    With the aviation industry increasing in demand day by day, We can look at the past and present to see How mankind has created spectacular aircraft. For me it will have to be the F16 Fighting Falcon, "A single-engine supersonic multi-role fighter aircraft...Designed as an air superiority day fighter" manufactured by the United States Air force. "The Fighting Falcon's key features include a frame-less bubble canopy for better visibility, side-mounted control stick to ease control while maneuvering, a seat reclined 30 degrees to reduce the effect of g-forces on the pilot" Read More The main purpose of Why I adore this aircraft is simply because of its design and maneuverability (you should see this thing fly in person!) with its introduction in 1978 It definitely had a distinctive look compared to its competitors. The F16 had reportedly beaten RAF Eurofighter Typhoons in an Anatolian Eagle air-combat exercise based in Turkey. Key wars the F16 Participated in: Soviet-Afghan War (1979-1989) Operation Opera (1981) Operation Desert Storm (1991) Gulf War (1990-1991)

    Had a Thompson M1A1 at the Belgian Army at 1964 . Perfect weapon shot by shot but difficult on spraying ! I was an Air Force truckdriver and the tommy was handsome beside the driver seat !

    I was hoping someone would include this Wonderful aircraft, This thing was a a beast in the air! A P47 Vs A Mitsubishi Zero was like a T90 Vs a sherman tank, Big, strong and reliable, no wonder the P47 was titled 'Why American enemies cant sleep'

    Certainly sir! this is a stunning plane for its time and today! This plane was a big use especially in Vietnam and in the Arab - Israeli Wars. One of the first air battles involved in the Yom Kippur War involved was 2 Israeli F4 Phantoms engaged 28 Egyptian planes compromising of 20 Mig 17's and 8 Mig 21, Israel had shot down 7 enemy aircraft and the rest of the Egyptians Disengaged, just goes to show this Aircraft was at the top of the table in its time.

    From the jet-age? The best looking plane for me is the F-4 Phantom, such a pretty plane. It has sleek lines and even now it still looks futuristic. And it proved pretty useful!
