Considering the douglas dc-3 is my absolute favorite (thanks FS9 & FSX!) i love the AC-47 gunship "spooky"

Following in a close second is, naturally, the AC-130 "spectre" gunship.

And after that, the B-17 and B-52 of course... (see a trend here? I like big, heavy, well armed planes. Lol) Then A-10, P-51 and SR-71. of course i like a lot more but it says "favorites" not likes.

Almost went to aviation school though. Realized i like auto mechanics a lot more.

I've always liked the P-51D's, so, I decided to build a 1/5th Scale R/C one. lol

The F-16 is one of my favourites.







Got to get up close and personal with the contingent from the Royal Dutch Air Force on their visit into town last year.

Can they take off with 3 FULL external tanks, or do they do an aerial refueling to top them off?
