Topic: Favorite Military Aircraft.....

I am just curious to know what you favorite military aircraft is...fighter, bomber, cargo, etc...

My favorite is the C-5. I know allot of you don't like it because they do break down allot, but this plane goes against the law of physics. It's just NOT suppose to fly! If you have ever been on board and see how much cargo and weight this beautiful piece of flying machinery can carry it is just awesome. I have worked on all types of military planes over my years and I have just fallen in love with this plane. It just AWESOME to see it fully maxed out on weight and fuel load and watch her get off the ground. What do you guys think?
