It really isn't an airliner, but the new C-17 has a T-Tail. I suspect this is
'cause it's a cargo aircraft, though.

I've found that the fastest way to tell if an aircraft is a Boeing or an
Airbus is the top of the rear fuselage. If the top slopes down as towards the
end of the aircraft, it's a Boeing; if it goes straight (parallell to the
ground), it's an Airbus.
