    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

    there's no number 5 as both the F-86 and MiG-15 are joint fourth. however, my favourite plane is the F/A-18. unfortunately, it's in position 11th on the list. damn...

    F-86 Sabre. Cool man when firing those six-fifties.

    My fav plane is the A330 (my last flight into the now-defunct Kai Tak Airport in HKG was on a Cathay A330) and the A340-200 or -300 se (the ones with the CFM56 "hairdryer" engines, which took me all the way from HKG to Toronto nonstop, again on Cathay).

    i'd say the Airbus planes look nicer compared to the Boeings. however, the 787 Dreamliner is a beauty... but i never like the looks of the 747s.

    Have you noticed the middle landing gear (of the main ldg gear) on a certain model of the A340 is short when the gear is down for landing. It doesn't touch the ground unlike the 2 outer gears. Or does it fully extend only under certain conditions?

    Indeed Airbus looks better then Boeing. However in terms of handling characteristic, 747 is a much stable platform. Till date, even second hand 747s is still much expensive than 777s

    probably as a backup when the primary fails.

    sideline a bit... some road trailers if you noticed, their wheels do not touch the road where the others do.

    I loved the cool looking F 14 Tomcat..... especially in shows, and you see the wings open and close in the air, and when they land on the carrier......

    Commercial jet, I like those DC 9.... is it DC 9/10.... those smaller planes with 2 engine at the back ones...... Should be out of production.... even service......

    I am not as hard core as the rest, but I enjoy reading all your discussion and it is interesting...... A 10, the tank killer look cool too......

    Newer planes, I think the Rafale look nice....
