  • Nicolas

    Pretty good looking plane. The noise sort of reminds me of the DC-8 and I really like the curled winglets.

  • Copycat! The nose job and the winglets smack too much of 787, for me

    • Steveo

      Erm the 787 doesn’t have winglets at all. Makes you sound ill informed to say the least.

      This is a far more impressive effort than Boeings desperate rush job in an attempt to confuse the market.

      Airbus is leaving Boeing in its wake.
