Possibly the most significant airplane in history is the Enola Gay, which on August 6, 1945, under the command of Colonel Paul W. Tibbets, Jr., flew on a mission to Hiroshima, Japan and dropped the world's first atomic bomb on a city, ultimately leading to the end of the second world war [Nikon D3]

I don't know if I agree if the Enola Gay is the most signicant aircraft in history, but I can not think of any other aircraft that would qualify for that honor, Wright Flyer? Piper Cub?
