    Mustang is the best World War II plane.... and very powerful... but I like the historical facts of Japanese Zeros....

    The Spitfire, as it's graceful, responsive movement was a joy to fly according to The Few. Also a beautiful looking machine.

    there are several   1 and always first the B-25B bomber used on the Doolittle raid and in so many other variants in the war.
    Secondly the P61 Black Widow night fighter,  I just always loved the style and function of this airplane

    and third the Heinkel H111 bomber used by the Luftwaffe in the Battle of Britain and other uses.  The brave crew who flew this plane deserve to be remembered and I liked the glass nose.

    And 4th but not least the Dehaviland Mosquito  WHAT a wonderful airplane fast and many uses

    The Mustang is an awfully sexy aircraft, and the Dehaviland mosquito was a tight and tough airplane that handled like a dream...My favorite is the F4U Corsair...Mainly because my Dad flew them as a Marine pilot in WW2...He said they handled like a truck at slow speeds but was quick in the turn and dive positions...Their advantage over the more agile Zero was armament and protection, like self-sealing fuel tanks and pilot seat protection...He was involved in only one aerial confrontation with a Zero,and that turned out indecisive with a probable to his credit...He provided mostly close air support to Marines landing at Tarawa and Iwo Jima... ...
