I voted for the 7417 Temple of Mount Everest Biplane ;-)
I really loved that plane but was stupid enough to dissemble it (like the 7420-Thunder Blazer) !! I really need to find the instruction and rebuild it hehe !! I chose 7417 because I prefered the colour scheme !!
The plane I really like also is the 5935 Island Hopper because I always loved Sea Planes !! Oh glorious history of the Pan Am long gone unfortunatly :'-( !!

Thanks for collecting all these pics/sets for another great poll,

Incredible plane - large and bulky with cargo area and GREAT pieces... the pontoons came off too easily but what can you do. I have 2 of these sets and replaces the pontoons with wheels (i hated the pontoon designs) and they look great!
I think this kind of style of plane should have been worked with more. I remember a long time ago, there was some set previews for 2005 that were called "Dino" and alot of us thought it was a new Adventurers line... we were wrong and it was the pretty bad Dino Attack line... but there was a small picture and it looked like some big prop plane... it looked awesome... I think more planes like this would be great!
In second place probably the Bi-Wing Baron... and than maybe Pontoon plane... I loved that little set too...
And how could I forget that Desert Expedition plane... I would kill for one of those...

It is definately the most sturdy adventurer plane, it survived a couple falls from a shelf (and was a very good set to make it onto one of my shelfs...)

Tis a beautiful set. I wish we could get more like this.. I am very happy that I have at least have 2.
And BRICKSTER, a suggestion: How about do seperate votes for small promotional sets and the larger 'official' line sets... all those little planes we KNOW are not going to win against the 'MAIN' sets... Its a little unfair to pit 1279 against The Island Hopper... lets divide promotional sets and main sets... and also - get some bigger pictures so people without the sets can judge better without leaving Eurobricks!

Also, when I make the images bigger, the single picture comes out much larger and takes longer to load (so I try to keep the individual images small).
Maybe for my next poll, I'll show more comparative sets with larger images.
It's funny. The island hopper is a nice plane, but I found it in many stores deep discounted. Maybe it was the female mini-fig or just the fact it was a sea plane? I don't think it was a good seller though.

It was too small to be big and too big to be small in my opinion (if that makes any sense?). When I caught a glimpse of it in the pull out from the lego mag before it was released I thought it would be huge, I instantly tried my hand at a second plane on scale (for an adventurer scape I had up at the time. When I got it I was hugely dissapointed... my sea plane was big enough to hold an adventurer car in the cargo area, in comparison the island hopper was dwarved.
