    What is your favorite aircraft of all time?

    I'm not talking about performance, or guns, or anything like that.

    What I'm talking about is a plane that makes you drool. A plane that stimulates pure speechlessness.

    I, myself, have three:

    B-17G

    H-1

    P-51

    Post your favorites!

    The Spitfire, partly because it was a wonderful aircraft, and partly because that's my Dad at the far right in the picture.
    Talk to the hat, pal.

    The PCA2 (Pitcairn autogiro):


    The Me 262 (this is a 262b- two seater)


    These aircraft are only about 15 years apart in age!

    P-51s made aces, but P-47s brought them home.



    Macchi-Castoldi MC.72. 3000 hp Fiat AS.6 V-24, 443 mph seaplane IN 1934! Imagine what this thing would have done without the floats!
    Who sucked all of the atmosphere out of this joint?

    Just so happens, they normally fly together in The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight:
    The Lancaster bomber. Imagine - 4 merlin engines!
    The elegant Spitfire - an icon in it's own right.
    And the rugged Hawker Hurricane. The backbone of Fighter Command back in those glory days.
