P-38 Lightning or a A-10 Warthog!

I had 2500+ hours in an RF-4C and I would fly it again in a heart beat! Dr. Ken Nolde

I'd have to go with the F-22 Raptor. Lots of good answers here already but I would prefer to fly the best aircraft available. As far as historical aircraft, I've always had a place in my heart for the B 17 and the men who served flying and crewing it. I flew the T-38 for several years then KC-135s (ex Air Force)

F-8 Crusader, state of the art in 1950's, supersonic, carrier capable and the last aircraft designed from the first mark on paper as a true Gunfighter controlled by the pilot, not a computer.

Ever since "Baa Baa Black Sheep" I have been in love with the Corsair.  The wing design is cool and it would be great to fly one.

I have always been a fan of the Spitfire, Mosquito, SR-71, P-38, B-17, FW190, M-15, F-86,so many birds to fly, but a nice dream.

Elden Williams USAF Retired. P-51 aka F-6 was my combat plane in Europe but my answer would be Bell p-39. I did a lot of test work at various times and learned a lot the average fighter jock didn't know such as nose high cross control turns just barely above stall to win dog fights. It saved me when 3 ft of left wing was rendered inop after mid-air with a towed target that has been shot off. Loved the servo trim tabs. Hated the later mods (smaller gas tanks, small air intakes leading edge of wings - you learn how to taxi at 60mph plus). Had a chance to buy one with 7:30 hours after the war for $700. Had to choose P-39 or family. Came home with BT-13.

USAF FIGHTER Jock and strictly a North American addact. Cut my teeth on the F86 SABER. Have about 1000 hrs military that includes all models except D. All models of F100. Another 12-1500 hrs. civilian  A/c. Owned an Executive Aircraft Leasing Service at one time and one of the the A/c in my inventory was a plushed out, king size bed, bar, etc. Baker25. The only reason I mention this is next to the Saber, that you did not get into but you PUT ON!!!!, I loved flying that BAKER 25. Go figure??????????
