Most Beautiful Aircraft

Question that came up in the spotters thread.
What is your favourite Aircraft?
Which do you think is the most beautiful?

Me torn between Spitfire and Hurricane.
 
Spitfire & Hurricane beuatiful aircraft.

Lightning - Such a simple shape. Oh, the performance!!!

I agree Spitfire and Hurricane
Also Concorde, Vulcan and Lancaster



However I've always thought that an F4 Phantom has certain pleasing to the eye qualities especially when taxying with both canopies up

 

Barkers

Oldie: The Mosquito

Newbie: Tornado.....got in and on one once. You know exactly what this beast is for!
