", if those things matter at all.- Martin

Yeah the 7E7 Dreamliner is Ugly, but MAN! I love that paint scheme!I guess it will take a while to grow on us.

I quite disagree, I like the 7e7. I think we may see some alterations before the final design, mainly around the wingtip area.But BOTH the 7e7 and the A380 are new and important developments in their individual fields and exciting concepts for the future of air travel. Long may they both operate successfully.

I couldn't agree more - yeah, that's an ugly bird!I generally like planes with rounder, kind of more "female" shapes better.This is also why I never was a fan of the Concorde.Wolfgang

7E7 front's design has the Caravelle style. Maybe the "retro style" concept that designers are using nowsadays.

A curious thing to post if you don't want to start an Airbus v Boeing war ;)

Fred, the Caravelle was a British aircraft - in fact the first commercial passenger carrying jet. Let's not make this into a Boeing vs. Airbus discussion, shall we?

"7E7 front's design has the Caravelle style."I thought the Caravelle was one beautiful aircraft, although now I consider the EMB-170 in that category--I find it among the most beautiful commercial aircraft out there--something about the sleekness of the nose combined with those winglets.-John

Oops. A senior moment. You are absolutely right. I will never ever post again in relation to a/c history. I will leave that to those who still have connected synapsis. :)

Always here poeple saying how Ugly the A380 is but im afraid the &E& takes the CakeHmmm... I don't know. I'd give the 7E7 the benefit of the doubt for being somewhat different than the rest of the airliners around right now. The A380 is a whole different story. I just feel that Airbus is not really revolutionizing with the A380, since the 747 designs that were proposed were similar (some were almost identical). If the technology was there back then, what exactly is new?Time will tell. In 2010, both aircraft should be in service. Then we'll see what happens. :)Daniel P.http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/ng_driver.jpgMember of SJU Photography.

Dan-Air continued to fly them on charters between the UK and the Med for a few more years, and the militarized "Nimrod" versions are still flying today.Richard

No discussing taste but some people obviously has none.IMO the 7E7 looks extremely graceful, far more than that fat lump of plastic Airbus calls an A380.

I can't see why people keep comparing these two aircraft. They are totally different beasts. The A380 is hardly beautiful, but that was never the intention anyway. A 747 with a full upper deck would be ugly too. I am not too fond of the 7E7's looks either, but a lot will probably change before it goes into production. For now I can say that Boeing's vision reminds me of the way modern car design have turned cars into shapeless blobs. Wish they would have stuck with the Stratocruiser design, that would really be something.- Oyvind

G'day Tom,>Fred, the Caravelle was a British aircraft - in fact the>first commercial passenger carrying jet. :-eek :-eekReally!! - on both countsJust what have the French done to upset you Tom. Have a bad bottle of Champagne last night did we. :-lolAny limited licensing aside I'm sure Sud Aviation must be given full credit for a very original and unique (at that time) aircraft. You are of course confusing it with the DeHavilland Comet.I guess I'm just showing my age :-)Cheers,Roger @YSSYEDIT: Appologies Tom. I didn't realise the correction had already been made in another post. I'll have to check next time before jumping in on a thread.

The vertical stabilizer/rudder looks far to small for single engine control authority. I also dont like the cockpit window design. They should stay with the proven 757/67 window structure,for better visibility.

Well, the Caravelle DID have a Comet nose/cockpit section, you know... :)
