What plane of FB is your favourite (in reality)?

I hesitate, but I think the P40 B/C - Hawk 81 is my favourite plane of all. Things would come even more complicated if they added the P51A though.

Always liked the look of the 109 ( despite growing up in a Commonwealth country - just call me weird http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif )

P-38 hands down is my favorite WWII aircraft! I do fancy Spitfires, Corsairs and all sorts of other twin engined planes like A-26, mosquito, Beau etc....but the Lightning is #1

You, my friend, have exquisite taste!

P-38 lover myself, though I also like the Corsairs, Do-335s, and the P-39s.

Somehow, the P-39s look like single-engined P-38s, and are just as wonderful to look at. Too bad they didn't quite live up to their expectations...

My favorite Russian plane is the Mig-3; a beutiful girl, sleek, great lines, just a gorgeous plane, and fun to fly in the sim http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

American it's gotta be the F6F, cause she gets no loving, she's big, fat, but beautiful once you get to know her http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

P-40, Ki-61, Mc 205. Has anyone been flying the Ki-61 lately? It's an absolute beauty to fly. Rock solid, turns beautifully, its a brand new plane http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

P-40 E/M series all the way!

It performs pretty well at lower alts and has decent speed and energy. Gun platform rocks and with the desynced guns I've been getting tons more kills.

Dude, that's like asking me to pick one of my children!!!
(actually I only have one)

but my favorite plane is, Mossie, wait no, Mustang, but then there's Hellcat, wait no Spitfire, or is it the Lightning, but I really like the Mitchell, then of course the Warhawk, ...

Aw shoot, I can't decide http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

Man, I so love this description. I want to fly the Jug now, so I can repeat those words all the time!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Performance aside, there is no comparison. The Lightning screams over the competition. But I'm a big twin fan. I'm starting to like the sleak lines of the Mossie, and I've always loved the A-26, and it's earlier cousin the A-20 (favorite light bomber in game).

Hurricane IIb. Its a beaty. Then Me 109G2.

I am terrible in all of them anymore...

Guess I'll find a good train sim.

My favourite plane to fly in this has to be the zeke! Doesn't matter which one I just think it's a blast to fly! Plus I love getting into those turn battles with it, especially with the spits it's really fun http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

P-51 is the gal I like to spend the most time with. She's slender, beautiful, sophisticated and versatile. Not unlike Halle Berry.

In fact many planes can be compared to women:
P-47: Tyra Banks
P-38: Serena Williams
Bf-109: Katerina Witt
F4U: Salma Hayek

Used to be the Mig-3u but now it's the FW-190 with which I spent much of my flying time.

02-13-2006, 04:13 PM
Do-335, because:

1. It drives so many people crazy. Very entertaining.

2. Climbs like a witch.

3. It's fast. I like fast.

4. If the @#$% tail gunner hit's your forward engine, you just keep flying with the other one.
