Of all time? Has to be the F-16XL that was the loser in the strike aircraft competition (it lost out to the F-15E Strike Eagle).

Why? Great classic 30's racer lines. Reached the south pole. Another Howard Hughes record breaker.

4. F-16XL
Why? Very innovative design by General Dynamics to convert the standard F-16 into a tactical fighter/bomber. The "cranked arrow" design has always looked like a natural progression of the plane for me. I've loved it ever since I first saw it.

5. P-38 Lightning
Why? Twin-engine, twin boom "forked-tail devil". What's not to like?

6. F4U Corsair
Why? Hero of the pacific, and the gull wing design was just so neat. And I grew up watching Black Sheep Squadron.

7. F-100 Super Sabre
Why? Just an overall cool looking jet. The first of the "Century Series".

8. F-106 Delta Dart
Why? Back when I was a kid, Tyndal AFB in Panama City had the Dart. One day we drove by the base and passed the end of the runway just as two were taking off on full berners. About rattled the windows out of the car! It was just a mass of machinery that screamed "lethal".

A6 baby!


I worked on these babies in the military. Really liked them because it was a unique jet. I know they sell mini's but I'll hold out for a larger version.

Can't really say I liked the F-14 or the A-7. F-14 because nothing ever worked consistently on that jet. And the A-7 stuff always looked like someone glued the parts in place.
