    Haven’t seen this posted up so- what is your favorite fictional flying machine/aircraft from any movie or TV series?

    I've always liked the starships from Star Wars. The A-Wing and speeder bike has always been my favorites. 8)

    Do spacecraft count? My all-time favorite is the original USS Enterprise, NCC-1701; no other spacecraft, before or since, looks like it.

    The original Battlestar Galactica was always cool to me.

    I always thought Sky Captain should've held out for the P-38 model. Two fuselages....think of all the toys Dex could hide in there!!!

    A P-38 could have stowed more stuff, for sure...but for the cool-retro factor, you just can't beat a P-40, unless it's something like a Lockheed Electra...

    I hate to point this out, but the pic is of a Klingon batlecruiser. This is a Bird-of-Prey:

    Well, if we're gonna talk spacecraft, then I'll go with "Romey"...uh, and the ship too...lol

    I though Andromeda Ascendant was just about as cool as it got...
