    This is a good idea for a squadron of Kamikaze Pilots in RSAF methinks.

    I really impressed with the P-51D, They were used during the Korean War for Air to ground attack and air to air combat against the MIG-15

    Zero fighter was mentioned, but not ranked. I think this coming Sun will be the repeat telecast for the Top 10 fighters at 10pm.

    Heh.. The X-15's need to be launched off B-52's.. But once they're fire off, just about nothing can shoot them down... LOL.. Well... Unless there are missles that can travel out of the atmosphere and maintain cruising speeds more than Mach 3..

    Heh... If the B-52's in your aerial territory that is..
    The X-15 can enter near-space and then re-enter atmosphere.. The pilots actually wear a spacesuit of sorts to fly it..

    1) F15C Eagle
    3) F-4E Phantom
    4) F-86 Sabre and MiG-15
    5) Cant remember...
    6) Me 262
    7) Spitfire
    8) Sopwith Camel
    9) BAE Harrier
    10) F-22 Raptor

    yeah, I watched that too .. If not for the gun camera footage, I'd change the channel rightaway.
    .. the scoring system is vague ..
    Fear factor ? if it's so, how come they didn't even mentioned the FW 190 series? FW 190 was called "Butcher Bird' by the American for valid reason...

    Indeed if you look closely at the Top 10 list are mostly dominated by American planes...for me i take things these info/entertainment news with a pinch of salt.

    fighters? B52s are NOT fighters. They are long endurance strategic BOMBERS.
