You are able to bring back one aircraft from the past and have it be put into production and service. All past planes are fair game, whether it was a concept aircraft, an early pre-production model, a one-off, or an actual mass-produced plane that simply isn't built anymore. Which aircraft from the past would you revive?

 

For me it'd be the Boeing 7N7.

I would revive the tupolev tu-114 because it is ultra-fuel efficient and quite big and fast. I'd add sound proofing and winglets to make the plane even more efficient.

Pls still explain. It's a rather big fuel guzzler isn't it.

It's an amazing plane. America can be seen as nice by some, doesn't mean they're trying to be eco friendly (that said discussing the environment on this site is useless... they're all messing up our air anyway).

Considering that fuel price was about $110 per barrel in June, and is going back up towards it, gas guzzlers are not the future. q400s and 787s and a350s however are.

Ummmmmmm that's where you're a bit wrong. DC 9s are still in service in places. I never said it would be feasible to reintroduce it, it's just I have a superior taste in plane too those who love noisy four engined props designed in the 50s.

Supersonic! Therefore the Concorde (With Newer, More Efficient Engines).

I bet airlines would ask them to built it with 2 engines only.

I remember the previous A380 concept where they plan to install 12 abreast configuration in economy (extra wide cabin) instead of double Decker airplane. I thought it was a better choice compared to the current version.

It'd have to be a high-bypass turbofan each with at least 64,000 lbs of static thrust for that to come about. I don't know of any engines like that, though I may be uninformed.

Who knows? They might built it with no engine at all.

I would vote TU144, under the condition of segnificant fuel flow improvements. its an awsome plane that was earlier then concorde but failed due to concordes succes and price. (and 2 test flight crashes)

You want to bring back that scrap metal deathtrap "under the condition of significant fuel flow improvements"? How about under the condition that they make it actually airworthy and safe?

Better than big, riveted panels.
