    I can name many, but this is one of my favorites. Bristol Blenheim in the Finnish Air Force.

    Finns sometimes added a 4th man to the crew, during the Winter War. His mission was to shoot at Red Army troops crowded on narrow forest roads, with a Suomi submachine gun, when the plane was flying low. I read this from the Finnish Wikipedia article and thought it was rather obscure, how can you hit with an SMG, from a plane that is going 300 km an hour .

    I'm very surprised that no.one has mentioned the English Electric Lightning, one of the fasted aircraft ever built, and mainly because it was nearly all engine, with one of the thinnest wing designs there's been, and a roar of engine like no other, to see one go vertical at take off was unreal

    Perhaps considered the ugly ducklings, but to the grunts on the ground in need of close air support, there few sights as beautiful as one of these rolling on in. There is just something about opening up the whole can of kick ass!
