Probably the Hurricane and the Messerschmit. Two amazing fighters.

Both out dated before WW2 even began.

Well...arguably. They had been around for a long time but many historians argue the Hurricane was nearly as good as the Spitfire. Not as good of course, but they do believe it could still do many things the Spitfire could. And of course we musn't forget it was actually the Hurricane that won the Battle of Britain not the Spitfire....mainly because there were more of them at the time.

No arguments from me, I just find it ironic that the two outstanding fighters of WW2 were out dated before the war even started.

Ok. That point I'll agree with!

The fighters were good, but the pilots were even better.
A hammer is just a hammer. While you and I might be lucky to build a birdhouse with only a few thumps on our thumbs, a professional carpenter can use it to make a mansion.
