tomtom22 said:For me it's the McDonnell F-4 Phantom II. First flown in May 1958, this plane has been used by the US Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force in many different roles as well as being used by 15 other nations including Japan, Korea, Great Britain and Austrailia.
The Phantom II has garnered a host of world speed and time-to-climb records. It is the first and only aircraft ever to be flown concurrently by both the Blue Angels and the Thunderbirds. The aircraft flew every traditional military mission: air superiority, close air support, interception, air defense suppression, long-range strike, fleet defense, attack and reconnaissance. Over 5000 were produced and although F-4s are no longer in the USAF inventory, (the last were F-4G Wild Weasels retired in 1995) they are still flown by a number of other nations.
