Fighter: P-51 Mustang. If we split it into props and jets, for jet age I'll take the A-10. What a classic make-my-day aircraft. :cool:

Bomber: how can it not be the B-52? Greatest bomber ever with amazing staying power.

Favourite fighter? Jack Sharkey. Look him up to see why.
Favourite bomber? George Metesky. You'll have to look a little harder for him.

Interestingly, neither of them flew airplanes. Perhaps not a bad thing.

All great nominees. Always thought the F-4 was one of the "coolest" looking A/C too, very distinctive.

I guess I should've added fav cargo and/or fav "other" (intel A/C, CAS A/C, etc) - oops

I use to work for a Ex-Military Pilot who flew the A-10. He absolutely loved it. Said it was a great plane.

Yeah it would really break my heart if a woman who doesn't "get it" wouldn't want to go on a plane or ship I wanted to see. My "dream" ruined! No way could I go w/o her to hold hands with. sniffle.
