If the world were a lot cooler, I’d be able to park a MiG-25 in my driveway. It would be the airplane equivalent of a Foxbody Mustang with a big block...Foxbat/Foxbody.

That would be so much better. Going for a cruise means hitting Mach 2 on my way to the West Coast for lunch. Racing F-15s at stop lights. And also, just sitting around looking at the thing.

To quote The Eagles, I think the Foxbat is brutally handsome in the way that Russian jets usually are. All angles and flat edges, very few curves. Just a big god damn titanium sled in which to store enormous engines.

What military aircraft would you park in your Cool World driveway?
