    THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AIRPLANES

    OK I started the P-51 thread and now I was just thinking what in your opinion is your best looking aircraft. Here is mine: My all time favorite is tied. The conny and the F-16 are tied in my book. Other ones that makes me bulge is the P-51, Vulcan, F-100,b-58 hustler.
    Whats yours?

    RE: THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AIRPLANES

    Mine is the F7F TigerCat and better yet take a ride in the back seat of one for an hour and when your flight is over, you'll look for a cigarette
    What an incredible ride!

    RE: THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AIRPLANES

    All the aircraft mentioned so far share a common feature: They are slick, smooth-skinned metal birds. My idea of beauty is a bit different.

    It is, after all, in the eye of the beholder. In "our" world my onlypick would be:

    I think it has something to do with the hours I spent running a wind tunnel in college. It tended to "shape" my mind!

    Right now, this one. Italian. It just exudes elegance! Need I say more? I'm very partial to Pfalz types, especially the DIII.

    Mustang, Spitfire, and the Corsair.

    The Concord is defiantly up there.
    So is the B-1 Bomber! I saw it make it's first flight from Palmdale, Ca. Plant 42 to Edwards. Before they de-tuned it, it had HUGE engines. I also saw on in a holding pattern at the Prescott VOR, Drake, with a student that I wa instructing. He was above us about 15 thousand feet with the wings extended! wallace.tharp
