    Default What do you believe is the most aesthetically pleasing military aircraft made.

    Hi All,
    What do you believe is the most aesthetically pleasing military airframe ever made?
    Any era or type

    We will all differ in opinion and it will be great to see the likes of others.

    Mine is the Vought F7U Cutlass Twin engine Naval fighter.
    First flown in 1948 and based on WW2 Arado research this innovative design reached it's first operational squadron (VF-81) in 1954.
    Production ceased with the F7U-3 in 1955.
    It was not the best carrier fighter of it's era and was accident prone with over 25% of all production lost.

    She's a honey though

    Interesting thread ! To me a very hard decision.

    I choose the Kyushu J7W Shinden "Magnificent Lightning".

    As far as best sounding, I love the sound of the Mustang as it passes by. The wind over the gun ports makes a distinct sound.
    Als die Nazis die Kommunisten holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Kommunist.
    Als sie die Sozialdemokraten einsperrten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Sozialdemokrat.
    Als sie die Gewerkschafter holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Gewerkschafter.
    Als sie die Juden holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Jude.
    Als sie mich holten, gab es keinen mehr, der protestieren konnte.
