    My favourite used to be F-16 Falcon


    Until F-22 Raptor came along


    And my favourite bomber, B2a Spirit. It's worth a mention.

    [QUOTE=Hommie]Mine is the F111!

    F-111

    The F-111 was a multipurpose tactical fighter bomber capable of supersonic speeds. The aircraft was one of the more controversial aircraft ever to fly, yet it achieved one of the safest operational records of any aircraft in USAF history and became a highly effective all-weather interdiction aircraft. As a result of a poorly thought-out development specification, both the Navy and Air Force had become committed, much against their will, to a civilian-inspired "Tactical Fighter Experimental" (TFX) program. This called for developing a single aircraft-the F-111-to fulfill a Navy fleet-defense interceptor requirement and an Air Force supersonic strike aircraft requirement. In retrospect, this was impossible to achieve, especially since planners placed priority upon the Air Force requirement, and then tried to tailor this heavy landplane to the constraints of carrier-based naval operations.


    well, looks like they've learnt a lot from this and got it right with the JSF program

    My fav is the SpitFire. Although they were not the main workhorse of the RAF due to poor manufacturability, it just looks 'perfect'.

    For some reason, I like the Hawker Hunter.
