    The Corsair is my favorite plane...It had manueverability, speed, and firepower.

    Love the zero.

    Im also a fan of the spitfire being that im from London and grew up hearing stories about the spits. went to duxford to see one a couple of times too.

    There is something about the sound of the Merlin engine that really strikes those heart strings hey. Beautiful sound.

    This one gets my vote for best looking piston engine fighter of WW2. And it was no slouch in battle either.
    This magnificent aircraft has the distinction of going from blueprint to prototype in 117 days after the Brits approached North American Aviation for a P-40 contract. Instead, they got something much better than the outdated War hawk. It was originally fitted with an 1100 hp Allison, but the Brits opted for the RR engine (a better choice).

    When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
    An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
    An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
