    I'm thinking those two would be enough for me, but when I saw the Spitfire I realized there was that, and it's plywood "buddy" the Mosquito!

    Guns and Planes... toys boys love.

    My favorites;

    B-17G "Nine o' Nine" at Moffett NAS, Ca. 2002


    P-38 Lightning - Feared by the Japanese, Hated by the Germans.
    Shown in D-Day invasion stripes paint scheme.


    P-51 - Nothing sounds as nice as a Merlin-powered Mustang!


    Aluminum Overcast: B-36 Peacemaker - Six turnin' & four burnin'

    Only in Texas - Size comparison B29 vs. B36A

    The B36 - a.k.a. the box the B-52 came in.


    B-58 Hustler - SAC's Mach 2 Bomber circa 1957

    Honorable Mentions:

    XB-70 Valkyrie - Always a bridesmaid...


    SR-71 - Faster, higher, longer than anyone else. This (sonic) boom's for you!


    F-4 Phantom II - McDonell-Douglas' proof that given enough thrust, even a brick will go Mach 2.

    F-86 Sabre Jet - Clean, nimble and a pilot's plane.

    P-47 Thunderbolt - The Brooklyn tough guy of fighters.

    Supermarine Spitfire - Britian's savior

    My turn:

    P-51 Mustang. Pretty yet deadly like a Southern Belle.


    B-52 AKA BUFF. The fist of an angry god.


    A-10 warthog. Design a plane around a gun? Genius!


    C-47 Dakota. The Jeep with wings and still flying after 70 years.


    F 22 Raptor. After I saw it doing the impossible things it did during the Ari and Sea Show in Ft Lauderdale, this is just an awsome machine.

    PS: I protest the limit of 5 planes. BillCA added the SR-71 which is also on my list and I like the Bronco too. Five planes is just too short of a list.

    I'm suprised nobody has mentioned the F16 yet.
    Its the work horse of the usaf, light, cheap and does well at any role they put it in.

    I'll play. And for a real departure.

    J-3 Cub. More pilots earned their first wings on this than any other with the possible exception of the Cessna 150/152/172.

    P-51 Lightning. Gotta be on the list. No excuses.

    P-47 Thunderbolt. Toughest fighter airplane in any theater during WWII

    UH-1 Huey. Best Jack-of-all-trades helicopter ever. It may not have been the best at anything it did, but it did anything it tried.

    A-26 Invader. It flew in 3 wars. WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. In Vietnam, it flew with more payload on it's wing hardpoints than it had internally durning WWII. And that wing payload was in addiiton to it's internal bomb bay.

    And I'm gonna cheat. Number 6 is:

    PBY-5 Catalina. Considered obsolete at the start of WWII. It went on to serve as an Air-Sea Rescue plane, Anti-sub, bomber, night attack. And anything with a 3000 mile range has got something going for it.

    Hawker Sea Fury
    A1-E Skyraider (a.k.a the dump-truck
    B-52 Stratofortress (it's as old as I am! Almost share a birthday!)
    F-101 Voodoo (Haulin' A**)
    F8-U Crusader (The Gunfighter!)
    A7 Intruder (Built like a tank)
    C-130 Hercules (Hercey-Bird, you call, we haul!)
    C-47/DC-3 - Slow & Steady

    Im happy to see such good tastes in aircraft with you folks.
    But only one other person likes the OV-10 Bronco?
    That aircraft is amazing considering what it is.

    Hell it can even deploy 6 SPEC OP's guys parachuting from the rear cargo door.
    It was used a lot during Vietnam planting really secretive tactical forces in areas where being discreet was of utmost importance.
    Its still in use today, and many many of our friendly countries are using it too.

    Here, I'll give you one last chance to fall in love with this plane:
