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!

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.

In no particular order
The Sioux Helicoper
The Annotov 225- because size matters.
