BAC Lightning.
Two engines with two wings strapped on.
If you have seen one stand on its tail and climb, you would understand.
I was lucky enough to see one close up go for the world climb record from 0-60,000 Ft. Unbelievable is the only word to describe it!!
I was also lucky enough to see one of the last RAF displays back in '84.

Good choice! :)

Harrier Jump Jet, good enough to fight thousands of miles from home, flying from Aircraft Carriers and Container ships in the South Atlantic in the Falklands war, 1982. 37cf8633430586f6f161770c07734aa9.jpg

Looks like I voted "other" in this thread a while back, but never explained, so I will now: A10. I have to say I'm a little shocked this flying tank/cannon was not in the list!

Some really cool aircraft in this thread, guys. I didn't even know about the BAC Lightning.


So far the SR-71 is way ahead in the poll as the most awesomest airplane, and not undeservedly.

Gonna have to say my favorite chopper is the Huey Cobra. I like how narrow they are.

The Apache is probably the most awesomest though. The RAH-66 Comanche stealth helicopter would have taken the crown it it hadn't been canceled.

Yeah I always liked the Cobra better than the Apache too. But if it was real, I'd take Airwolf!
