In case you wondered, this plane, the XB-70 Valkyrie, was not eligible for consideration because it never became a production plane.

Our reader survey last week saw a lot of people sending in their preferences for the most beautiful plane to have ever taken to the air.  While everyone had their own preferred three choices, a very clear winner emerged.

You can probably guess what the winner is, and maybe you’ll not be surprised about the runner-up airplane, either.  But you might be surprised at some of the others in the top ten, and if isn’t enough, we extended the analysis all the way to the top 25 planes.

Old or new, big or small, slow or fast – they’re (almost) all there.

Usually weekly, since 2001, we publish a roundup of travel and travel related technology developments, and often a feature article too.

You’ll stay up to date with the latest and greatest (and cautioned about the worst) developments.  You’ll get information to help you choose and become a better informed traveler and consumer, how to best use new technologies, and at times, will learn of things that might entertain, amuse, annoy or even outrage you.

We’re very politically incorrect and love to point out the unrebutted hypocrisies and unfairnesses out there.

This is all entirely free (but you’re welcome to voluntarily contribute!), and should you wish to, easy to cancel.

We’re not about to spam you any which way and as you can see, we don’t ask for any information except your email address and how often you want to receive our newsletters.
