Sea Harrier FRS1- true hero of the Falklands and last British aircraft to shoot down an enemy.
It's a lot less bover in the hover

The problem, or is it beauty, of such a topic is you choose one and then you see other suggestions and you think "..oh yeah, they're cool too..." I'm thinking Vulcan and A-10 here.. :rock:

Fave aircraft ever, hmm, for a warbird it would have to be a Mosquito with out doubt!

There's just something special about this plane; the sound it makes, I get goosebumps, its was an exciting plane to watch.

However, for a jet its quite difficult for me as I really love the Phantom but I would have to say, the F3 English Electric Lightning has got my vote. I remember at RAF Mildenhall in 1987/88 seeing one of the final displays by two F3's making a fast pass then straight up into the clouds and that was that. What an incredible awesome sight!
