    If it had the range, we wouldn't have needed the P-51. Beautiful aircraft!

    Whoa. Here we go with the matters of opinion again. I think a Mosquito is more beautiful than a Spitfire. And I think a P-39 ties it. Since you asked. ;)

    Spits are beautiful, particularly the early marks. Personally, I prefer the Mosquito. But my vote for most beautiful aircraft goes to another De Havilland product:

    There are aircraft more pleasing on the eye than the Spitfire. My personal favourite is the De Havilland DH.90 "Dragonfly",but nothing has the combination of looks and sound of a Merlin engined Spitfire.

    I love the Bf 109 but beautiful? I think not,definitely function over form,even in its slickest form in the "Friedrich".

    Cheers

    The Spit is fine Focke-Wulf_Fw_190D-9.jpg but the FW190 D9 is awesome.
