The ones I like, but haven't decided on my favorite yet:

EE/BAC Lightning F.6

Blackburn Buccaneer

Hawker Sea Hawk

F4J/FGR2 Phantom

Hawker Hunter

F-100 Super Sabre

DH100/101 Vampire/Venom

DH Mosquito

Bristol Beaufighter

Hawker Typhoon

P-47 Jug

P-40

FW190

Neiuport 11 and 17

Bristol Scout

Sopworth Pup

As you can probably see, I do like a slightly ugly, but purposeful and 'meaty' looking aeroplane.

Starting to appreciate the Hawk/T-45, but not many of these new 1980s onwards delta/stealthy type jets flik my switch, there are a bit similar - typhoon, gripon, rafael, etc. There is something appealing about the F35 though, but from the f14 onwards they all look a bit boring IMHO.

I'm like Christian, I have a list of favourites and I would be hard pushed to say thats the one.

Spitfire, Lancaster, Mosquito, Beaufighter, Sea fury, Canbera, Lightning, Vulcan, Bucaneer, and Phantom F4.

All, in their time and in their class were probably as good as you got.

I could probably also add SE5A Bristol fighter and F14 Tomcat as well.

I suppose at the end of the day, the sound that moves me most and really gets into my soul is the Merlins of the Spitfire and  the Lancaster and the 4 Olympus of the Vulcan.

Unfortunately each class of aircraft has its swans and ugly ducklings. Warbirds it has to be the Spitfire and mosquito, jets....undoubtedly the Hunter will always shine brighter than the others. Biplanes.... so many. This one stole my heart. The Fairey Fantome.

As Ady got in first with the Fantome, here's my second choice laugh

Altough Concorde is my favourite by miles, the Vulcan is lovely! Some shots from Duxford today.
