Military Corsairs are absolutely beautiful. To this day, the only art contest I have won involved a drawing of a Corsair and I contend that it was the subject matter and not my "skill" as an artist that won me the award.But if you want to see the military version it's still just as gorgeous.
Hands down, although I have always had a particular fondness for F-4 Phantoms. This is simply due to the squadron of them that used to fly over my childhood home. I have two things I regularly blame for my addiction to aircraft. The first is Burt Rutan (and I have told him this) and the second is the cadre of F-4 pilots from the 181st Tactical Fighter Squadron from the mid-1980s. The fact that Rutan had a lot to do with working the bugs out of the F-4 does not escape me either.Agreed, but if we're talking jet fighters, the early F-86 beats all.
