    Unfortunately there are so many planes to choose from that the question is unfair to answer.

    Maybe a quick categorial line up would help out as in: Military / civilian.
    Or before jet era & after?
    American or Otherwise?

    Without a doubt I would go for the SR-71 Blackbird as my favorite military aircraft closely followed by the F-14 Tomcat. I love the Rafale though and the MiG 29 Fulcrum was just awesome in it´s time. The F-22 as well as the F-15 are also quite nice..

    Civilian aircraft would have to be: Drums please... The TU 144!!

    Yeah, I know it´s Russian & it´s a copy of the Concorde BUT, it was built first, flew first and faster than the Concorde which is IMHO was a hell of an achievement for 1968.
    And let´s try and remain objective in this case. It still holds the record of being the fastest civilian passenger plane in the world.
    Solely because of the accident in Paris ´71 it became unworthy of international air travel. But after a stunt like that, I don´t think even the Concorde would have survived.
    Stupid show off pilot !

    I saw Delmar Benjamin fly his replica Gee Bee R2 at Oshkosh many times... a beautiful airplane indeed.

    I could go with anything from the "Golden Age" of aviation: Gee Bee, Waco Taperwing, Travelair Mystery Ship...



    I used to work for Jim Younkin, owner and builder of this Mystery Ship replica, which I believe is the only flying one at this time. Radial engines are fantastic machines.

    I prefer big but elegant passenger aircrafts such as Boeing 777, 767 etc.

    A380 is an extremely big jet but I don't think of it as a beauty...

    Everyone who is interested in aviation should check out this channel: VIESpotting - YouTube

    A friend of mine is into plane-spotting and would be happy to get more subscribers - I really like his videos
