    If you had the chance to go for a ride, in which military aircraft would you prefer to fly, and why? (If you could only pick one!)

    P-51D or F-15

    No, you can't say, both!!!:D Just one!

    Got a preference other than the two listed above? Go ahead and post it, just remember, ONE choice!!
  2. A-10:D gotta love that GAU-8/A:D:D

    Definitely the P-51!!! Love that Roll-Royce 12 cylinder, like a really hot sports car.:) That's when flying was still flying. Just a man and the sky above:D

    I loved the P-51. Got to sit in one once. Got a ride in an F-86 once. Got arrested at 8 years old for taking pictures of my favorite, though. The Son of 51.

    (My all time favorite is still the P-38 Lightning)

  5. I'd choose the F-15 in a heartbeat. Why choose a Model A when you can have a Lamborghini? :D

    Hey! My Model A had a Dodge 440 in the rumble seat. (For awhile. 'Til we tried to take that curve and the clutch didn't release.)

    Since only the two, bummer. I would say the P-51D. The sound of the engine is ossom. A real thrill though would be the SR-71 oh-yea.

    Of the two listed, definitely the good ol' Mustang for me. Out of all the ones not listed, probably an A6M Zero. I just wouldn't want to have a Corsair or a Hellcat on my tail!
  10. P51, a real aeroplane, no computers just metal and cables. The F15 is a weapons system (a good one). There again, if I was in a Dog fight !!!!

    My pick: the F-15.
  13. I'm with you here, Big.

    I would lean toward the P-38 Lightning. A close second would be the P-51D.
  15. But Marlin, I thought for sure you would want a ride in one of these:
