Well, not to nit-pick, but the F-117 isn't a fighter  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

My favorite is the F-15 with the F-23 comming in a close second.

I love the E-2 Hawkeye the best (I do know it's not a fighter plane, but I love it!). My favourite fighter plane would be the F-14 Tomcat. The F-15's pretty cool too.

I really can't decide which one I like the best, but my favourites are the SU-27, F-15, F-16, and the MiG-29.

fightingfalcon - is it more beutiful or not that is persona l opinion - but Sukhoi S-37 will propably see service, while X-29 is hanged on strings in National Air & Space museum in Washington
(I think both airplanes look great, I have seen only pics of S-37, and X-29 in person)

Technically the X-29 is not a fighter but a test bed.

I think the same thing can be said for the S-37 also but there is less info on that project.

Besides everbody knows the Supermarine Spitfire IX was the prettiest A/C around.

The old F-4 Phantom. It was probably the most unique looking jet fighter ever, and it was fast as hell.

hi,
the best ever was the de havilland dh-100 vampire, everybody knows that...  Wink/being sarcastic at least it looks pretty cool.
the spitfire series is also great, at least up to the time they started using RR griffin engines, they don't go well with the airframe.
today, the su-27 flanker would be my favourite...
jsb

p.s.: fightingfalcon, you're right, the typhoon today looks stupid, european air forces should buy russian jets  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
the wwII typhoon looks cool and was a great ground attack plane...

Hi!

Well fellows I still stay with my path, well I can't give again the Super Constellation as a fighter but it is a Lockheed product, this time its the:

F-104 Starfighter

I personally like better the G version then the A version, but that design is...... completely outstanding!!!!
Lockheed planes always where something really different, and the Starfighter is no exception, last time I saw one was in BA6 Beja in a Air Show, those involved where from Italy and I was just smashed.

Mine is the Spitfire, it was in my opinion the best looking fighter in WWII, most elegant and most manoevrable. I like the French built SPAD as well, that was a famous fighter in WWI. Military jets are not my cup of tea. Altough I much prefer airliners over military aircrafts, I still like some WWI and WWII fighters.
Others that I like are the Sopwith Camel, the Mustang and the Hurricane.

I remeber that NASA dumped the X-29 project because it sucked at speeds above 400mph. So i dont know about the SU-37. Anyways, the best figher is the F-15.

SU-508, X-29 did fly and fly well. It was never meant to enter production, which is why it never did.
S-37 is a hoax. Noone ever saw it in the air AFAIK. All photographs I've seen of it are on the ground and carefully engineered. Looks almost like the old days...

Jwenting,

I dont undeerstand what you mean...
If you want to see photographs of it in air go to "Russian 5th Generation Fighter" and click on one of my responces, there's a link.

What is a hoax?
You are wrong about nobody seeing it in the air. Maybe you didn't  Smile

Got a couple.

F86 series even the Dog sabre has a certain quality to it.

F106 sleek and deadly

Mirage 2000 typical classic French lines.

The role of the F-22 is'nt air sueriority, it's air dominance. It hasn't porved it yet because it is not operational. The S-37 Berkut is not stealth, and it is only a technoilogy demonstrator. The Russian A.F. proclaimed it would never go into service.

Russian AF claims that it has stealth capabilities, but not like raptor.
And I knew that berkuts wont enter in service a long time ago. Maybe if there will be enaugh money thew will buy su-54
