Well, I wouldn't want the DC9 to have looked like the Caravelle.

And having flown in lots of DC9s and 727s, and a few Embraer ERJs and BAC-111s, I don't particularly see how a T-tail is less safe than any other tail configuration. (I never got to fly in a Trident or VC-10 though.)

The British Aerospace 146 also has a T-tail and wing-mounted engines. Perhaps it has to do with the "shoulder" wing position?
