5 Favorite Planes
I've seen this one all over, and figured I needed to chime in. My choices are heavily influenced by my dad's interest in WWII and pre-WWII aviation.
#5: A4 Skyhawk
AKA the Scooter. Still in service in some parts of the world, the Skyhawk was a product of the fertile mind of Ed Heinemann. Also, the only non F-designated aircraft used as the primary aircraft by the Blue Angels (the C-130 doesn't count.)
#4: B-52 Stratofortress
Half a century of service, the BUFF is quite simply the best bomb truck every built.
#3: F7F Tigercat
Designed as a night fighter for the Navy during WWII, it was ready to late. But it's still damn cool looking.
The plane that carried America's paratroops in WWII, in it's civilian form, it still serves as an airliner and commercial cargo planes in some parts of the world.
#1: F4U Corsair
I've loved the Corsair ever since I watched "Baa Baa Black Sheep" as a kid. Most folks love the Mustang and/or the Spitfire, but for me, there's always been something about the Corsair. Maybe it's those bent wings.
