	I would disagree. I think that the most beautiful tail on
an aircraft was, is and will always be on the Lockheed
Constellation (L49, L749, L1049, L1649). After that I would
have to say the Airspeed Ambassador. There is something
about a triple tail that can't be duplicated by the
monolithic structures of today's aircraft, efficient though
they may be. BTW, ask any "Connie" pilot why it took a real
man to fly a "Connie"!
