Some of my favorites.

The P-38 always struck me as a beautiful design, the Mosquito has always been something else to me. I’ve seen one of the very few remaining flyable Mosquitoes at the Military Aviation Museum, she has a rather interesting, albeit cramped, cockpit layout.

The next one, the F4U Corsair, just a tough, incredible fighter.

The Lockheed F-104 Starfighter always looked like it lived up to its name. Long, sleek, slender, and fast. Not SR-71 fast, but very fast in her own right.

Just a few. The Staggerwing especially, the design always seemed elegant to me.

The next one has always been one of my favorites. I had to be sneaky about watching the show when I was a wee lad ... whenever Airwolf was on, the show would be derided as being unrealistic. Loved the Lady then, still love her now.
