P-51 Mustang. IMHO, one of the most beautiful aircraft ever built.

Those are called "buses".

My favorites are the ones that take off, proceed with their flight and land...all without unscheduled breaks in the schedule such as "surprise" landings and midair "equipment incidents". I also dislike when two such aircraft unexpectedly "merge" but especially when it happens in the air.

Though I'm more of a sail-boat person, I do enjoy looking at photos of the old WWII planes. Don't really know the names of a lot of them.

For favourite aircraft, apart from agreeing with Baavgai and his X-Wing, I'd have to say that masterpiece of British engineering that became the middle finger of the hand raised to slap the Nazi menace - the Spitfire.

I dig ones that let you roll down the window and make your hand go up and down like a roller coaster in the wind.
