Although I'm a big fan og the P-51. I think this is the sexiest plane ever made.

....... Wellllll, how about a P51 piloted by a 19 year old Gracie Slick? That would do it for me.

P51's are great, and I know that had to be an awesome experience, but I feel inclined to agree with previous poster as sextiest WWII aircraft as

Hey, hey, hey nobody defiles my beloved Jug that way! >(
The Corsair is the bastard child of a Stuka and a IAR 80 and everyone knows it./i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif Sheesh
But I must agree the P-51 and Spitfire are the sexiest plnaes ever built. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif But the Jug should get the fat girl award too, she was big but beautiful. In fact I bet she had a great personality. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Had a P51D take off from John Wayne Airport over the Back Bay area. That Merlin/Packard engine sounding so deep and powerful.

Truely a bueatiful sight ! The Spits are amazing too.



I love the P47 too, but sexy ?

Why do you think they call it the Jug--as in milk jug ?



The F4U Corsair has some sexy lines and is a great looking fighter.

The cowlings of the P47 and F4U are completely different and in no way resemble each other--one being eliptical(P47) and one being round (F4U).


In comparing planes, I would say the 190 more closely resembles the bastard child of the 39' Fiat G.50 (nose) and the Rumanian line of IAR 80's.

Braveheart's William Wallace said it best:
"I see a whole army of my countrymen, here in defiance of tyranny. You have come to fight as free men, and free men you are. What will you do without freedom? Will you fight? Fight and you may die. Run, and you'll live, at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willing, to trade all the days from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies, that they may take our lives, but they'll never take our FREEDOM!"
