Interesting. A lot of old faithfuls missing. Some of those in that final 10 wouldn't have made my top 100 (just saying). Makes you wonder how big the purely civil crowd is compared to us.

Gonna be a few whiners along in a moment, methinks. I would start with the Whirlwind, but I'm far too nice. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Lancair 320 is one of the best looking a/c, but sure the Spitfire is the most sexiest, as it has so many curves and stuff.

But the Mk.22 the most sexy a/c??? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Geeez what are those guys smoking lol.
The last three are the "sexiest" three on their list. Who of the non-gay population would put a Spit and a bunch of civies before F-86 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif Not to even mention F22 and Sr71 and the fatal flaw of not having P51D there.
Also pretty much all British jets from the 50-70's are more "sexy" than any plane on that list.
They could choose, Lightning, Hawker Hunter, Buccaneer, etc. and they choose Vulcan? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/touche.gif

List is porked http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Yeah, quite why they felt obliged to post a picture of an LF.V I don't know, especially since they could just have not bothered to specify a mark...

Hard to argue with the #1 pick. But for me, my list is of good looking aircraft is so long its very hard for me to pick a favorite. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I don't really see what the appeal of the F-22 is. I always thought that the Russian jets had much more aesthetic appeal. Also seems a bit weird that they have those crappy little civilian planes but don't mention Concorde.

Curious list, some I'd expect most I'd not. The Vulcan's a beast but sexy? Like elephants are sexy.

strange choices in my book but you cant argue with a spit being chosen as #1, though why they defined it down to a mkXXII is beyond me.

I never saw the appeal of the Blackbird myself.

Curious, very curious list. I can't argue with the Spitfire topping it (not my personal favourite mark, but a Spitfire nevertheless), but I miss some 1930ies planes, like the Hind. There are few American designs I would nominate well before the F-22 (which looks kins of ******ed in an odd way) and the Blackbird which very obviously wasn't made for the looks.

I would consider a Victor sexy, but the Vulcan? Right, BF, no Constellation? I consider that list to be bizarre. No Morane Bullet? No Albatros D.V?!!! I'd rate the Boeing Model 299 through B-17D extremely sexy. No Mosquito? LeO 45? Ki-46---Surely one of the sexiest airplanes ever to fly. I'd rate an F-104 over an F-86 any day. There are so many downright erotic airplanes a top ten list is ridiculous. Top hundred more realistic.

I agree. I admit to liking the look of the F-22, but the Flanker beats it out for looks. There's something about that aircraft that says "Hot Damn!".

But, again, the list is missing quite a few aircraft, but in the end it's only 10 planes, and includes both civilian and military a/c. If they did a top 25, I'm sure there would be some notables on the list.

Like getting ill?

Why the Mk.22 with all those bulges on top of the wings, and those hotdogs sticking out the front? And that dorsal fin like a whale.

Spit I or V would have been better. I think people get biased by UFO like handling, when they should just be voting on looks.

Agree 100%

Also would pick the Spit or P40.

Remember that this list was made by pilots of modern civvie aircraft. WTF do they know about pretty planes?

This is a complete SHAM! The staff at P & P mag should be embarrassed enough to resign in unison and hand those positions over to more qualified personnel. FE_pilot came a h&ll of a lot closer without debate(though I think he meant to place a zero where his seven is and bump it up to #1). A troop of girl scouts could have came closer than this! I wouldn't be surprised to hear hard drugs were being consumed during this process.
I wonder how many subscription will get canceled over this debacle?
