I got a sweet spot for the F-16AM and the Mig-29G

01-28-2002, 09:05 PM

Can't beat it!


01-28-2002, 09:47 PM
My favoirte would be the F-4 Phantom.

01-28-2002, 09:50 PM

cuz, it's huge but can turn on a dime. very menacing yet pretty to look at.


01-28-2002, 10:53 PM
B-1 because it makes your insides rattle during air show fly-bys. All that power is impressive.

01-28-2002, 10:57 PM
Either MiG-29SMT or Su-35/Su-35UB http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

01-28-2002, 11:01 PM
Favorite plane not concerning lo-mac?

There are so many too choose from. But I'll have to go with the swedish Saab J35F/J Draken. Probably the most beautiful jet ever built. With it's dubbeldelta it is one of the most distinctive shapes in the sky!
In it's fastest version, the D-model, it could climb >15000ft/min reach a speed of more than M2. In the early 60's it actually went supersonic in a climb without using afterburner, a powerful sales argument, and eventually it was exported to Denmark, Finland, and Austria.
Austria is the only operator today but over 604 Drakens where built totally.

For some nice pictures of it go to www.airliners.net (http://www.airliners.net) and search for saab J35 Draken.

01-29-2002, 02:16 AM
either the Tornado...or F-111

Tomcat. Oops sorry, that was disrespectful.

The Grumman F-14 "Tomcat" fleet defense fighter.

Now that's better!

fav plane is one that most don't know about. The YF-12. Kelly Johnson's finest. mach 3+ interceptor version of the A12 that later became the SR71. It had all the speed and altitude of the blackbird with look-down shoot-down radar for air to air. no dogfighter but pure interceptor. Dont belive me goto the US Air Force experimental hangar on wright-patterson AFB...you can put your hands on it. I did

There's only one - we all know the answer - it's been done before on the Flanker site. Heaving mass of metal engineered by blonde geniuses in a beautiful country. True multi-role fuel guzzling thrusting hulk of a beast - the unsurpassed Saab J-37 Viggen. If God could fly a military jet he would surely strap on the Viggen and afterburner his way around the cosmos....

I was lucky to see live what I think was the second last airshow flight of the last Finnish Draken in service with special yellow painting. I was actually following the flight with one austrian friend of mine so it was truly a Draken meeting of a best kind. And we both agreed it was a great plane. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I think the flight can still be found also from one homepage.

Avro Arrow baby. Canadian made wonder. Sadly the stupidest prime minister in our history destroyed the program in favour of missile defence. The avro arrow had more turning and speed capabilities than almost all modern aircraft in the air force today. It woulda meant total air superiority for canada. Alas, our goverment destroyed THAT hope.

Antique Fighter- Me-109K-4, cause its a very fast, agile, well armed and pretty plane.

Modern Fighter- Mirage 2000, Have never flown it in a simulator so I haven't had the oppertunity to get bored with it yet.

Antique Bomber- Dunno, I was always too busy blasting them to shreds in my Me-109.

Modern Bomber- B-52, There easy to hit

Helicopter- Ka-50 Hokum, cause its the best there is.

It's only illegal if you get cought.

Damn Officer, you must have been doin' like 150mph to catch up with me!

As a matter of fact I did turn my post-ban Ar15 into a pre-ban AR15.

02-01-2002, 06:29 PM
The Tornado.

Why is there no modern sim with the Tornado flyable ?? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

02-01-2002, 07:27 PM
If Eurofighter Typhoon is half as good as it promises to be, then It's gonna be my favourite plane for the next 50 years. For now, I can compromise with F-14 Tomcat. It's rather a missile launnhing platform than a real aircraft, but I can't forget the impression it gave me on "Top Gun"! I just loved it...

02-02-2002, 03:43 AM
Anyone who doesn't say the F-15E is just plain wrong.

02-02-2002, 05:42 PM
Has anyone noticed there are no WW1 era plane listed? Am I the only one here who likes the good ole' Fokker D-VII???

My favorite aircraft:

For the looks: Sukhoi Su-30, very very elegant.

Plus the DC 3 Dakota, the DC 10 passenger aircraft, the Mi-24 gunship, the F-4, the sleek F-5, the Dassault Rafale and Saab Gripen. As a matter of fact, I really like modern European fighters, but I found out that the Eurofighter was a dissappointing multi-role fighter compared with the Rafale.

07-24-2002, 04:30 PM
So what plane has the most votes sofar? The F15C right?

07-24-2002, 05:02 PM
1.) Typhoon
2.) Rafale
3.) Gripen

Also good F-15, F-16, F/A-18, F-22, Mirage 2000, Mig-29 and Su-27 series.

07-24-2002, 09:10 PM
That would be F-16. Actually, it's my favorite because I have used _a lot_ of my life being fascinated by that plane. I have no idea, how many hours I've been staring straight up in the sky looking at those beauties. To me, the F-16 always seem to have this special crisp sound when flying by.

Nice move by the Royal Danish Airforce to use the Viper... really nice.
I still have the dream of flying it one day. I'll try to make it through the first stages next year.

If I had a second choice, it would have to be the MiG-29. Man, just the looks... Never seen one in real life, though. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Surely, if they knew of my divided heart, I would certainly risk losing them both. ...but I cannot choose between the two. Oh the secrets and the lies. Woe is me...

Although I can't say it's my favorite aircraft of all time, i've got to say that I have a tremendous amount of respect for the Chance-Vought F-8U Crusader. Last of a dying breed in the USAF, and my favorite Vietnam era aircraft. (4x20mm's...love it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif ). Runner-up would be the A-1 Skyraider.

Favorite modern aircraft:
1: SU-33 Flanker
2: F-15E Strike Eagle
3: A-10 Thunderbolt
4: MiG-29A Fulcrum
5: F-14 Tomcat

Favorite modern helos:

2: Mi-35 Hind E
3: KA-52 Werewolf

Favorite WW2 era Aircraft:
1: Chance-Vought F-4U Corsair
2: Messerschmitt 262A-1a "Schwalbe"
3: P-38K Lightning (Variant never put into production, and ironically the best of the P-38 series)
4: Hawker Sea Fury

All-time favorite ever?

The F-14D Super Tomcat.

In a 1 v 1 engagement and unrestricted ROEs, there isn't a aircraft in the world that would survive against it.

Favorite Fighter that never was?

The F-5G/F-20 Tigershark.

If General Dynamics and the USAF had not lobbied so hard against it we would have been seeing a bunch of them in foreign service...

My Second favorite Fighter is the venerable F-4 Phantom. This plane just keeps going and going and going...
