Do like the Huey, for hauling stuff but I LOVE the OH-6 and scouting through the trees. Here's a pic of one of my birds back in 1970.

I love the B1. Saw them when deployed in 06. Loved sitting near End of Runway when they hit the throttle, they would change your heart rhythm....

but my baby is the F-15E. 4 years in avionics. I loved that grey turd...

There are too many planes/helos I love and I don't want to choose.
A-10 best ground attack
CH-53E If we can't carry it you don't need it 36K max load (CH-53S is on the way)
B-1B OMG nothing that big should be that fast
DeHavaland Mosquito They put a cannon in one in WW II... A CANNON!
F4U Corsair just damn that's pretty
F-18 just because one scared the crap out of me at 29 Palms flying very low level out to the range to drop something nasty.

Grumman A6 Intruder-18,000 lb payload,3200 mile range. Not even the F-14 or the F/A-18 Super Hornet can touch that.

The A6 was indeed a work horse. When I was on the Kitty Hawk we were pulled out of Hong Kong because of its all weather capabilities

Douglas DC-3
Vought F4U Corsair
Valkerie B-70
Republic F-105 Thunderchief
B1-Lancer

To name a few. Not a pilot in the real world but I fly the heck out of Microsoft Flight sim X. Pretty much built my computer around it.
