If money were no object and you would have all the training and maintenance support you would need to fly safely, what warbird would you want to own and fly? I know it's a tough decision, but if I had to pick just one I think I could "make do" with a Hawker Hurricane, maybe an early Hurricane I for a Battle of Britain feel or maybe 4 x 20mm IIC or a 2 x 40mm IID with tropical filter for that hunting-the-Afrika-Korps vibe. How about you? No cheating, you get just one choice!

Were money no object? An S-3 Viking. In authentically gaudy '70s USN paint scheme on the outside but gutted of all the electronics and internal hard points and done up as a private jet.

I'm "practical" like that.

I will start with a B-25 and go until I run out of room on the ramp.

Added---- Yes a ramp, NOT a tarmac. Tarmac is incorrectly used to describe an airport apron or RAMP. The first time I heard tarmac used to describe the airport ramp or apron, it was about 30 years ago by a dumb *** reporter trying to sound like she knew what she was talking about. Tarmac is a word to describe what material the Ramp may be or not made from.
