Fred's comment about shark mouths on Qantas made my fingers go a googling, close enough?

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

I like that one, it'd make a good decal sheet.  :thumbsup:

Me too. Reminds me of the "No way BA" claim on Virgin Atlantic airliners some time ago.

Found this colorful variant, too:

They painted up the beastly A-380 as a turtle. Seems fitting!






There's a turtle on the side of the turtle...   ;D


Turtle-mouth!!!  Is this a first? Has there been a turtle mouth before?  (or whatever the hell it is... "THAT"S NOT A TURTLE ITS A SEA TORIOSE BLAH BLAH LHA" )  :rolleyes: ;D

You look at that a few times and it shifts from being "cheesed off" to a "knowing smirk"  :angel:

Not exactly pretty, but interesting.

That'd need one HUGE decal sheet to do properly!  :o

I don't even think it's possible to make an A-380 pretty.  ;D

Could be right there Brad, impressive they are but anything BUT pretty. For 'pretty' you need a Convair 880 perhaps?

If they would have just re-ka-jiggered the front...  cockpit placement and nose shape and all that, it would have been better.

880's are definitely gorgeous. Sud Caravelle might be one. 727-200 might be a contender. 747 even! Now that's how you make a behemoth "look good."

There's only ever going to be one winner in the good looking airliner contest. Concorde with the droop snoot up. :thumbsup:
