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

However,

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

Definitely the older planes. The Spitfire of course, it's the noise of the merlin engine that does it for me.
 
I always liked the Buccaneer. However, there were a few occasions when I was overjoyed to see a Skyraider.

Boringly predictable here but for me has to be Concorde and Spitfire, although I always thought the Phantom (F4) had a certain rugged charm.

Concorde and Spitfire though prime examples of if it looks right.

I have to agree with Legs. It's between the Vulcan and the Lancaster for me, but I tend to lean toward the Vulcan.
 
No contest, the Spitfire.
 
Must admit Legs, that Lanc is a good looking bird too.

TSR2 and Avro Arrow. Even sat on the ground they looked like they were doing Mach 2.

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
