I don't have a favourite to fly really, depends on the opponent; however, I'll often choose between the La-7, the Corsair or the Spitfire Mk Vb.

Favourite by looks: tough one. P-40E perhaps?

Most wanted: that's easy, as for PF, we definitely need the CW-21b AND, most important, the CA-13 Boomerang!!! Someone read and react, please!!!

Cheerio,

I don't mean to step on any boots here..I don't intend any offense, but I am surprised by the many who think the German designs look good. Personally, I've always thought they were hideous and often wondered why the designers weren't gassed or something. When drawing pictures of planes on my notebook in school, I always drew the Mustang or Flying Fortress (with a few extra turrets of course and an endless stream of falling bombs).

Favourite to fly: P-38, Ki-43, Yak-9
Favourite by looks: P-51D - "The Cadillac of the Sky", F4U, Zero
Most wanted: F8F-2 (**** the rest)

I dunno about that MO_JOJO, while the German propplanes are pretty buttugly for the most part you gotta admit the Buck Rogers/Doc Savage styling of their X-planes like the Ho229 are pretty cool. The Germans really knew their Art Deco.

And the Me262 looks like the meanest skysharkiest killer plane in the sky.

You're right to correct me, Civildog.

I have become more accustomed to seeing the Nazi planes in this game, so they don't seem as bad now. One thing I'll give them credit for is their machines looking sinister. But for the most part, I don't think they had the beautiful lines that many of the mentioned Allied planes had, save for maybe the ones you pointed out.

Please don't use the term "nazi" when reffering to german planes/tehnology, since the ppl that developed them didn't necessarily had to be mebers of the national-socialist party. (in fact the term "nazi" isn't really correct, the aprpriate term for what you are trying to define is "national-socialist).
Beside you have to realize that each person has it's own scale of values, and everyone will like a different design, you can't expect everyone to like the Mustang, or the Me262.
