Today marks 100 years of aircraft production at Boeing.

Of all the iconic aircraft produced, which one is your favourite? The queen of the skies, 747, or perhaps one of the old classics - 707?

My favorite is still (and probably always will be) the mighty 747. Truly the queen of the skies.

I also like the sleek lines of the 757 and the huge engines of the 777-300ER

Although not strictly a Boeing my favourite is the 717. Among the Boeings it will be the 757.

It's a shame they discontinued the 757 when they did, if they could have kept the line open a few more years, i think there would have been a resurgence in demand. A great looking aircraft.

I always find Boeing aircraft quite bland - the lack of wingtips on the original designs left them lacking character. Its starting to improve now.
