Okay, this is for military aircraft buffs...if you could fly any fighter, bomber, or transport in?

either WW2, Korea, Vietnam, the first Gulf War, or current..what would they be?

Mine would be the P-51 Mustang(WW2)or Supermarine Spitfire(Also WW2), F-86 Sabre(Korea), F-100 Super Sabre, F-4 Phantom, B-52 Stratofortress(Vietnam)...it's incredible the B-52 is still used, what an incredible bomber for it's time.
Desert Storm, I'd love to fly the F-117 Nighthawk, as part of the initial strikes on Baghdad. Also the F-16C Fighting Falcon, Tornado, AV-8 Harrier II, and the F-14 Tomcat...which is now retired from service. Nowadays, it would be cool to fly the F-22 Raptor!!!

Wow, it's almost being in a toy store during Christmas time when I was much younger. So much to choose from.

WWII (fighters) - Mitsubishi A6M Zero, Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate (Frank), Kawanishi N1K2-J Shinden-Kai (George), Vought F4U Corsair with those beautiful gull-wings and Lockheed P-38 Lightning.

WWII (bombers) - Boeing B-17G and North American B-25 Mitchell

WWII (transport) - Douglas C-47 Dakota

Korean - Grumman F9F Panther and North American F-86F

Vietnam - McDonnell Douglas F-4E Phantom II, Lockheed F-104 Starfighter, North American A-5 Vigilante, Douglas A-4 Skyhawk, North American XB-70 Valkyrie and Boeing B-52D with the tall tail.

Definitely, F-14 Tomcat (especially the D model), F-18 of all versions (A thru F), F-15 Eagles & F-16 Falcons, F-22 Raptor, F-20 Tigershark, Saab JAS 39 Gripen & JA 37 Viggen, Mirages, Rafale, MiG 29 & Sukhoi Su 27.

Great question!

"Dogfights" on the History Channel is my favorite show. Can't wait for the new episodes!

I would have to fly the F-22,F/A-18, or the F-15. They have the best killing recordes.

I would choose the spitfire, corsair, su-37, Gripen, Viggen, and the Eurofighter. If there were more of them, don't forget the X-31. The things it can do are amazing.

Most of my time is in sims, so take it for what its worth......

I prefer the Vulcan bomber built by the Avro Co. There is a group in England rebuilding one for air shows. Look at Vulcan558.com. The only one on display in the US is at the Castle AFB museum in Calif.

I would choose the P-51D for WW2 as it was and I feel still is the most beautiful fighter in the world as well as the fastest for it's time. The P-38 was perhaps the best well rounded plane for fighting, ground attack, and light bomber is it was big, maneuverable, and fast. Those were close quarter fighters where you could see the enemy's eyes, so to speak. The same with the F-86 in Korea.

Viet Nam would have been the F-4 Phantom. Anything after that was not really a fighter as you rarely saw the enemy as it was mostly done with missles and radar, but I think the F-14 was and still may be the fastest plane in the air today. Of the modern planes, I would have to pick the SU-27 because it could fly backwards.

Since I have a type rating in the DC-3, we can leave that one out..I would have to say the British Mosquito, a very fast and agile machine.

Having flown the F-102, F-104, F-106 and the F-111 (Viet Nam), I would love a chance to fly the F-15. That has to be the most hellacious fighter in the history of flight.
